Infection of permissive insect hosts by the baculovirus Autographa californica M nucleopolyhedrovirus results in liquefaction, a pathogenic effect that enhances the dispersal of progeny virions. Two viral gene products-a protease, V-CATH, and a chitinase, chiA-have been shown to be required for liquefaction to occur. It has been generally accepted that the primary functions of these proteins is to degrade the proteinaceous and chitinous components of the host cadaver, respectively. We have… CONTINUE READING
