An in vitro host-range model system, designated System II, was developed for the multicapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus Spodoptera frugiperda (SF-MNPV). This system consisted of SF-MNPV-infected S. frugiperda cells (permissive system) and SF-MNPV-infected Trichoplusia ni cells (semipermissive system). Infection kinetic studies revealed that while progeny virus was produced in the semipermissive system, the infectious virus yield was at least 700-fold lower than that in positive controls… CONTINUE READING
