A reovirus was isolated from Operophtera brumata (ObRV) and its parasitoid wasp Phobocampe tempestiva. Each of the 10 dsRNA genome segments of ObRV was sequenced and shown to contain a single open reading frame (ORF). Conserved motifs ([+ve] 5'-AAATAAA ...(G)/(T)AGGTT-3') were found at the termini of each segment, with the exception of Seg-6 and Seg-8, where the 5' termini were 5'-AACAAA...-3'. The putative proteins encoded by each segment were compared with those of other members of the family… CONTINUE READING
