Univalent binding of the Cry1Ab toxin of Bacillus thuringiensis to a conserved structural motif in the cadherin receptor BT-R1.

Abstract

The Cry1Ab toxin produced by Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) exerts insecticidal action upon binding to BT-R1, a cadherin receptor localized in the midgut epithelium of the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta [Dorsch, J.
