Endosymbionts mediated detoxification of insecticides in insects

Author(s): Godavari, Ashoka KS, Kiran Kumar H and Bharathi MC
Abstract: Insects face a world saturated with toxins due to widespread pesticide use in various settings. While herbivorous insects primarily rely on their own genomic mechanisms for resistance, recent omics analyses unveil the presence of specific microorganisms in some insects. These symbiotic microbes play an important role in pesticide degrading, offering insights into the genetic basis of symbiont-mediated detoxification. This review underscores the significance of environmental microbiota in serving as a reservoir for microorganisms capable of degrading toxins. explores the ecological and evolutionary implications of such symbiotic associations, and discusses their potential impact on pesticide development and pest control as well as it focuses on how endosymbionts are effectively utilized in pest management.
