Lethal concentrations and resistance ratio for the LiTOX and susceptible strains forBtiand Cry toxins
Toxins Strain LC50in ng/mL (95% CI) RR50
Cry4Aa Susceptible 646.28 (514.20–826.93) /
LiTOX 43873.12 (28396.11–78207.31) 67.9 fold

LiTOX 2922.26 (1924.95–4168.76) 9.1 fold
Cry11Aa Susceptible 156.14 (112.86–219.46) /
LiTOX 1434.81 (1146.52–1774.22) 9.2 fold
Bti Vectobac WG Susceptible 90.6 (79.89–101.12) /
LiTOX 312.6 (277.27–359.49) 3.5 fold

Lethal concentrations 50% (LC50) of the resistant (LiTOX) and the susceptible strain for the three Cry toxins (Cry4Aa, Cry4Ba and Cry11Aa) and for the commercialBtiat 24 h. Resistance ratios 50 (RR50) are calculated for each product as LC50of LiTOX divided by LC50of Bora- Bora strain. LC50are expressed in ng/mL.
