Abstract

A putative non- origin of DNA replication was identified in the multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (SpliNPV) genome by transient replication assays. The putative SpliNPV was mapped to the I-J fragment between 75·1–77·9 map units in the SpliNPV genome. While the DNA sequence of the putative SpliNPV aligned with regions within the non-s of , and multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedroviruses, it has limited DNA sequence identity with these elements. The sequence of the putative SpliNPV non- fragment contains a unique distribution of imperfect palindromes, multiple direct repeats and putative transcription factor-binding sites. Transient expression assays indicated that the putative SpliNPV fragment repressed SpliNPV promoter-mediated luciferase reporter gene expression. However, the putative SpliNPV fragment itself was capable of directing luciferase expression in the absence of a recognizable baculovirus promoter element in an orientation-independent fashion, suggesting that DNA sequence motifs within its sequence can activate transcription. Gel mobility shift analyses confirmed that proteins within nuclear extracts from both uninfected and virus-infected cells bound with specificity to the putative SpliNPV fragment.
