Limitations of HPLC for the detection of β-exotoxin in culture filtrates of Bacillus thuringiensis


High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to detect and quantify β-exotoxin, a phosphorylated adenine nucleotide derivative produced as an excreted metabolite by several strains of Bacillus thuringiensis. The assay was rapid and quantitative for purified β-exotoxin standards. However, peak height failed to correlate β-exotoxin concentration in… (More)
