Size of genome segments and encoded proteins determined by sequence analysis of the genome segments, except where estimated from electrophoretic migration (indicated by *).
': To facilitate comparisons of proteins across species, genera and families, protein structure / function indicators have been added to protein names : RNA polymerase = (Pol), Polyhedrin = (Pod). Guanylyl transferase / transmethylase, 'cap' forming enzyme = (CaP). Other species within the genus may have proteins with significant differences in sizes.
1: Protein nomenclature based on protein migration order during PAGE (McCrae and Mertens 1983).
2: [Alternative nomenclature based on the number of the genome segment from which the protein is translated, (Hagiwara et al 2002)].
3: Structural roles ('capsid shell protein' (CSP), 'turret protein' (TP) and 'large protrusion protein' (LPP)), identified by Zhou et al 2003.
