C vestalis proteins involved in haemocyte disruption

A recombinant CvBV lectin was shown to reduce the association between bacteria and non-parasitized Plutella xylostella haemocytes suggesting that this secreted protein acts by disrupting haemocyte recognition of pathogens (Lee et al., 2008). In contrast, CvBVH4, a viral histone, and CvBV15b, induce impaired spreading behaviour in haemocytes, and act intracellularly by uncharacterized mechanisms. These may involve inhibition of host gene expression and translation (Nalini and Kim, 2007; Gad and Kim, 2008).
