SMALL RNAS IN Bombyx mori NUCLEAR?POLYHEDROSIS VIRUS POLYHEDRA FORM COMPLEXES
WITH POLYPEPTIDE p14 AND?POLYHEDRIN
Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv;
It was shown that two small RNAs about 65 and 55 nucleotides long included in NPV B. mori polyhedra form with polypeptides p29 and p14 specific RNP-complexes with molecular weights of 50 and 31 kDa, respectively. Both complexes form high-molecular weight complex with polyhedrin. Origin and nature of р29 and р14 polypeptides are discussed.
Key words: nuclear polyhedrosis virus, Bombyx mori, polyhedrin, small RNA, RNP-complex.
