The Melolontha melolontha entomopoxvirus (MmEPV) fusolin is related to the fusolins of lepidopteran EPVs and to the 37K baculovirus glycoprotein.
A 1.7-kbp DNA fragment of the MmEPV genome encompassing the major polypeptide of the spindle-shaped inclusions gene termed fusolin showed significant homologies with the fusolins of two lepidopteran EPVs and also with the 37K glycoproteins of Autographa californica and Orgyia pseudotsugata baculoviruses.

Cloning and sequencing of the spherulin gene, the occlusion body major polypeptide of the Melolontha melolontha entomopoxvirus (MmEPV).
The MmEPV spherulin showed more than 40% as homology with the Amsacta moorei EPV spheroidin and shared homologies with the partially sequenced Choristoneura biennis EPV (CbEPV), indicating that this biologically important polypeptide is well conserved among EPVs infecting phylogenetically as distant groups of insects as lepidoptera and coleoptera.

Restriction maps and sequence homologies of two densovirus genomes.
Mapping at the extremities of both genomes confirmed the presence of inverted terminal repeats of at least 420 to 440 bases in length and extensive DNA sequence homologies spanning the entire length of the two genomes. Expand
A comparison of buoyant density and polypeptides of Drosophila P, C and A viruses.
On the basis of their buoyant densities in CsCl and their capsid polypeptides, three viruses isolated from Drosophila spp. which were originally described as serotypes, are now classified as distinctExpand
Protein requirements for assembly of virus-like particles of Junonia coenia densovirus in insect cells.
The coding sequences of four overlapping polypeptides starting at four different in-frame AUG codons and co-terminating at the stop codon of the cap gene of Junonia coenia densovirus (JcDNV) wereExpand
Drosophila S virus is a member of the Reoviridae family
The purification and analysis of some properties of DSV particles, the morphology (spherical, 60 nm in diameter with an electron dense central core and less dense shell) and genome composition (double-stranded RNA divided into segments), which classify DSV as a new member of the family Reoviridae are reported.
