Cloning and Characterization of a Novel Crystal Protein from a Native Bacillus thuringiensis Isolate Highly Active Against Aedes aegypti


We characterized a novel Bacillus thuringiensis isolate native to Argentina (FCC 41) that exhibits a mosquitocidal activity higher than the reference B. thuringiensis subsp. israelensis. This isolate shows a rounded crystal harboring two major proteins of about 70–80 kDa. Moreover, we cloned and sequenced the encoding gene of one of the crystal proteins… (More)
