The peritrophic matrix (PM) in lepidopterous larvae may function as a defensive barrier against ingested viral pathogens. PMs isolated from Trichoplusia ni and Pseudaletia unipuncta larvae, were treated with a baculovirus-encoded metalloprotease (enhancin) from Trichoplusia ni granulosis virus (TnGV) and their in vitro permeability to blue dextran and fluorescent-labelled Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) was determined using a dual chamber permeability apparatus… CONTINUE READING
