The baculovirus gene, protein kinase-I (pk-1) encodes a serine/threonine kinase that is essential for very late gene expression. Late and very late genes of the baculoviruses are transcribed by an alpha-amanitin resistant RNA polymerase. The very late gene promoter transcription initiation complex was isolated from nuclei of Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV)-infected Sf9 cells by DNA affinity purification and found to contain 4 major polypeptides of sizes… CONTINUE READING
