Baculovirus expression vectors: a laboratory manual.
This laboratory manual simplifies selection of the most appropriate baculovirus vector design for a given problem. It then describes each step of the implementation process - from vector constructionExpand

Regulation of Baculovirus Late and Very Late Gene Expression
The late stage of baculovirus infection is defined as those events that occur following the initiation of viral DNA replication and is usually subdivided into late and very late phases. These phasesExpand

Caenorhabditis elegans CED-4 stimulates CED-3 processing and CED-3-induced
BACKGROUND Programmed cell death or apoptosis is a key feature of normal development, tissue homeostasis and disease progression in metazoans. Genetic studies in the nematode C. elegans haveExpand

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

Alteration of ecdysteroid metabolism due to baculovirus infection of the fall armyworm Spodoptera frugiperda: Host ecdysteroids are conjugated with galactose
The egt gene of the baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus enables the virus to regulate the development of its infected host insect. This gene encodes an enzyme known asExpand

Effects of simultaneous expression of two sodium channel toxin genes on the properties of baculoviruses as biopesticides
Abstract Previously, we have described the properties of recombinant baculoviruses expressing three chimeric genes, mag4, sat2, and ssh1, that encode secretable insect selective sodium channelExpand

Anti- and pro-apoptotic activities of baculovirus and Drosophila IAPs in an insect cell line
The anti-apoptotic activities of two baculovirus IAPs, OpIAP and CpIAP, were directly compared with that of two Drosophila IAPs, DIAP1 and DIAP2, in the same insect cell line, SF-21 cells. Like OpIAPExpand
