Abstract

SUMMARY

The virus isolated from the black beetle, , is an icosahedral ribovirus with a diam. of 30 nm and contains one major structural polypeptide of mol. wt. 40000. The virus can be grown in cells and also titred in this line using a plaque assay method. Infected cells pulsed with S-methionine in the presence of actinomycin D induced three virus polypeptides of mol. wt. 110000, 40000 and 8000. Short pulses, chases with excess non-radioactive methionine and pre-pulse treatments with protease inhibitors failed to demonstrate processing of virus-induced polypeptides.
