Insect-resistant transgenic crops: retrospect and challenges
Turkish Journal of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences
The advent of genetic engineering has revolutionized agriculture remarkably with the development of superior insect-resistant crop varieties harboring resistance against insect pests. Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been used as a main source for insect-resistant genes. In addition to Bt endotoxins, various plant lectins and other non-Bt genes from different sources have also been introduced in crop plants of economic importance. The insect-resistant crops have made a huge economic impactdoi:10.3906/tar-1408-69 fatcat:epl2o6wcvzenng5dyzd5tnagra
