Preliminary bioassays with whole cultures (WC) of 124 Bacillus thuringiensis strains were performed with neonate larvae of Anthonomus grandis, a major cotton pest in Argentina and other regions of the Americas. Three exotic and four native strains were selected for causing more than 50% mortality. All of them were β-exotoxin producers. The native strains(More)
Some Bacillus thuringiensis strains secrete type I β-exotoxin, which is a non-specific insecticidal and thermostable adenine nucleoside oligosaccharide. Toxicity bioassays and HPLC are traditional methods for detecting β-exotoxin. With the aim of establish a first rapid approach for prediction of type I β-exotoxin production, two PCR-based methods were(More)
