Characterization of DNA from three nuclear polyhedrosis viruses pathogenic for Choristoneura sp


, : Characterization of DNA from three nuclear polyhedrosis viruses pathogenic for Choristoneura sp. Journal of Invertebrate Pathology 40(2): 237-241

Three nuclear polyhedrosis viruses originally isolated from the tortricids Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), C. murinana (Hb.) and C. occidentalis Freeman and cultured in larvae of C. occidentalis were found to have polyhedrins of 28 000-30 000 daltons, genome sizes of 78X106 - 82X106 daltons and guanine plus cytosine contents of 47.9-49.4%.

The DNA sequence homology between the genomes of Choristoneura fumiferana and Autographa californica multicapsid nuclear polyhedrosis viruses (CfMNPV and AcMNPV) were compared by hybridization of nick-translated [32P]CfMNP[V DNA to restricted AcMN...

The baculovirus gp67 gene encodes a pH-dependent membrane fusion protein and has been identified in both Autographa californica multinucleocapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) and Orygia pseudotsugata MNPV (OpMNPV). We have identified a homo...

Polypeptide p74 has been found to be essential for production of virulent occlusion bodies of the baculovirus Autographa californica multicapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV). Hybridization with AcMNPV-derived probes has led to the location...

Artificial infection experiments in the laboratory showed that cytoplasmic polyhedrosis viruses (CPV) are, in general, more infectious to Choristoneura fumiferana and Malacosoma disstria than the nuclear polyhedrosis viruses (NPV). The CPV interfe...

The DNA sequence and transcription pattern of the p10 gene from the spruce budworm baculovirus Choristoneura fumiferana multicapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (CfMNPV) were analysed. The CfMNPV p10 gene codes for a protein 81 amino acids in length...
