Evidence for multiple mechanisms of resistance to Cry1Ac and Cry2A toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis in Heliothis virescens



Evidence for multiple mechanisms of resistance to Cry1Ac and Cry2A toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis in Heliothis virescens



Resistant Pest Management Newsletter 12(2): 42-44



Toxin-binding assays using radiolabelled Cry1A toxins were conducted to study the mechanism of resistance to the bacterial toxins in H. virescens strains CXC and KCBhyb. The strains were isolated and incubated with increasing concentrations of labelled Cry1A toxins to generate binding saturation curves.
