Factors influencing lethality of Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki toxin for eggs and larvae of Trichostongylus colubriformis (nematoda)

Authors: Meadows, J., Gill, S.S., Bone, L.W.
Journal, Volume, Year: The Journal of Parasitology, volume 75(2):191-194, 1989
Summary

Isolates from Btk were shown to be toxic to eggs and 1st and 2nd larval stages of the nematode Trichostrongylus colubriformis.

Comments

Mode of action was uncertain (perhaps membrane permeability). Unclear if toxicity is due to delta-endotoxin or beta-exotoxin.
