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.
