  • Ascoviruses are members of a recently described new family (Ascoviridae) of large double-stranded DNA viruses that attack immature stages of insects belonging to the order Lepidoptera, in which they cause a chronic, fatal disease. Ascoviruses have several unusual characteristics not found among other viruses, the most novel of which are their transmission by endoparasitic wasps and a unique cytopathology that resembles apoptosis. Cell infection induces apoptosis and in some species is… CONTINUE READING
