Bacillus sphaericus produces a mosquitocidal binary toxin composed of two subunits, BinA (42 kDa) and BinB (51 kDa). Both components are required for maximum toxicity against mosquito larvae. BinB has been proposed to provide specificity by binding to the epithelial gut cell membrane, while BinA may be responsible for toxicity. To identify regions in BinB responsible for receptor binding and for interaction to BinA, we used six BinB shorter constructs derived from both the N-terminal and the C… CONTINUE READING
