The genomic region of the Anticarsia gemmatalis multiple nucleocapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AgMNPV) strain 2D encoding the polyhedrin gene was cloned and mapped, and a 2085 bp SphI-PstI fragment containing the gene was sequenced. The polyhedrin polypeptide of the parental isolate AgMNPV was manually sequenced, and the amino acid sequence obtained(More)
