This volume ofAdvances in Insect Physiologycontains comprehensive interdisciplinary reviews on basic and practical aspects relevant to major target receptors for crucial physiological functions and mechanisms in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, particularly insects. Chapters emphasize advanced genomic, molecular biology, chemical, and proteomic research on the receptors and their corresponding agonist and antagonist ligands. The book encompasses target systems such as sodium channels, octopamine/tyramine receptors, ABC transporters, acetylcholinesterase as a target enzyme, juvenile hormone receptors, and receptors targeted by neuropeptides.

  • Contains important, comprehensive and in-depth reviews
  • An essential reference source for invertebrate physiologists and neurobiologists, entomologists, zoologists, and insect biochemists
  • First published in 1963, this serial is ranked second in the highly competitive ISI category of Entomology
