Sublethal effects of pyriproxyfen, a juvenile hormone
analogue, on Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae): life table study.
Transcription patterns of the studied genes indicated that TBT activated the transcription of RXR receptor, as it has been reported in gastropods and vertebrates, and altered the ecdysone and juvenile hormone
receptor signaling pathways as reported in other studies.

Cellular and molecular actions of juvenile hormone
I: general considerations and premetamorphic actions.
Pyriproxyfen is a pyridine based juvenile hormone
analogue pesticide, which is found to be effective against a variety of insect pests, preventing larvae from developing into adulthood and thus rendering them unable to reproduce.
This observation of a CRF exhibiting inhibition in adult emergence for a period of more than two months could be compared to the efficacy of methoprene, a widely used juvenile hormone
mimic, formulated as 30-day slow release Altosid pellets for controlling mosquitoes in underground storm water drainage catch basins.
Abstract: Insect growth regulators have been proposed as an alternative for the control of insect pests because they interfere with normal development, mimicking juvenile hormone
and molting hormone or interfering with chitin synthesis.
Tom had broad interests even then, ranging from synthesis of juvenile hormone
analogs as green pesticides to resistance management, to his thesis work on the fundamental biochemistry of how butterflies and moths undergo metamorphosis.
Research work had shown that juvenile hormone
is linked to task performance; it has been proposed to be the driving factor, pushing workers to become foragers .

Furthermore, I describe how an early single control experiment led to the identification of an elusive gene in a biochemical pathway for the synthesis of juvenile hormone
, a key hormone in insect development.
