Virion-free plasma from entomopoxvirus (MyseEPV)-infected larvae of the armyworm, Mythimna separata, contains a factor that adversely affects the survival of the gregarious braconid endoparasitoid, Cotesia kariyai. Heating or proteinase K treatment eliminates the toxic effect of virion-free plasma on the parasitoid, suggesting that the lethal factor is a… CONTINUE READING
