Abstract

SUMMARY

The DNA of a multiply-enveloped nuclear polyhedrosis virus (MNPV) of the cabbage moth (), isolated from the beet armyworm , was analysed using restriction endonucleases I, HI, II and I. The size of the viral DNA was calculated to be about 152 kilobase pairs. Mapping of restriction sites on the DNA was accomplished by hybridization of P-labelled DNA fragments to single and double digests of the MNPV genome. Mapping of the putative polyhedrin gene was used to orient the physical map. The relevance of this map to the structural organization of the DNA of MNPV isolated from different geographical areas is discussed.
