Synergistic effects of agonists and antagonists in insect venoms - a natural way of insecticidal action

, : Synergistic effects of agonists and antagonists in insect venoms - a natural way of insecticidal action. Pesticide Science 19(4): 317-322

Contrary to the typical killing action of most animal venoms, including social wasp (vespid) venoms, the solitary wasp venoms seem to have evolved to paralyse the prey. This suggests a specific action on parts of the nervous system. However, the solitary wasp venoms studied (those of Philanthus triangulum and Megascolia flavifrons), contain many agonists and antagonists of synaptic transmission, and their paralysing action is very complicated.
