Bacillus thuringiensis produces a large variety of insecticidal crystal proteins, which accumulates in large amounts during sporulation within the mother cell. The regulation of the cry gene is mostly determined at the transcriptional level. However, transcription alone cannot account for the ability of this bacterium to accumulate the 8-endotoxins and a series of post-transcrip-tional and post-translational mechanisms contribute to the efficient synthesis of these proteins.
