Evidence of the Involvement of E358, A498 and C571 of a New Cry1Ac δ-endotoxin of Bacillus thuringiensis in its High Insecticidal Activity Against Ephestia kuehniella
( Humana Press Inc , 2010 , Article)
A new cry1Ac-type gene was cloned from Bacillus thuringiensis strain BLB1, sequenced and expressed. The deduced amino acid sequence of the polypeptide has a predicted molecular mass of 132.186 kDa. The amino acid sequence ...
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 ...
Comparative study of Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ia and Cry1Aa delta-endotoxins : activation process and toxicity against Prays oleae
( Elsevier Inc. , 2010 , Article)
Cry1Ia and Cry1Aa proteins exhibited toxicities against Prays oleae with LC(50) of 189 and 116 ng/cm(2), respectively. The ability to process Cry1Ia11 protoxin by trypsin, chymotrypsin and P. oleae larvae proteases was ...
