Short name: AcMNPV_Orf78

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This entry is represented by Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV), AC78 or Orf78. AC78 is a late gene in the viral life cycle and encodes an envelope structural protein that plays an essential role in embedding the occlusion-derived virus (ODV) in the occlusion body [PMID: 23698311]. Although AC78 is not essential for budding virus formation or nucleocapsid assembly and ODV formation, number are significantly reduced if the gene is knocked-out [PMID: 25087880].
