Alpha-amylase inhibitors (α-Als) belong to the family of defence proteins which impede the digestion through their action on digestive α-amylases. These inhibitors have natural roles in the control of endogenous α-amylase activity or in defence against pathogens and pests. Certain inhibitors have...

AbstractFull Text

Survival and development of Earias vittella (Fabricius) was studied on four Bt cotton hybrids, one each from four different events, viz., MRC 6301 Bt (cry1Ac gene), JKCH 1947 Bt (modified cry1Ac gene), NCEH 6R Bt (fusion cry1Ac/cry1Ab gene) and MRC 7017 BG II (cry1Ac and cry2Ab genes) along with...
