Dr. Niam Quinn and Dr. Toni Piaggio are leading groundbreaking research on genetic mutations in rats that provide resistance to second-generation rodenticides at the National Wildlife Research Center.
The study focuses on the VKORC1 gene, which produces the VKOR enzyme responsible for blood clotting and targeted by various anticoagulant rodenticides. The researchers aim to identify mutations in the VKORC1 gene to enhance understanding of how rats can withstand these toxic substances.
This study has significant implications for rodent control and wildlife management.
