Larvae of the mosquitoAedes aegypti ingested, and developed into adults, on a diet of 1O of 14 different species of cyanobacteria includingAgmenellum quadruplicatum PR-6 (=Synechococcus PCC7002). Mosquito larvae ingested and grew on cells of PR-6 adapted to growth in the absence of NaCl. ThecryIVD gene ofBacillus thuringiensis var.israelensis was cloned into a PR-6 expression vector to form pAQRM56, which was transformed into PR-6. Expression of the CryIVD protein in PR-6 was demonstrated by… CONTINUE READING
