    • Bacillus thuringiensis toxins: an overview of their biocidal activity 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna; Muñoz, Delia Upna; Berry, Colin; Murillo Martínez, Jesús Upna; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna (MDPI, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a Gram positive, spore-forming bacterium that synthesizes parasporal crystalline inclusions containing Cry and Cyt proteins, some of which are toxic against a wide range of insect orders, ...
    • A Chrysodeixis chalcites single-nucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus population from the Canary Islands is genotypically structured to maximize survival 

      Bernal Rodríguez, Alexandra Upna; Simón de Goñi, Oihane; Williams, Trevor Upna; Muñoz, Delia Upna; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A Chrysodeixis chalcites single-nucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus wild-type isolate from the Canary Islands, Spain, named ChchSNPV-TF1 (ChchTF1-wt), appears to have great potential as the basis for a biological insecticide ...
    • Draft genome sequences of two bacillus thuringiensis strains and characterization of a putative 41.9-kDa insecticidal toxin 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna; Muñoz, Delia Upna; Berry, Colin; Murillo Martínez, Jesús Upna; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna (MDPI, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      In this work, we report the genome sequencing of two Bacillus thuringiensis strains using Illumina next-generation sequencing technology (NGS). Strain Hu4-2, toxic to many lepidopteran pest species and to some mosquitoes, ...
    • Mixtures of complete and pif1- and pif2-deficient genotypes are required for increased potency of an insect nucleopolyhedrovirus 

      Clavijo Palacios, Gabriel; Williams, Trevor Upna; Simón de Goñi, Oihane; Muñoz, Delia Upna; Cerutti, Martine; López Ferber, Miguel; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2009)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The insecticidal potency of a nucleopolyhedrovirus population (SfNIC) that infects Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera) is greater than the potency of any of the component genotypes alone. Occlusion bodies (OBs) produced ...
    • Vip3C, a novel class of vegetative insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna; Hernández Rodríguez, Carmen Sara; Maeztu Martínez, Mireya; Hernández Martínez, Patricia; Ruiz de Escudero Fuentemilla, Íñigo; Escriche, Baltasar; Muñoz, Delia Upna; Rie, Jeroen van; Ferré, Juan; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Three vip3 genes were identified in two Bacillus thuringiensis Spanish collections. Sequence analysis revealed a novel Vip3 protein class (Vip3C). Preliminary bioassays of larvae from 10 different lepidopteran species ...
