Abstract:

Insect pests caused the yield loss in agricultural crops and forestry plants world widely. Commercial biopesticides based on Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) have been used for pest management. The most important factor that makes Bt as commercial biopesticides is its remarkable ability to produce large quantities of larvicidal proteins (known as Cry protein or delta-endotoxin) that form crystalline inclusion bodies during sporulation. However, use of Bt based biopesticides is limited due to high production cost of Bt based biopesticides. Therefore, using alternative raw materials with the low cost is very important. differences amongst the strains of B. thuringiensis have been reported among 21 strains of Bt, reported three protein banding patterns ranging from low molecular mass (35-66 kDa), medium molecular mass (66-80 kDa) and high molecular mass only (80-116 kDa.)
