Functional analysis of a conserved region of the baculovirus envelope fusion protein, LD In Group II alphabaculoviruses, a clear clustering may not be identified and would not allow to suggest a subdivision.

The rabbit virus is a member of the herpesviridae and is a member of a primate lineage of these viruses. The research on veterinary pathogens is important in preventing the losses caused by these viruses in farm animals. In this project we will biochemically characterize the properties of DBP. Probably, many of these sequences have been incorporated into viral genomes prior to diversification processes since they are found in members of different genera. The high variability observed in the number of coding sequences becomes a key feature of viruses with large DNA genomes that infect eukaryotic cells [ 18 ].

Therefore, they have found applications in a variety areas such as human and animal vaccine development, production of therapeutic agents, and for fundamental biomedical research. This proved that the endonuclease is an intrinsic activity of baculovirus AN.

The obtained cladogram reproduces the current baculovirus classification based on 4 genera. Rohrmann These figures are freely available for non commercial use: 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.


To characterize DBP, we expressed it as an N-terminal His6-tag fusion using a recombinant baculovirus and purified it to near homogeneity.

One of the major methods that we use as a basis for characterization of the biochemical properties of proteins is to overexpress them in recombinant baculoviruses. Baculoviruses are widely used as expression vectors for the production of proteins for biomedical research. The highest degree of homology is found in a region that contains a baculovirud cleavage site in the baculovirus proteins and an adjacent sequence that has the properties of a fusion peptide.

The progeny generation is biphasic, with two different phenotypes during bacuolvirus infection: The analysis shows that Group I alphabaculoviruses and gammabaculoviruses have a lower mooecular of gene content with respect to the rest of lineages. 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. This has led to the investigations of two previously uncharacterized viruses; one of alpacas and the other pathogenic for rabbits.

These groupings result in accordance with previous reports [ 20].

Baculovirus Molecular Biology [Internet].

Investigations on genome replication and processing. Topics including taxonomy, the application of baculoviruses as insecticides, the molecular basis for the remarkable ability of these viruses to express genes at high levels, and the interrelationships of baculovirus and transposable elements are also covered.

The effects of the deletion of the genes can then be tested by transfecting the baculovirus genome into insect cells. Characterization of a baculovirus with a deletion of vlf The studies on the envelope fusion protein provide information on how retroviruses likely evolved from non-infectious transposable elements to infectious viruses.


Baculovirus: Molecular Insights on Their Diversity and Conservation

We are in the process of surveying cells used for baculovirus-expressed vaccine production for the presence of retroviruses sequences. BMC Evolutionary Biology, 1, 1. We have characterized a protein called very late expression factor -1 vlf-1 and demonstrated that it is capable of binding to cruciform structures suggesting bafulovirus it may be involved in the resolution of structures generated during DNA replication.

Overexpression, purification, and characterization of proteins. This is the third edition of a book that was initiated with the annotation of the function of all the genes in the most commonly studied baculovirus, AcMNPV. This analysis shows that the four accepted baculovirus genera have accumulated a large number of genes during evolution.

Conserved molecular systems of the Baculoviridae. One of the major advances in investigations of baculovirus molecular biology has been the development of the use of baculovirus genomes bacilovirus into bacterial artificial chromosomes. Support Center Support Center. As a result, P6.

Proteins that bind DNA can be analyzed by electrophoretic mobility shift assays. BMC Molecular Biology 3: Characterization of a baculovirus encoded protein that is associated with infected-cell membranes and budded virions.

In addition, FIGE analysis of partially digested DNA from wt virus infected cells failed to detect viral DNA in the form of multiples of unit length suggesting that long concatemers are not synthesized.
