 The Cotesia rubecula polydnavirus gene, CrV1, is expressed in a highly transient fashion. Within four hours after egg deposition and virus infection, tissues of the host caterpillar, Pieris rapae, express high levels of the transcript. Twelve hours after infection no transcripts are visible. We have previously shown that the CrV1 secreted protein is mainly produced in host haemocytes. In haemocytes, immune functions such as phagocytosis and cell spreading are abolished by destabilization of… CONTINUE READING
