Demonstration of a cholesterol-dependent cytolysin in a noninsecticidal Bacillus sphaericus strain and evidence for widespread distribution of the toxin within the species.

Abstract

During the course of screening Bacillus species from food and water in Norway, we isolated a strain of Bacillus sphaericus of DNA homology group V, not previously recognized to contain entomopathogenic strains, that was cytotoxic to Vero cell epithelia. Peptide mass fingerprinting of a protein purified from the culture supernatant of B. sphaericus B354… (More)
