Abstract

The present studies demonstrated that non-host plant PIs were effective in inhibiting the isoproteinases and larval growth of H. armigera. Larval growth and development were reduced when fed on non-host plant PIs in artificial diet. Among the non-host plant PIs, Datura alba ness resulted in highest stunted growth. Non-host plant PIs have the potential to inhibit the growth of H. armigera larvae, which provides the basis for deploying these PI is in insect-resistant transgenic plants. Further research should focus on developing transgenic plants that express higher level of potent PIs to achieve protection against H. armigera.
