Abstract

SUMMARY

The virus particles from four closely related insect nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPVs) isolated from their homologous spp. hosts were examined using an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), employing both swine anti-rabbit and protein A conjugate. Results from both systems indicated that NPV is serologically distinct from the other three viruses, NPV, NPV and NPV, which are closely related. The relatedness of these viruses is discussed with reference to existing knowledge and the results obtained from both conjugate systems.
