Description: In previous studies on the formation of Lymantria dispar nuclear polyhedrosis virus (LdMNPV) few polyhedra (FP) mutants, several polyhedron formation mutants (PFM) were identified that appeared to be unique. These viral mutants are being characterized to investigate the processes of polyhedron formation and virion occlusion. LdMNPV isolate PFM-1 is one of these mutants, and is described in this report. Genetic techniques were used to determine if isolate PFM-1 contained a mutation in the polyhedrin or 25K FP gene.
Keywords: baculovirus, Lymantria dispar MNPV, polyhedron, polyhedron mutant, viral occlusion, Lymantria dispar
