Abstract There is considerable interest in the possibility of using insect hormones or hormone regulatory proteins in conjunction with microbial delivery systems as a means of controlling insect pests. We have employed Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) to express a Manduca sexta (L.) cDNA encoding eclosion hormone (EH) to explore the effects this hormone might have during infection in larvae. AcMNPV naturally blocks molting of its insect host by expression of an… Expand
