Characterization of the open reading frame 7a from Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus


The open reading frame 7a of the Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV orf7a, Bm7a) encodes a predicted polypeptide consisting of 53 amino acid residues. While this polypeptide’s homologues were found in certain baculoviruses, its function has not yet been studied. A protein structural assay revealed that the polypeptide expressed from this gene contained… (More)
