The genome sequence and evolution of baculoviruses.
Comparative analysis of the complete genome sequences of 13 baculoviruses revealed a core set of 30 genes, 20 of which have known functions. Phylogenetic analyses of these 30 genes yielded a treeExpand

Use of Whole Genome Sequence Data To Infer Baculovirus Phylogeny
ABSTRACT Several phylogenetic methods based on whole genome sequence data were evaluated using data from nine complete baculovirus genomes. The utility of three independent character sets wasExpand

The complete sequence of the Cydia pomonella granulovirus genome.
The nucleotide sequence of the DNA genome of Cydia pomonella granulovirus (CpGV) was determined and analysed. The genome is composed of 123500 bp and has a G+C content of 45.2%. It contains 143 ORFsExpand

A defective viral genome maintained in Escherichia coli for the generation of baculovirus expression vectors
A novel baculovirus genome has been generated that can be maintained in Escherichia coli and which facilitates the rapid and efficient generation of recombinant baculovirus expression vectors. ThisExpand

Ancient Coevolution of Baculoviruses and Their Insect Hosts
ABSTRACT If the relationships between baculoviruses and their insect hosts are subject to coevolution, this should lead to long-term evolutionary effects such as the specialization of these pathogensExpand

A baculovirus blocks insect molting by producing ecdysteroid UDP-glucosyl transferase.
The predicted amino acid sequence of a newly identified gene of the insect baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus was similar to several uridine 5'-diphosphateExpand

Persistence of an Occlusion-Negative Recombinant Nucleopolyhedrovirus in Trichoplusia ni Indicates High Multiplicity of Cellular Infection
ABSTRACT We use data from the serial passage of co-occluded recombinantAutographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) to estimate the viral multiplicity of infection of cells withinExpand

Improvement of a Baculovirus Pesticide by Deletion of the EGT Gene
The egt gene of the insect baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) encodes the enzyme ecdysteroid UDP–glucosyltransferase. Expression of egt enables the virus toExpand
