DESIGN

Bacillus thuringiensis

A Gram-positive, soil-dwelling bacterium, commonly used as a biological pesticide.

How it works

Upon sporulation, B. thuringiensis forms crystals of proteinaceous insecticidal δ-endotoxins called crystal proteins or Cry proteins. When insects ingest toxin crystals, their alkaline digestive tracts denature the insoluble crystals, making them soluble and thus amenable to being cut with proteases found in the insect gut, which liberate the toxin from the crystal. The Cry toxin is then inserted into the insect gut cell membrane, paralyzing the digestive tract and forming a pore. The insect stops eating and starves to death. Live Bt bacteria may also colonize the insect, which can contribute to death.

As Bio-insecticide

Spores and crystalline insecticidal proteins produced by B. thuringiensis have been used to control pests in organic farming and is regarded as an environmentally friendly pesticide, with little or no effect on humans, wildlife, pollinators, and most other beneficial insects.

Cry toxins have specific activities against insect species of the orders Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies), Diptera (flies and mosquitoes), Coleoptera (beetles), Hymenoptera (wasps, bees, ants and sawflies) and nematodes.
