Replication of an entomopoxvirus in two lepidopteran cell lines.


Pseudaletia separata entomopoxvirus replicated in two lepidopteran cell lines, SIE-MSH-805-F and BM-N. Microscopic examination, and the virus passage tests, of infected cultures indicated that the virus replicated more readily in the former cell line. Virus release by exocytosis occurred in both cell lines. A sequence of virus morphogenesis in the cultured… (More)
