Abstract

Vegetative insecticidal proteins (Vips) represent the second generation of insecticidal trans-genes that will complement the Bacillus thuringiensis delta endotoxins in future. A new vip3A gene was cloned from the promising native isolate, B. thuringiensis JK37 obtained from the soils of maize...

Abstract

Objective: A novel Cry1Ab13 gene was cloned successfully by error-prone PCR technology to enrich gene resources for improving crop insect resistance using the Cry-type Bt gene. Method: The experiment conducted random mutagenesis on bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ab13 gene with error-prone PCR...

Abstract

In China, a substantial amount of literature addresses pest control in Bt cotton, which is genetically engineered to resist some target pests but which had no direct effects on many other pests. The impact of this technology was positive a few years after the commercial release, but this impact was ...

Abstract

Cry1A.105 is a Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) protein expressed in many Bt corn hybrids for controlling moth pests including the fall armyworm (FAW), Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith). The objective of this study was to compare the inheritance and fitness costs of two Cry1A.105-resistant FAW strains...

Abstract

Maize production in South Africa is negatively affected by Fusarium verticillioides, an endophytic maize pathogen, as well as by Busseola fusca larval damage. Fusarium verticillioides causes ear, stem and root rot, and also produces fumonisin mycotoxins which are toxic to humans and livestock. The...

Abstract

Genetic modification of Cry-proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a common practice in economically important crops to improve insecticide resistance and reduce the use of pesticides. However, introduction of these genes can have unintended side effects, which should be closely monitored for ...

Abstract

Adaptation to human-induced environmental change has the potential to profoundly influence the genomic architecture of affected species. This is particularly true in agricultural ecosystems, where anthropogenic selection pressure is strong. Heliothis virescens primarily feeds on cotton in its...

Abstract

Many types of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-crops are being grown worldwide, triggering concerns about their potential impact on humans and livestock. To ensure better yield and food safety in China, an attempt has been made to develop Bt-rice targeting a broad range of insects. We aimed to...

Abstract

Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria show insecticidal activities that rely upon the production of insecticidal crystal proteins, which are encoded by cry or cyt genes and can target a variety of insect pests. It has been shown that cry1Ac is the only cry gene in B. thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki HD73 (...

AbstractFull Text

The effects of Bt cotton (BG II) on the growth and nutritional indices of Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) (Lepidoptera : Noctuidae) were worked out for different larval instars from second to fifth instars separately with different plant parts of 75 days old Bt cotton viz., fully opened third leaf,...
