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 ...
Construction of a Bacillus thuringiensis genetically-engineered strain harbouring the secreted Cry1Ia delta-endotoxin in its crystal
( Springer Netherlands , 2011 , Article)
Unlike other Bacillus thuringiensis Cry proteins, Cry1 Ia does not form a crystal since it is a secreted delta-endotoxin. We have engineered a Cry1 Iac chimeric protein by substituting the C-terminal part of Cry1 Ia by the ...
Improvement of Bacillus thuringiensis bioinsecticide production by sporeless and sporulating strains using response surface methodology
( Elsevier B.V. , 2011 , Article)
Statistical experimental designs, involving a Plackett-Burman design followed by a rotatable central composite design were used to optimize the culture medium constituents for Bacillus thuringiensis bioinsecticide production. ...
