Non-viral 45.5K and 44K polypeptides have been shown to accumulate in virus-infected degenerate cells in the midgut epithelium of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. These polypeptides are detectable first temporally at around 3 days postinfection (pi) and then persistently at around 8 days pi onwards, when day 1 fifth-instar larvae of the silkworm are infected with B. mori densovirus type 2 (BmDNV-2).
