Table 3 The median lethal times (LT50s) of the fungal strains Bb-AaIT and WT against Aedes albopictus (larval or female adult mosquitoes) at middle and high concentrations in assays 1–3

From: Scorpion neurotoxin AaIT-expressing Beauveria bassiana enhances the virulence against Aedes albopictus mosquitoes

Concentrations (conidial ml−1) Assay 1 (LT50, days) Assay 2 (LT50, days) Assay 3 (LT50, days)
1 × 107 (High) 1 × 106 (Middle) 1 × 107 (High) 1 × 106 (Middle)* 1 × 108 (High) 1 × 107 (Middle)*
Bb-AaIT 4.4 5.5 4.2 8.8 4.7 7.5
WT 6.7 7.7 6.2 9.9 6.2 9.8
  1. * The difference of LT50 for two strains is not significant
