Abstract: A new gene encoding a 35.8-kDa mosquitocidal toxin (Mtx3; 326 amino acids) was isolated from Bacillus sphaericus SSII-1 DNA. Mtx3 is a new type of mosquitocidal toxin with homology to the Mtx2 mosquitocidal toxin of B. sphaericus SSII-1, the ε-toxin of Clostridium perfringens, and the cytotoxin of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The mtx3 gene is highly conserved and widely distributed in both high- and low-toxicity mosquito larvicidal strains of B. sphaericus.
