Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) is the type species for the genus Alphabaculovirus in the family Baculoviridae. In nature, AcMNPV infection begins with ingestion of viral occlusion bodies (OBs) from which occlusion-derived viruses (ODV) are released to infect midgut cells. This study explored the early stages of Trichoplusia ni midgut infection using recombinant viruses expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP) and/or a VP39-mCherry fusion protein under the… CONTINUE READING
