Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
IPD072Aa
EN
Pseudomonas chlororaphis IPD072Aa demonstrates selective insecticidal activity against coleoptera species, such as Diabrotica virgifera, while not effecting lepidopteran and hemipteran species. The protein acts by disrupting of the midgut epithelium by causing cells to swell and burst. The mechanism has yet to be elucidated, but it may not be through pore formation.

IPD072Aa is 86 amino acids in length and has a molecular weight of approximately 10 kDa.
