Cotesia congregata polydnavirus (CcPDV) is essential for successful parasitism of Manduca sexta larvae by the braconid wasp Cotesia congregata. To determine the molecular mechanisms for the vertical transmission of CcPDV in the wasps, we analysed the different forms of the virus sequences containing the gene encoding the early parasitism-specific protein 1 (EP1). By a detailed molecular analysis, we demonstrated that the EP1 sequences are present in wasp DNA in two forms: a circular form as… CONTINUE READING
