Entomological Society of America announces 2013 fellows
Date:7/31/2013

ed P450 enzymes, the CYP4Gs specific to insects, are responsible for the last step in cuticular hydrocarbon biosynthesis. The evolution of the CYP4G enzymes is a key innovation that contributed to the colonization of land by insects. Beyond the essential physiological functions of P450 enzymes, Feyereisen's laboratory also showed the role of P450 enzymes in insecticide detoxification and resistance, and in host plant adaptation. From the first sequence of an insect P450 gene and functional expression of recombinant protein, to the annotation of the hundreds of CYP genes in the genomes of insects and mites, his laboratory has continued to make important contributions to our understanding of the diversity of P450 genes. Feyereisen currently focuses on the evolution of this very large family of versatile enzymes in arthropods.

In addition to his research, Feyereisen has served on the editorial committee of the Annual Review of Entomology and on the editorial boards of Archives of Insect Biochemistry and Physiology and of Pesticide Biochemistry and Physiology. Since 2002 he has been co-editor of the top-ranked journal Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. He has published over 170 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters and has written influential reviews on JH biosynthesis, insecticide resistance, and on P450 enzymes. He has served as mentor to numerous undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows from around the world. Past honors include a Faculty Excellence Award from the Oregon State Board of Higher Education, the 2011 Distinguished Scientist Award from the International Branch of ESA, and the 2013 International Award for Research in Agrochemicals from the American Chemical Society's Agrochemicals Division.

DR. RALF NAUEN, a Bayer CropScience Research Fellow working at Bayer CropScience (BCS) in Monheim, Germany, is internationally recognized for his research in insect toxicology and resistance, which has focused on inse
