Entomopoxvirus virions are frequently contained within crystalline occlusion bodies, which are composed of primarily a single protein, spheroidin, which is analogous to the polyhedrin protein of baculovirus. The spheroidin gene of Amsacta moorei entomopoxvirus was identified following the microsequencing of polypeptides generated from cyanogen bromide treatment of spheroidin and the subsequent synthesis of oligonucleotide hybridization probes. DNA sequencing of a 6.8-kb region of DNA containing… CONTINUE READING
