Abstract Genes encoding the mosquitocidal binary toxin of Bacillus sphaericus 2362 were introduced into Synechococcus PCC6301, a cyanobacterium that can tolerate a number of potential variations in the mosquito breeding environment, and can serve as a food source for mosquito larvae. The toxin genes, preceded by a Synechococcus rbcL promoter, were located on a mobilizable Escherichia coli Synechococcus shuttle vector, which was introduced into Synechococcus PCC6301 at frequencies of 10−5–10−7… CONTINUE READING
