|Title:||Expression of mosquitocidal toxin genes in a gas-vacuolated strain of Ancylobacter aquaticus||Authors:||Wai Ho Yap
|Issue Date:||1994||Citation:||Wai Ho Yap,Thanabalu, T.,Porter, A.G. (1994). Expression of mosquitocidal toxin genes in a gas-vacuolated strain of Ancylobacter aquaticus. Applied and Environmental Microbiology 60 (11) : 4199-4202. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||A series of plasmids bearing the binary toxin genes of Bacillus sphaericus 2297 or 2317.3, the 100-kDa toxin gene of B. sphaericus SSII-1, or the 130- kDa (cryIVB) toxin gene of Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis were constructed and introduced into Ancylobacter aquaticus by electroporation. The transformed A. aquaticus cells exhibited significant toxicity towards mosquito larvae, demonstrating a potential use of recombinant A. aquaticus for biological control of mosquitoes.||Source Title:||Applied and Environmental Microbiology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/112172||ISSN:||00992240|
