Abstract

The complete nucleotide sequence of single-nucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (HzSNPV) has been determined (130869 bp) and compared to the nucleotide sequence of (Ha) SNPV. These two genomes are very similar in their nucleotide (97% identity) and amino acid (99% identity) sequences. The coding regions are much more conserved than the non-coding regions. In HzSNPV/HaSNPV, the 63 open reading frames (ORFs) present in all baculoviruses sequenced so far are much more conserved than other ORFs. HzSNPV has four additional small ORFs compared with HaSNPV, one of these (Hz42) being in a correct transcriptional context. The major differences between HzSNPV and HaSNPV are found in the sequence and organization of the homologous regions (s) and the baculovirus repeat ORFs ( genes). The sequence identity between the HzSNPV and HaSNPV s ranges from 90% () to almost 100% () and the s differ in the presence/absence of one or more type A and/or B repeats. The three HzSNPV genes differ significantly from those in HaSNPV and may have been acquired independently in the ancestral past. The sequence data suggest strongly that HzSNPV and HaSNPV are variants of the same virus species, a conclusion that is supported by the physical and biological data.
