Bacillus sphaericus (Bs) binary toxin was purified from recombinant E. coli DH5alpha harboring the recombinant plasmid pAR5, which carries a 3.6-kb DNA fragment of Bs 1593M encoding mosquito larvicidal activity. The binary toxin preparation, designated BsEcAg, contained mainly 51- and 42-kDa toxin proteins and was toxic to 50% of Culex quinquefasciatus larvae at a concentration of 9.22 ng toxin protein/ml. This preparation was used to raise antibodies in sheep and mice. The sandwich ELISA used sheep antitoxin antibody as primary antibody (coating antibody), mouse antitoxin antibody as second antibody, and goat antimouse antibody as an alkaline phosphatase-conjugated detecting antibody. The assay sensitivity was 200 ng/ml for both BsEcAg and binary toxin antigen (BsAg) from Bs 2362 cells. There is a significant correlation between toxin level determined by ELISA and bioassay. This procedure has also been used to monitor toxin levels in batch fermentations of Bs 2362.
