Regulation of expression of three genes in the polyhedron
envelope protein (PEP) gene region of the Orgyia pseudotsugata
multinucleocapsid nuclear polyhedrosis virus (OpMNPV) was
examined. These genes include open reading frame (ORF) 1 (encoding
p21), ORF 2 (encoding gp16), and ORF 3 (encoding the polyhedron
envelope protein). The effect of...
We investigated the root endophytic fungi of lupine using
four approaches: (1) occurrence of fungal colonization in field-collected
roots; (2) growth response of L. latifolius to inoculation
with two types of fungi; (3) structure of root colonizations of
Pinus and Lupinus by Phialocephala fortinii, a septate endophytic
fungus of lupine;...
