We have constructed a baculovirus expression vector based on Malacosoma neustria nuclear polyhedrosis virus (MnNPV). The vector showed itself as an effective tool for the expression of foreign gene. Presented here is the complete nucleotide sequence of MnNPV polyhedrin gene which is used for the insertion of genes to be expressed.
