Title A single amino acid substitution in the Bombyx-specific mucin-like membrane protein causes resistance to Bombyx mori densovirus.
Journal Sci Rep
Abstract gene is required for the susceptibility of B. mori larvae to BmDV and the susceptibility is solely a result of the substitution of a single amino acid with arginine. Taken together, our results provide striking evidence that a novel membrane-bound mucin-like protein functions as a cell-surface receptor for a densovirus.
