How it works
Although Belanty is classified as a Group 3 fungicide, its hybrid ‘isopropanol-azole’ molecule is the first of its type and unique among demethylation inhibitors (DMIs).
The triazole ‘head’ of the molecule sits on the ‘neck’ of a slim isopropanol unit. That isopropanol component folds into a hook shape as the molecule switches from its unbound conformation to the bound one and docks with its target enzyme.
The formulation of the Belanty molecule promotes rapid uptake and enables it to bind much more strongly than other triazoles to the target enzyme: C 14-demethylase.
