Adoxophyes orana nucleopolyhedrovirus (AdorNPV) was isolated from overwintering larvae from an orchard in the UK. The nucleotide sequence of the AdorNPV DNA genome was determined and analysed. The genome contains 111724 bp and has a G+C content of 35.0 mol%. The analysis predicted 121 ORFs of 150 nt or larger. Of these putative genes, 118 were homologous to genes identified previously in the Adoxophyes honmai nucleopolyhedrovirus (AdhoNPV) genome (83.3-100 % aa identity), and three AdorNPV ORFs… CONTINUE READING
