In this first proteomic analysis of an invertebrate iridovirus. 46 viral proteins were detected in the mons of Chilo indescent virus (CIV) based on the detection of 2 or more distinct peptides; an additional 8 proteins were found based on a single peptide Thirty-six of the 54 identified proteins have homologs in another invertebrate and/or in one or more vertebrate indoviruses The genes for 5 of the identified proteins, 22L (putative helicase). 118L, 142R (putative RNaseIII). 274L (major capsid protein) and 2951, are shared by all indoviruses for which the complete nucleotide sequence is known and may therefore be considered as indovirus core genes Three identified proteins have homologs only in ascoviruses The remaining 15 identified proteins are so far unique to CIV In addition to bioadening our insight in the structure and assembly of CIV vinons, this knowledge is pivotal to unravel the initial steps in the infection process (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc.
