The phylogenetic relationships of inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) from insects and insect viruses were reconstructed and compared with the phylogeny of the viruses reconstructed on the basis of DNA polymerase species. The phylogeny supported the hypothesis that there were three IAP genes in the ancestor of the viral genus Nucleopolyhedrovirus (family Baculoviridae), but that there has been differential deletion of IAP genes in different lineages within this genus. An IAP gene from the granulovirus… CONTINUE READING
