CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for RNA interference strategy for crop protection against insect pests.

RNA interference (RNAi) has significantly accelerated functional genomic research on insects. Since its discovery, numerous reports have reported efforts to apply RNAi approaches to insect species lacking characterized genomes. The technique also has substantial potential for use in the control of...

Cover for Countering pest resistance with genetically modified Bt toxins.

Insecticidal crystalline (Cry) toxins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) used in sprays and transgenic crop plants have provided major benefits for pest control, including decreased reliance on broad-spectrum chemical insecticides. However, extensive use of Bt toxins has selected for...

Cover for Status of resistance to Bt cotton in China: cotton bollworm and pink bollworm.

Transgenic cotton that expresses a gene derived from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been deployed for combating the cotton pests Helicoverpa armigera and Pectinophora gossypiella since 1997 in China. The pest management tactics associated with Bt cotton have resulted in a drastic...

Cover for Roles of insect midgut cadherin in Bt intoxication and resistance.

Genetically engineered crops producing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) proteins for insect control target major insect pests. Bt crops have improved yields and their use reduces the risks associated with the application of conventional insecticides. However, the evolution of resistance to Bt toxins by...

Cover for Successes and failures of transgenic Bt crops: global patterns of field-evolved resistance.

Farmers planted genetically engineered crops that produce insecticidal proteins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) on a cumulative total of 570 million ha worldwide from 1996 to 2013. These Bt crops kill some key insect pests, yet they are not toxic to most other organisms, including...

Cover for Insect resistance to Bt toxins in Brazil and Latin America.

Bioinsecticides based on Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and transgenic plants expressing its toxins have been widely used to control insects in Latin America. In Brazil, during the season of 2013/14, 4 million ha were treated with Bt biopesticides, and the area of transgenic crops under cultivation...

Cover for Cry toxin binding site models and their use in strategies to delay resistance evolution.

The binding of Cry toxins to receptors on the midgut brush border membrane is a necessary step in the Cry intoxication process. Alterations in this binding step are commonly associated with high levels of resistance to Cry toxins in laboratory and field pest populations. When alterations affect...

Cover for Resistance management for Bt maize and above-ground lepidopteran targets in the USA: from single gene to pyramided traits.

Since first being commercialized in 1996, transgenic maize expressing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) proteins has gained widespread acceptance in the world. In 2013, nearly 50 Mha of Bt maize were planted in 15 countries. In the same year, growers in the USA alone planted c.30 Mha of Bt maize, which...
