Abstract

An RNA virus was isolated from Trichoplusia ni larvae infected with inoculum of the baculovirus of Autographa californica. Physicochemical characterization has revealed a 35-nm virus with a density in CsCl of 1.3 g/cm3 and a sedimentation coefficient of 200S. The virus consisted of 10-15% single-stranded RNA with an apparent molecular weight of 1.9x106 and coat protein with a subunit size of 67,000. The virus is similar to the Nudaurelia capensis β virus and also possesses some interesting similarities to the mammalian caliciviruses. The proposed cryptogram of the virus is R/1:1.9/12:S/S:I/O.
