Nucleotide sequence of a 1446 base pair SalI fragment and structure of a novel early gene of Leucania separata nuclear polyhedrosis virus.

A 1446 bp SalI fragment of LsNPV was sequenced by the silver staining method, and two large open reading frames (ORFs, ORF1 and ORF2) were found, both contain typical characteristics of the 5' regulatory elements of baculovirus early genes. ORF1 is 345 bp long with the capacity to encode a putative protein of 114 amino acid residues with MW about 13 kDa and was designated p13 gene, ORF2 comprises 248 bp from the 3' end of the fragment. In the untranslated region (UTR) of ORF1, a 33 bp mini cistron (ORF3), a core recognition sequence (CGTCG) for many bHLHzip transcription factors and a late promoter sequence TTAAG are present. In the UTR of ORF2, two host transcription factor binding elements (CACGTG and GATA motif) and two CGT motifs were found. Some regular leucine zipper-like structures, designated leucine trans-conformation structure and LVT repeat, were found near the N-terminus and the middle of p13 protein. The leucine trans-conformation structure that is near the N-terminus consists of 4 leucines and 7 other amino acids between every two leucines, and every leucine is located at a conformation shift point of the predicted secondary structure of the p13 protein. In LVT repeat, L-6aa-V-6aa-T-6aa is repeated once. The functions of those structures remain unclear, and the two ORFs, not found in the genome of Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus, are possibly two new genes.[1]
