The Perina nuda nucleopolyhedrovirus (PenuNPV) polyhedrin gene was located in EcoRI-G (6.3 kilobase pairs; kbp) and PstI-G (4.3 kbp) fragments of its genomic DNA. A portion of 1333 nucleotides (nt) containing this gene was sequenced. An open reading frame of 735 nt encoded a 245-amino-acid-long polyhedrin. A conserved TAAG motif which is associated with transcriptional start sites was identified 51 nt upstream of the translation initiation codon of PenuNPV polyhedrin gene. A putative… CONTINUE READING
