Abstract

The genomes of densonucleosis virus (DNV) and densonucleosis virus (DNV) were analysed by restriction endonuclease analysis and Southern blot hybridization. A total of 37 and 33 restriction sites were mapped on DNV and DNV DNA, respectively. I, II and EII were site-specific for DNV DNA, and II and I for DNV DNA. The two genomes had nearly identical maps for several restriction endonucleases and Southern blot hybridization using a total genomic DNVprobe indicated extensive DNA sequence homologies spanning the entire length of the two genomes. Symmetrical cleavage sites, mapping at the extremities of both genomes, confirmed the presence of inverted terminal repeats of at least 420 to 440 bases in length.
