Study of the Bacillus thuringiensis Vip3Aa16 histopathological effects and determination of its putative binding proteins in the midgut of Spodoptera littoralis
( Elsevier Inc. , 2011 , Article)
The bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis produces, at the vegetative stage of its growth, Vip3A proteins with activity against a broad spectrum of lepidopteran insects. The Egyptian cotton leaf worm (Spodoptera littoralis) is ...
Susceptibility of Agrotis segetum (noctuidae) to Bacillus thuringiensis and analysis of midgut proteinases
( Taylor & Francis , 2015 , Article)
Seventy-eight Bacillus thuringiensis isolates were selected for a screening against the Lepidoptera species Agrotis segetum to search the higher insecticidal activity. In a preliminary bioassay, the spore-crystal mixture ...
Characterization of tunisian Bacillus thuringiensis strains with abundance of kurstaki subspecies harbouring insecticidal activities against the lepidopteran insect ephestia kuehniella
( Springer US , 2010 , Article)
The study of 257 crystal-producing Bacillus thuringiensis isolates from bioinsecticide free soil samples collected from different sites in Tunisia, was performed by PCR amplification, using six primer pairs specific for ...
Potential of Photorhabdus temperata K122 bioinsecticide in protecting wheat flour against Ephestia kuehniella
( Elsevier Ltd. , 2013 , Article)
The present study reports investigations on the insecticidal activity of the entomopathogenic bacterium Photorhabdus temperata K122 against the Mediterranean flour moth Ephestia kuehniella. Cultured in the optimized medium, ...
Agrotis segetum midgut putative receptor of Bacillus thuringiensis vegetative insecticidal protein Vip3Aa16 differs from that of Cry1Ac toxin
( Elsevier Inc. , 2013 , Article)
Considering the fact that Agrotis segetum is one of the most pathogenic insects to vegetables and cereals in the world, particularly in Africa, the mode of action of Vip3Aa16 of Bacillus thuringiensis BUPM95 and Cry1Ac of ...
Vegetative insecticidal protein of Bacillus thuringiensis BLB459 and its efficiency against Lepidoptera
( Elsevier Ltd , 2017 , Article)
Bacillus thuringiensis strain BLB459 supernatant showed a promising activity against Lepidopteran pests with extremely damages in the larvae midgut. Investigations of the genes that encode secreted toxin demonstrated that ...
