Cuticular lipids of insects as potential biofungicides

Abstrakt

The term ''lipids'' refers to fatty acids, their derivatives and substances related with them biochemically or by the functions in the body. Lipids include compounds with different chemical structure. There are lipids with structures based on long-chain carboxylic acids and their direct derivatives, namely: fatty acids, alkanes, some alkenes, aldehydes and long chain alcohols and their derivatives (esters). The variety of lipid structures reflects the diversity of their functions in living organisms. Each species of insects has its own unique set of compounds that are a part of the surface and internal lipids. Knowledge of insect resistance to fungal infections is still insufficient. Separation of these compounds, which are responsible for resistance against entomopathogenic fungi, could be a key to create biofungicides, which will affect only certain groups or species, and thus allow for more effective fight against fungi.
