Abstract: Regulatory elements interacting with DNA-binding proteins have been investigated in the promoter sequence of the early PE38 gene in the Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (AcNPV). A GATA motif located 50 nucleotides upstream of the PE38 transcriptional start site is recognized differentially in the course of infection. As demonstrated by footprint and gel mobility shift assays, the GATA sequences TTATCT are protected by nuclear extracts from uninfected Spodoptera frugiperda cells and from S. fru…
