Genetic engineering of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis genes for biocontrol of mosquito vectors of diseases in tropical regions



Genetic engineering of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis genes for biocontrol of mosquito vectors of diseases in tropical regions



Israel Journal of Entomology 1990; 23: 219-225



To make efficient application of the endotoxin proteins for biocontrol of mosquitoes in Thailand, an attempt was made to identify mosquito-larvicidal endotoxin genes of B. t. israelensis by molecular cloning of the DNA fragments in Escherichia coli. Two genes encoding ~130-kDa proteins, each highly toxic to Aedes aegypti larvae, were obtained. The complete nucleotide sequence of one gene revealed a regulatory sequence and the structural gene encoding 1136 amino acids.
