Polydnaviruses (PDVs) are segmented, symbiotic, double-stranded DNA viruses that are vertically transmitted as proviruses within the genomes of some parasitoid Hymenoptera. The PDV associated with the ichneumonid wasp Campoletis sonorensis (CsIV) consists of 24 non-redundant DNA segments varying in size from approximately 6 to 20 kbp. CsIV segment B, one of the smallest genome segments, was sequenced and the excision sites of the proviral segment were characterized. The segment B sequence was… CONTINUE READING
