Specific PCR primers directed to identify cryI and cryIII genes within a Bacillus thuringiensis strain collection.

Abstract

In this paper we describe a PCR strategy that can be used to rapidly identify Bacillus thuringiensis strains that harbor any of the known cryI or cryIII genes. Four general PCR primers which amplify DNA fragments from the known cryI or cryIII genes were selected from conserved regions. Once a strain was identified as an organism that contains a particular… (More)
