Abstract

Transgenic crops have revolutionized insect pest control, but their effectiveness has been reduced by evolution of resistance in pests. We analyzed global monitoring data reported during the first two decades of transgenic crops, with each case representing the responses of one pest species in one...

Abstract

Using Bt cotton conventional cultivar Sikang 1 and hybrid Sikang 3 as test materials, the experiments of water stress at different levels (relative soil water capacity at 90%, 100%, and 2 cm waterlogging above the soil surface respectively) and 90% soil water capacity remained 24-120 hours were...

Abstract

Transgenic rice expressing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Cry toxins are resistant to lepidopteran pests, such as Chilo suppressalis, a major insect pest of rice in Asia. Understanding how these toxins interact with their hosts is crucial to understanding their insecticidal action. In this study,...

Abstract

A plasmid and two isocaudamer systems, namely, NotI/Bsp120I and SpeI/XbaI/NheI, were used to construct a new type of multi-gene plant transformation vector system. This system included a transformation vector containing the restriction enzyme cutting sites Bsp120I and XbaI as well as a cloning...

Abstract

One important concern regarding the use of transgenic cotton expressing insecticidal toxins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is its potential detrimental effect on non-target organisms. The honey bee (Apis mellifera) is the most important pollinator species worldwide and it is...

Abstract

To expand the usage of endophytes in agriculture and in forestry, the insecticidal gene cry218 of Bacillus thuringiensis was introduced into a poplar bacterial endophyte Burkholderia pyrrocinia JKSH007. The cry218 gene was cloned by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and was inserted into a PHKT2...

Abstract

The uncertainty of ecological risks and the effects of growing transgenic Bt rice on the environment hamper its commercial production. Here, soil nematode communities were used as an indicator of soil health and soil food web structure to evaluate the potential effects of growing Bt rice without...

Abstract

The time-mortality responses of Cry1Ac-susceptible and -selective Chilo suppressalis strains, variations in the two strains' susceptibility to different Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) insecticidal proteins, and synergism of different Bt protein combinations on C. suppressalis were studied. In the...
