Example text

Thuringiensis proteins have been transformed by one of two techniques. One method uses ‘disarmed’ Agrobacterium tumefaciens bacteria to transfer foreign DNA into host cells. , 1994). The level of expression, and plant tissue location, of the transgenic proteins is dependent on a component of the transgenic gene construct known as the promoter sequence. If the promoter is ‘constitutive’, such as the commonly used 35S promoter from cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV), then transgenic protein production occurs in most plant tissues.

In the foreseeable future, it is expected that the need for new or improved bioassays as useful tools for developing rational control strategies with B. thuringiensis will continue. t.

Cap centrifuge tube containing insect diet + sample and blend for at least 15–20 s using a vortex mixer (battery-powered hand-held mixers can also be used). 0 ml) of treated diet into individual wells of a multiwell assay tray. • To prepare larger (Ն 40 ml) samples, add diet to sample (4:1 ratio) in blender, blend, then pour treated diet directly into 32-, 50- or 96-well trays. Smaller capacity (< 1 litre) blenders work better with small test samples. Wash blender thoroughly with hot soapy water and rinse between treatments.
