Dov Borovsky, Ph.D., of Insect Biotechnology, Inc. (Redwood City, Calif.) and Brian Federici, Ph.D., of the University of California at Riverside, are working on new ways to destroy mosquito larvae.

Dr. Borovsky is scheduled to begin initial field trials, closely monitored by NIAID and the Environmental Protection Agency, of a novel larvicide based on a naturally occurring peptide (short protein) that causes mosquito larvae to starve to death.

Scientists have genetically modified tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) so that it produces a natural, environmentally friendly insecticide, turning the pathogen into a microscopic chemical factory, said Dov Borovsky, an entomologist with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

"This is the first time we know of that anybody put … tobacco mosaic virus [on] something that actually can act as an insecticide and protect the plant," said Borovsky, lead author of the paper. Tobacco mosaic virus is commonly used in genetic research because genes can be added to it easily.
The chemical, known as trypsin-modulating oostatic factor, or TMOF, stops insects from producing a crucial digestive enzyme called trypsin, he said.
