Promoter influence on baculovirus-mediated gene expression in permissive and nonpermissive insect cell lines.

The activities of viral and insect promoters were examined in a range of insect cell lines permissive and nonpermissive for the replication of the baculovirus Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus. Recombinant baculoviruses were constructed to place the bacterial chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene under the control of promoters strongly… (More)
