    • Bacillus thuringiensis toxins: an overview of their biocidal activity 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna Orcid; Muñoz Labiano, Delia Upna Orcid; Berry, Colin; Murillo Martínez, Jesús Upna Orcid; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (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, ...
    • Draft genome sequence of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar tolworthi strain Na205-3, an isolate toxic for Helicoverpa armigera 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna Orcid; Muñoz, Delia Upna Orcid; Murillo Martínez, Jesús Upna Orcid; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (American Society for Microbiology, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      We report here the complete annotated 6,510,053-bp draft genome sequence of Bacillus thuringiensis serovar tolworthi strain Na205-3, which is toxic for Helicoverpa armigera. This strain potentially contains nine insecticidal ...
    • Draft genome sequence of Photorhabdus luminescens strain DSPV002N isolated from Santa Fe, Argentina 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna Orcid; Valle, Eleodoro E. del; Frizzo, Laureano; Berry, Colin; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (American Society for Microbiology, 2016)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Photorhabdus luminescens strain DSPV002N, which consists of 177 contig sequences accounting for 5,518,143 bp, with a G+C content of 42.3% and 4,701 predicted protein-coding genes ...
    • Draft genome sequences of two bacillus thuringiensis strains and characterization of a putative 41.9-kDa insecticidal toxin 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna Orcid; Muñoz Labiano, Delia Upna Orcid; Berry, Colin; Murillo Martínez, Jesús Upna Orcid; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (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, ...
    • Molecular and insecticidal characterization of a novel cry-related protein from bacillus thuringiensis toxic against Myzus persicae 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna Orcid; Muñoz Labiano, Delia Upna Orcid; Berry, Colin; Murillo Martínez, Jesús Upna Orcid; Escudero, Iñigo de; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (MDPI, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      This study describes the insecticidal activity of a novel Bacillus thuringiensis Cry-related protein with a deduced 799 amino acid sequence (~89 kDa) and ~19% pairwise identity to the 95-kDa-aphidicidal protein (sequence ...
    • Vip3C, a novel class of vegetative insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis 

      Palma Dovis, Leopoldo Upna Orcid; Hernández Rodríguez, C.; Maeztu Martínez, Mireya Upna; Hernández Martínez, Patricia; Ruiz de Escudero Fuentemilla, Íñigo Upna Orcid; Escriche, Baltasar; Muñoz Labiano, Delia Upna Orcid; Rie, Jeroen van; Ferré, Juan; Caballero Murillo, Primitivo Upna Orcid (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 ...
