Abstract

SUMMARY: Entomopathogenic bacteria of the genus produce crystalline inclusion bodies during culture. When cultured in liquid media, inclusions were present in primary forms but not secondary forms of . In contrast, both primary and secondary forms of produced inclusion bodies during liquid culture. Two morphologically distinct forms of inclusion bodies were found in subsp. strain All. They were proteinaceous, and one of the proteins (IP-1) was present in seven strains of subsp. , but not in strains of subsp. subsp. subsp. or . This protein may be useful as a taxonomic indicator. Plasmids were isolated from seven of ten strains of . They varied in size from 12 to 3·6 kb, and were present in both primary and secondary forms of subsp. and subsp. .
