Question: Name a genus of baculovirus. Why they are considered good biocontrol agents?
Nucleopolyhedrovirus. Being species specific selective and narrow spectrum biocontrol agents, these viruses do not exert any harmful impact on crops, animals and human and non target insects. For example, Nucleopolyhedrovirus targets mainly moths and butterflies.
Question: A single pea plant in your kitchen garden produces pods with viable seeds, but individual papaya plant does not. Explain.
Pea plant is a dioecious plant and produce bisexual flowers bearing both stamen and pistel on the same flower. Therefore, self fertilization between pollen and ovule of same flowers produce viable seeds. Papaya is a monoecious plant and produce unisexual flowers which in turn facilitate only cross fertilization. Hence, single papaya plant cannot produce viable seeds.
Question: Retroviruses have no DNA. However, the DNA of the infected host cell does possess viral DNA. How is it possible?
Genome or retrovirus possesses RNA genome that can replicates to form viral DNA with the help of the enzyme reverse transcriptase. This viral DNA now gets incorporated into host’s cellular DNA and directs the infected cells to produce virus particles by host’s machinery.
