Hi
   I have a doubt which I think is a bit silly.  But I could not get an
answer for this anywhere.  The active toxin produced by Bacillus
thuringiensis is called delta-endotoxin. What is the meaning of the greek
alphabet "delta" and its significance for the toxin.
    I have been working on this toxin for the past few years and never
thought of this till somebody asked me this yesterday.
    Thanking you in advance
sincerley
