Abstract

Viral immediate early gene products are usually regulatory proteins that control expression of other viral genes at the transcriptional level or are proteins that are part of the viral DNA replication complex. The identification and functional characterization of the immediate early gene products of Lymantria dispar nuclear polyhedrosis virus (LdNPV) will further our understanding of viral pathogenesis at the molecular level and may yield insights into a molecular means of enhancing viral potency. In addition, the transcriptional promoters of these genes can be used to drive the expression of foreign genes inserted into the viral genome.
