Disease relevance of egt

  • The ecdysteroid UDP-glucosyltransferase (egt) gene of Mamestra brassicae multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (MbMNPV) has been cloned and characterized [1].
  • Primer extension analysis suggested that the major egt 5' transcription terminus is located within a baculovirus late gene promoter motif (GTAAG), in contrast to the early gene promoter contexts determined by others for three NPV egt mRNA 5' ends [2].
  • Sequence and in vivo transcription of Lacanobia oleracea granulovirus egt [2].
  • Enhanced expression, secretion, and large-scale purification of recombinant HIV-1 gp120 in insect cell using the baculovirus egt and p67 signal peptides [3].

Chemical compound and disease context of egt

  • Database searching revealed that part of a published DNA sequence from Cryptophlebia leucotreta granulovirus appears to encode the N-terminal region of EGT, and the relative genomic locations of the egt and granulin genes in that virus were compared with their positions in LoGV [2].
