Variation in binding of Bacillus sphaericus toxin and wheat germ agglutinin to larval midgut cells of six species of mosquitoes.

Abstract

Bacillus sphaericus toxin labeled with fluorescein isothiocyanate was readily ingested by Culex pipiens, Aedes aegypti, Anopheles stephensi, Anopheles gambiae, Anopheles quadrimaculatus, and Anopheles albimanus larvae. Fluorescent toxin bound to the luminal cell surface in discrete regions of the posterior midgut and gastric caecum in C. pipiens. In… (More)
