Table 4 Potency of interaction between of gamma irradiation and LC50 of the entomopathogenic fungi, Beauveria bassiana and Paecilomyces lilacinus against Galleria Mellonella larvae descending from the irradiated parental males

From: Effect of gamma irradiation and/or certain entomopathogenic fungi on the larval Mortality of Galleria mellonella L

Radiation doses (Gy) Fungi Observed % mortality* Expected % mortality** Co-toxicity factor Joint effect type
Control 08 ± 3.75
70 Gy B. bassiana 58 ± 2.00 78.3 − 25.9 Antagonism
P. lilacinus 50 ± 3.75 68.3 − 26.8 Antagonism
100 Gy B. bassiana 70 ± 3.17 82.3 − 14.9 Additive
P. lilacinus 62 ± 2.00 72.3 − 14.2 Additive
125 Gy B. bassiana 78 ± 2.00 88.3 − 11.7 Additive
P. lilacinus 72 ± 2.00 78.3 − 8.0 Additive
  1. *The observed mortality for the mixture of two treatments was the percentage of the mortalities of each combination
  2. **The expected mortality was summited for each treatment in the mixture in every test by treating larvae by each one alone
