Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) was investigated in three different habitats (vegetable and crops-cultivated soils, phylloplanes and insect guts) of Bangladesh. A total of 61 Bacillus cereus-like isolates were obtained by selective methods and 57 of those were identified as Bacillus thuringiensis isolates based on their hemolytic activity, presence of parasporal crystal proteins, plasmid profile and crystal protein profile. The prevalence of Bt was highest (60%) in soil samples followed by leaf and… CONTINUE READING
