Isolation and characterization of Bacillus thuringiensis strains from different grain habitats in Turkey
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium and it produces insecticidal crystal (cry) proteins during sporulation. Because the genetic diversity and toxic potential of Bt strains differ from ...
Cry1Ac-mediated resistance to tomato leaf miner (Tuta absoluta) in tomato
Tomato leaf miner (Tuta absoluta) is a major pest of tomato in regions with hot climates such as South America and the Mediterranean. This insect feeds on almost every part of the plant and forms galleries while feeding ...
Extracellular enzyme production and enterotoxigenic gene profiles of Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thuringiensis strains isolated from cheese in Turkey
The aim of the present study was to investigate the biochemical characteristics, extracellular enzyme production and enterotoxigenic genes contents of 6 Bacillus cereus and 22 Bacillus thuringiensis strains, isolated from ...
Isolation and characterization of Bacillus thuringiensis strains from olive-related habitats in Turkey
Aims: To isolate Bacillus thuringiensis strains from different olive-related habitats (olive groves and olive oil factories) in Turkey and to characterize these strains by molecular methods. Methods and Results: A total ...
Identification and bioactivity of native strains of Bacillus thuringiensis from grain-related habitats in Turkey
A native collection of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) strains originated from grain-related habitats in Turkey was characterized according to serotype, cry1 gene content, and bioactivity against Ephestia kuehniella (Lepidoptera: ...
