High impact information on Ortho spotless

  • However, P-450SG1 showed no lanosterol 14 alpha-demethylase activity and its mode of interaction with diniconazole [(E)-1-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-4,4-dimethyl-2-(1,2,4-triazol-1-y1)-1- penten-3- o1], a specific inhibitor of P-450(14DM), was fundamentally different from that of P-450(14DM) [1].
  • These observations suggest that P-450/14DM discriminates enantiomers of diniconazole and the R(-) isomer is more favorably fit for the active site of the cytochrome [2].
  • Spotless wings (sl) and 2nd-3rd costal spots fused (2-3f) have been mapped on chromosome 2, approximately 79.5 map units apart [3].
  • The toxicological significance in humans is extremely low and it is unlikely that diniconazole would increase thyroid tumor in humans even if diniconazole were to alter normal thyroid hormone level in humans [4].
