Baculovirus, Spodoptera litura granulovirus (SlGV) was isolated from the infected S. litura larvae, and was characterized. The granule of SlGV was ovoidal shape with an approximate size of 240∼340 nm× 140∼180 nm. Each granule contained one single rod-shape virion with a mean size of 180∼200 nm×20∼40 nm. Restriction endonuclease fragment analysis estimated that the total genome size of SlGV is about 115 kb. Necleotide sequence analysis of the granulin gene showed that the gene encodes 249 amino… CONTINUE READING
