Bacillus thuringiensis as a specific, safe, and effective tool for insect pest control.
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) was first described by Berliner [10] when he isolated a Bacillus species from the Mediterranean flour moth, Anagasta kuehniella, and named it after the province ThuringiaExpand
Analysis of Genes Expression of Spodoptera exigua Larvae upon AcMNPV Infection
Background The impact of Autographa californica multicapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) infection on host gene expression in Spodoptera exigua 4th instar larvae was investigated through the use ofExpand

Cotesia plutellae polydnaviruses (CpBV) has a segmented genome consisting of multiple circular double stranded DNAs. Recently, we have developed an easy, simple, and convenient system based on Tn7Expand
Detection of Japanese Encephalitis Virus Genotype V in Culex orientalis and Culex pipiens (Diptera: Culicidae) in Korea
Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) causes significant viral encephalitis and is distributed throughout the Asian countries. The virus is known to be transmitted by Culex tritaeniorhynchus, whichExpand
Coincidence between Geographical Distribution of Leptotrombidium scutellare and Scrub Typhus Incidence in South Korea
To clarify the geographical distribution of scrub typhus vectors in Korea, a survey of larval trombiculid mites was conducted from 2005 to 2007 by collecting wild small mammals twice a year (springExpand
Molecular and phylogenetic characterization of Spodoptera litura granulovirus
Baculovirus, Spodoptera litura granulovirus (SlGV) was isolated from the infected S. litura larvae, and was characterized. The granule of SlGV was ovoidal shape with an approximate size of 240∼340Expand
Isolation and Characterization of a Lymantria dispar Multinucleocapsid Nucleopolyhedrovirus Isolate in Korea
In Korea, a Lymantria dispar multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus, LdMNPV-NM, was isolated and characterized from dead L. dispar larvae. The polyhedra of LdMNPV-NM were irregularly shaped with aExpand

ABSTRACT A novel recombinant baculovirus, NeuroBactrus, was constructed to develop an improved baculovirus insecticide with additional beneficial properties, such as a higher insecticidal activityExpand
Baculovirus expression vectors that incorporate the foreign protein into viral occlusion bodies.
Current baculovirus expression systems typically produce soluble proteins that accumulate within the infected insect cell or are secreted into the growth medium. A system has now been developed forExpand
