An epoxide hydrolase selective for a trans-epoxide substrate is more commonly associated with arthropod herbivory than is a cis-selective epoxide hydrolase. The distinct selectivities in epoxide hydrolase activities between herbivorous pests and entomophagous arthropods used in their biological control may aid design of integrated pest management systems.
