To develop the baculovirus expression vector system (BEVS) adopting p10 gene promoter of Spodoptera exigua nucleopolyhedrovirus (SeNPV), we characterized the p10 gene of SeNPV. The nucleotide sequence of 545 bases including the coding region of p10 gene was determined. Compared with the previously reported SeNPV p10 gene (Zuidema et al., 1993), 4 bases were different in the 5' and 3' flanking region but no difference was found in the coding region. The p10 gene was located within Xho I 1.5 Kb, Sph 1 2.4 Kb and Cla I 4.0 Kb fragments by Southern hybridization analysis. Also, the Sph I 2.4 Kb and the Cla I 4.0 Kb fragments were cloned and their restriction enzyme maps were determined.
