Data from: Baculovirus-induced tree-top disease: how extended is the role of egt as a gene for the extended phenotype?

Vera Ros, Stineke Van Houte, Lia Hemerik, Monique M. Van Oers & Vera I. D. Ros
Many parasites alter host behaviour to enhance their chance of transmission. Recently, the ecdysteroid UDP-glucosyl transferase (egt) gene from the baculovirus Lymantria dispar multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (LdMNPV) was identified to induce tree-top disease in L. dispar larvae. Infected gypsy moth larvae died at elevated positions (hence the term tree-top disease), which is thought to promote dissemination of the virus to lower foliage. It is, however, unknown whether egt has a conserved role among baculoviruses in inducing...
