A 6.4 kb region from the multicapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (LdMNPV) genome was sequenced and found to contain open reading frames (ORFs) homologous to the polyhedron envelope (PE) protein coding sequence, and the C-terminal half of ORF 1, which is a gene located upstream of the PE protein gene in other baculoviruses. The proteins predicted from the LdMNPV genes encoding the PE protein, and ORF 1 demonstrated 27 and 34% amino acid sequence identity, respectively, with the corresponding genes in the multicapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus.
