Mode of Action

Chlorantraniliprole, the active ingredient in Acelepryn is a synthetic compound that affects the ryanodine receptors in the insect muscle fibre. Acelepryn binds to the ryanodine receptor and causes it to remain open, resulting in a depletion of calcium ions that disrupts muscle contraction.

Mode of Action: Ryanodine receptor modulator

Class of Chemistry

Acelepryn is the first turf product featuring an active ingredient from the anthranilic diamide class of chemistry. This class was inspired by research into the insecticidal properties of ryanodine – a natural substance found in the bark of trees and shrubs of the genus Ryania.

IRAC Group: 28
