Abstract

Sequence analysis of the p10 genes of three nuclear polyhedrosis virus (BmNPV) isolates collected in Taiwan (Ta) and Japan (T3 and D1) showed that all possessed a deletion of an adenine residue, 210 bp downstream from the first base of the initiation codon when compared to the p10 gene of (multinucleocapsid) NPV (AcMNPV). This deletion caused a downstream termination codon to come inframe with the coding sequence of p10, so that the p10 gene of BmNPV encoded a protein of 70 amino acid residues with an of 7700. This is considerably shorter than the 10000 protein encoded by the closely related AcMNPV.
