A Bacillus thuringiensis
S-layer protein involved in toxicity against Epilachna varivestis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae).
The diversity is achieved through the placement of the genetic tags in the bacillus thuringiensis
All Bacillus thuringiensis
and Bacillus atrophaeus spores tested showed a dose-dependant reduction in spore numbers, but they were not reduced below detection level by any MB concentration tested.
Pseudomonas flourescens strains modified with Cry delta endotoxin genes from Bacillus thuringiensis
are killed before being marketed.
Immune responses in farm workers after exposure to Bacillus thuringiensis
To combat the pest, scientists isolated genes from a soil bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis
(Bt), which produces a toxin, or poison, that kills insects.
have resolved a significant patent dispute regarding the use of Bacillus thuringiensis
(Bt) insect-resistance technology in corn.
KEY WORDS: exclusive PCR; denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis: cry4 gene; Bacillus thuringiensis
Loeb used tobacco bud worm gut cells, cultured in the laboratory, to help under stand how this insect -- a major caterpillar pest of cot ton, soybeans and tomatoes -- becomes resistant to the natural toxin produced by the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis
For example, they have created a class of highly successful insect-resistant crops by incorporating toxin genes from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis
This corn was spliced with a gene from the bacteria, Bacillus thuringiensis
, which acts as a natural pesticide.
