Increasing curves of 6.1 and 6.6 kb DNAs of Bombyx mori densonucleosis virus type 2 (BmDNV-2) in the midgut epithelium infected with BmDNV-2 were investigated using a quantitative competitive PCR technique. The 6.1 and 6.6 kb DNAs in midgut epithelium increased logarithmically with time, reaching a maximum titer of 500,000-fold at 48 h since the infection (h postinfection, hpi). The maximum titer was maintained until 102 hpi after reaching the maximum.
