Study of the Bacillus thuringiensis Vip3Aa16 histopathological effects and determination of its putative binding proteins in the midgut of Spodoptera littoralis
( Elsevier Inc. , 2011 , Article)
The bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis produces, at the vegetative stage of its growth, Vip3A proteins with activity against a broad spectrum of lepidopteran insects. The Egyptian cotton leaf worm (Spodoptera littoralis) is ...
Overproduction of Delta-Endotoxins by Sporeless Bacillusthuringiensis Mutants Obtained by Nitrous Acid Mutagenesis
( Springer-Verlag , 2011 , Article)
Asporogenic and oligosporogenic Bacillus thuringiensis mutants having the ability to overproduce insecticidal crystal protein were generated by using nitrous acid (50 mg/ml), as chemical mutagenic agent. Insecticidal crystal ...
Integration of a Recombinant Chitinase into Bacillus thuringiensis Parasporal Insecticidal Crystal
( Springer-Verlag , 2011 , Article)
Chitinases have been successfully used in combination with Bacillus thuringiensis delta-endotoxins forming crystals in order to enhance their insecticidal activities. In this context, we opted for promoting the chitinase ...
Enzymatic treatment of peanut butter to reduce the concentration of major peanut allergens
( John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. , 2013 , Article)
This study investigated the effects of enzymatic treatment of peanut butter on two-major peanut allergens (Ara h 1 and Ara h 2). Home-made and commercial peanut butter samples were treated with alpha-chymotrypsin, trypsin ...
Competition, facilitation, and niche differentiation in two foliar pathogens
( Springer Berlin / Heidelberg , 2004 , Article)
We studied competition between the obligate biotroph Puccinia triticina (designated here as Puccinia) and the facultative saprophyte Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (designated here as Pyrenophora) in older and younger leaves ...
Antifungal activities of an endophytic Pseudomonas fluorescens strain Pf1TZ harbouring genes from pyoluteorin and phenazine clusters
( Springer Netherlands , 2010 , Article)
Pseudomonas fluorescens Pf1TZ was inhibitory in vitro to a number of phytopathogenic fungi and could protect vine plantlets against Botrytis cinerea. Total protection was reached after 3 weeks of bacterial inoculation. The ...
Water stress and gibberellic acid effects on growth of fenugreek plants
( Springer Berlin / Heidelberg , 1998 , Article)
Fenugreek plant is susceptible to water stress during the vegetative growth stages, since a soil matric potential lower than -0.3 MPa causes substantial reduction in growth parameters such as height, weight and total leaf ...
Effects of Stocking Density and Feeding Levels on Growth Rates and Feed Utilization of Rabbitfish Siganus canaliculatus
( John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. , 1995 , Article)
Maintaining the genetic health of putative Barbary lions in captivity: an analysis of Moroccan Royal Lions
( Springer Berlin / Heidelberg , 2009 , Article)
The last representatives of the Barbary lion (Panthera leo leo), once numerous in North Africa but exterminated from the wild by the 1940s, are believed to be the captive lions descended from the Moroccan Royal Collection, ...
Evidence of the Involvement of E358, A498 and C571 of a New Cry1Ac δ-endotoxin of Bacillus thuringiensis in its High Insecticidal Activity Against Ephestia kuehniella
( Humana Press Inc , 2010 , Article)
A new cry1Ac-type gene was cloned from Bacillus thuringiensis strain BLB1, sequenced and expressed. The deduced amino acid sequence of the polypeptide has a predicted molecular mass of 132.186 kDa. The amino acid sequence ...
