Abstract

The baculovirus gp67 gene encodes a pH-dependent membrane fusion protein and has been identified in both multinucleocapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV) and MNPV (OpMNPV). We have identified a homologous gene in the spruce budworm virus, MNPV (CfMNPV). The CfMNPV gp67 gene is 79% identical to AcMNPV gp67 at the level of nucleotide sequence and 82% identical at the level of predicted amino acid sequence. As with OpMNPV and AcMNPV gp67, the CfMNPV gp67 protein is found exclusively in the budded virus phenotype of the baculovirus.

The nucleotide sequence data reported in this paper have been submitted to the GenBank database and given the accession number L124120.
