      Bacillus thuringiensis is the most successful microbial insecticide agent and its proteins have been studied for many years due to its toxicity against insects mainly belonging to the orders Lepidoptera, Diptera and ...
    • Novel application of bioassays and functional importance of minor crystal components of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar israelensis for dipteran pests 

      Valtierra de Luis, Daniel Upna Orcid (2020)   Tesis doctoral / Doktoretza tesia  OpenAccess
      Bacillus thuringiensis (Berliner, 1915) (Bt) es una bacteria Gram-positiva de forma redondeada que tiene la capacidad de formar esporas de resistencia. Bajo condiciones desfavorables, la bacteria esporula produciendo la ...
    • Overlapping transcription and bacterial RNA removal 

      Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna Orcid; Villanueva San Martín, Maite Upna Orcid (National Academy of Sciences, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The precise understanding of the biology of a living cell requires the identification and quantification of the molecular components necessary to sustain life. One such element is RNA. Two independent high-throughput ...
    • Potential of Cry10Aa and Cyt2Ba, two minority δ-endotoxins produced by Bacillus thuringiensis ser. israelensis, for the control of Aedes aegypti larvae 

      Valtierra de Luis, Daniel Upna Orcid; Villanueva San Martín, Maite Upna Orcid; Lai, Liliana Upna; Williams, Trevor Upna; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (MDPI, 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Bacillus thuringiensis ser. israelensis (Bti) has been widely used as microbial larvicide for the control of many species of mosquitoes and blackflies. The larvicidal activity of Bti resides in Cry and Cyt δ-endotoxins ...
    • Quantification of dose-mortality responses in adult Diptera: validation using Ceratitis capitata and Drosophila suzukii responses to spinosad
