Characterization of productive and nonproductive AcMNPV Infection in selected insect cell lines.
In experiments with a baculovirus called PxMNPVCL3, which McIntosh recently discovered in samples from infected diamondback moth caterpillars (Plutella xylostella), the caterpillars' infection levels were up to 2,000 times greater than rates of infection in caterpillars exposed to either AcMNPV or to another baculovirus discovered by BCIRL scientists.
For the past 2 years, American Cyanamid scientists have been field-testing an AcMNPV from which they had deleted a gene that prevents infected insects from molting and pupating.
Using the same baculovirus, AcMNPV, they remove the polyhedrin gene, which forms a protective coat around viral particles.
Commonly abbreviated AcMNPV, the virus occurs in crystalline cases that the alfalfa looper, A.
"Polyhedrons seen through a microscope," says AcMNPV discoverer Patrick V.
