Hi,

> I am a first year PhD student in the Dept. Zoology at the 
> University of Aberdeen, Scotland.  I am studying the 
> cellular mode of action of a tetranortriterpenoid known as 
> azadirachtin (renowned for its insecticidal properties).  
> We know that azadirachtin interferes/blocks the release of 
> neurohormones from the corpora cardiaca, thus preventing 
> many insect species from moulting.

> In light of what is happening in the ecdysone/ultraspiracle 
> protein receptor story in Drosophila I thought it would be 
> nice to see what happens when this compound is introduced.

> I was wondering if you could direct my query to labs which
