Peritrophic membrane contribution to Bt Cry delta-endotoxin susceptibility in Lepidoptera and the effect of Calcofluor.

Abstract

In an effort to determine a reason for differing susceptibilities to Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Cry delta-endotoxins amongst lepidopteran species, the peritrophic membrane (PM), and a number of agents that target the PM, were investigated to determine their effect on the efficacy of Bt toxins. In particular Calcofluor is able to disrupt the PM that acts as… (More)
