the properties of two recent isolates of cytoplasmic polyhedrosis viruses.cytoplasmic polyhedrosis viruses (cpvs) were isolated from laboratory cultures of bombyx mori and spodoptera exempta. the electrophoretic profile of the rna segments of both viruses showed similarities with that of type 1 cpv. however, whereas the virus isolate from b. mori appeared identical to type 1 cpv (as assessed by serology, as well as the comparative mobilities of rna segments and structural polypeptides), the isolate from s. exempta was distinct. three of the ten viral rna segments did ...1977323189
"pretranscriptional capping" in the biosynthesis of cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus mrna.the in vitro synthesis of cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (cpv) mrna was previously shown to be dependent upon the presence of the methyl donor s-adenosylmethionine (adomet). we now find that the competitive inhibitor of methylation, s-adenosylhomocysteine (adohcy), also stimulates cpv mrna synthesis efficiently, resulting in the synthesis of viral mrnas containing 5'-terminal gpppa and ppa, rather than m(7)gpppam as observed with adomet. in addition to adohcy, other adomet analogues, including s ...1978349555
the multicomponent genome of a different cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus isolated from heliothis armigera.the genome of a new cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (cpv) isolated from heliothis armigera has been shown to consist of 10 double-stranded rna segments, as in other cpvs, but the genome profile on page bears no resemblance to previously described cpvs isolated from h.armigera.1978361635
