MOUSTICIDE™ is a biolarvicide that is, amongst other things, composed of heat inactivated Pichia pastoris KM71H strain transformed with pPICZ B plasmid containing gene sequences for expression of the Trypsin Modulating Oostatic Factor (TMOF) peptide.

Exposure of mosquito larvae to the TMOF peptide results in suppression of  larval growth and development.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.
Pichia pastoris - Yeast, PICPA
