Abstract

The multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (MNPV) protein p74 is associated with the occlusion-derived virus (ODV) envelope. p74 is essential for oral infectivity of ODV and has been proposed to play a role in midgut attachment and/or fusion. In this study, p74 protein was expressed in-frame with green fluorescent protein (GFP) to create a p74–GFP chimera. The C-terminal GFP portion of the chimera facilitated visualization of the trafficking of p74 in baculovirus-infected (-9) cells. p74–GFP chimeric proteins localized in the intranuclear ring zone of the nucleus and were found to co-precipitate with the microvesicle fraction of cell lysates. A series of truncations of p74 was expressed as p74–GFP chimeras in recombinant baculoviruses. When C-terminal region S580–F645 was deleted from p74, p74–GFP chimera localization became non-specific and chimeras became soluble. p74 region S580–F645 directed GFP to the intranuclear ring zone in a similar pattern to full-length p74. The hydrophobic C terminus of p74 plays a role in protein localization and possibly in transmembrane anchoring and insertion.
