Competition and reproduction in mixed infections of pathogenic and non-pathogenic Bacillus spp.

Abstract:

Diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella, larvae were infected with a primary pathogen, Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki (Btk) in single strain and mixed infections. Mixed infections comprised Btk and a non-pathogenic isolate, either Bacillus thuringiensis tenebrionis (Btt) or Bacillus cereus (Bc). All strains reproduced in larval cadavers, but there was evidence of competition between different isolates within hosts. Non-pathogenic isolates (Btt, Bc) had growth rates that were faster than Btk in...
