Abstract

Two Lymantria dispar nuclear polyhedrosis virus isolates, 5-6 and A2-1, differing in the phenotypic characteristic of the number of viral occlusions in infected cells, were obtained from a production lot of the microbial pesticide Gypchek and several of their replication properties were investigated and compared. Budded virus titer produced in cell culture, polyhedral inclusion body production in cell culture and in vivo, the number of virions present within occlusion body cross sections, and potency determinations suggest that isolate 5-6 is a few polyhedra plaque variant and that A2-1 is a many polyhedra wild-type isolate.
