The studies on the envelope fusion protein provide information on how retroviruses likely evolved from non infectious transposable elements to infectious viruses. Gammabaculovirus and Deltabaculovirus are referenced by Greek letters. According to this, a phylogenetic study was performed based on concatemers obtained from multiple alignments of the 31 proteins recognized in this work as core genes for the 57 available baculoviruses with sequenced genomes Figure 4.

The predicted Env protein of insect retroviruses errantiviruses is related to the envelope fusion protein of a major division of the Baculoviridae. From these results we concluded that the gene products encoded from these open reading frames are essential for virus production and may be involved in DNA processing, packaging, or nucleocapsid morphogenesis.

A detailed analysis of DNA content did not show a clear pattern of GC content that could be associated with each genus. Whole baculovirus gene content. This has led to the investigations of two previously uncharacterized viruses; one of alpacas and the other pathogenic for rabbits.


Published by Beryl Watkins Modified over 2 years ago. The possibility that nonshared genes found only in one genus which represent baculovirus ancestral sequences deleted in the other lineages should also be considered. In contrast, other genes are unique to each genus, suggesting that they have been incorporated more recently and after diversification Table 3.

To our knowledge, the most important fact is that this report is the first work which identifies the whole baculovirus gene content and the shared genes that are unique in different genera and subgenera. We characterized the role of these proteins in baculovirus biology by deleting their genes from the viral genome and then characterizing the effects of the deletions mokecular virus replication. Our current evidence suggests that alkaline nuclease is involved in recombination-dependent replication and is required for the production of full length genomes.

This is accomplished by generating the virus baculovirue transfection of the bacmid into insect cells and then doing growth curves with the virus and comparing it to wt virus. We are in the process of surveying cells used for baculovirus-expressed vaccine production moldcular the presence of retroviruses sequences. In this project we will biochemically characterize the properties of DBP. And finally, OBs are produced during the last stage of the infection.

We determined that the alpaca virus is a coronavirus that is closely related to a number of bovine coronaviruses. Review Baculovirus diversity and molecular biology.


Functional analysis of a conserved region of the baculovirus envelope fusion protein, LD Javier Garavaglia both contributed equally to this work. This technology allowed us to make lethal mutations to the viral genome in the context of a BAC mokecular then investigate the effects of these mutations by transfecting the bacmid DNA into insect cells.

We are also investigating the presence of these viruses in cell lines used for human vaccine production.

These OBs comprise virions embedded in a protein matrix which protects them from the environment [ 56 ]. In view of this, many researchers have proposed and used different bioinformatic methodologies to identify genes as well as related baculoviruses. The valuable applications of these viruses in several fields of life sciences encourage their constant study with the goal of understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the generation of progeny in the appropriate cells as well as the processes by which they evolve.

Our research provides fundamental data on how the virus is capable of replicating its DNA and how its DNA is able to recombine during the infection cycle. The analysis shows that Group I alphabaculoviruses and gammabaculoviruses have a lower diversity of gene content with respect to the rest of lineages.
