Title: The Lymantria dispar nucleopolyhedrovirus contains the capsid-associated p24 protein gene

Author: Slavicek, James M.; Hayes-Plazolles, Nancy;

Date: 2003

Source: Virus genes. 26(1): 15-18.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: During the course of investigations on a wild-type strain of Lymantria dispar multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (LdMNPV), a region of the viral genome was analyzed and found to contain 697 bp that is lacking in the sequenced strain (5-6) of LdMNPV (Kuzio et al., Virology 253, 17-34, 1999). The sequenced strain of LdMNPV contains a mutation in the 25 K few polyhedra (FP) gene, and exhibits the phenotype of a FP mutant. The additional sequence was located at approximately 81.4 map units within the viral genome, and was found in 10 different wild-type LdMNPV genotypic variants analyzed. Since the additional sequence was found in all wild- type virus strains analyzed, this sequence should be included in the representative LdMNPV genome. Sequence analysis of the genomic region containing the additional sequences revealed the presence of a homologue of the Autographa californica MNPV capsid-associated p24 gene (OW 129).

Keywords: Autographa californica nucleopolyhedrovirus, baculovirus, capsid-ssociated p24 gene, Lymantria dispar, Lymantria dispar multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus
