3. Plant to insect horizontal gene transfer: empowering whiteflies.

Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is a well-documented evolutionary driving phenomenon in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, but its impact on the plant kingdom has remained elusive. A recent study provides compelling evidences, which support the idea that a plant-derived gene allows for the detoxification...

12. Ion channels and G protein-coupled receptors as targets for invertebrate pest control: from past challenges to practical insecticides.

In the late 1970s, we discovered that toxic bicyclic phosphates inhibit the generation of miniature inhibitory junction potentials, implying their antagonism of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors (GABARs; GABA-gated chloride channels). This unique mode of action provided a strong incentive for...
