inhibition of the mitotic response in regenerating mouse liver during viral hepatitis.viral hepatitis caused by infection with murine hepatitis virus strain a59 has been shown to affect the mitotic response after partial hepatectomy in mice. normal mice showed a delayed response, whereas nude mice did not show any response, even 5 days after partial hepatectomy.19816268550
ribonucleoprotein of avian infectious bronchitis virus.the ribonucleoprotein (rnp) of avian infectious bronchitis virus (ibv) was examined by electron microscopy after shadowing with carbon/platinum. linear rnp strands up to 6.7 microns in length, from three ivb strains, were sensitive to both pancreatic rnase and to proteases. these strands were obtained from spontaneously disrupted complete particles but not from disrupted incomplete particles that lacked rnp. they were also released from nonidet p40-disrupted particles and could be isolated on su ...19816268741
early interaction between mouse hepatitis virus 3 and cells.the interaction between mouse hepatitis virus 3 (mhv3) and cells was studied in order to investigate whether or not early events occurring after infection could be involved in the difference in virus replication seen between mouse strains with different genetic sensitivities to mhv3 infection. kinetic data showed that mhv3 uptake by both macrophages and l cells was time- and temperature-dependent. in addition, treatment of cells with cytochalasin b or prostaglandin e1, prior to virus infection, ...19816275022
the pathogenesis of chronic viral hepatitis in the nude mouse and its influence on liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy.the pathogenesis of chronic viral hepatitis due to infection with mouse hepatitis virus type 1 has been followed over a period of 30 days in the nu/nu mouse. the initial histopathology is that of a focal hepatic necrosis which evolves into a chronic hepatitis with cirrhosis. the histopathology of the experimentally induced hepatitis with mouse hepatitis type 1 is indistinguishable from that produced by the disease in nude mouse colonies due to the natural infection in the united kingdom and also ...19816275875

genome structure of mouse hepatitis virus: comparative analysis by oligonucleotide mapping.several natural variants of mouse hepatitis viruses have been compared by the t1-oligonucleotide fingerprinting technique. in general, they have diverged quite extensively. however, mhv-3, a hepatotropic strain, and a59, a nonpathogenic strain, were found to be extremely related. yet, each of them contains 2-4 specific oligonucleotides. one of the mhv-3-specific oligonucleotides was mapped in 30s poly(a)-containing rna or 6-7 kb from the 3-end and the other near the 5'-end of the genome. these t ...19816278897
mouse hepatitis virus immunofluorescence in formalin- or bouin's-fixed tissues using trypsin digestion.mouse hepatitis viral antigens were demonstrated by immunofluorescence in formalin- and bouin's-fixed tissues processed routinely for histopathology followed by partial digestion with trypsin. staining was superior in tissues fixed in formalin and was not diminished in tissue sections from paraffin blocks stored at room temperature as long as 2 years. the relative ease of this procedure and the commercial availability of reagents makes this a useful technique for the definitive diagnosis of mous ...19826281569
sequence relationships between the genome and the intracellular rna species 1, 3, 6, and 7 of mouse hepatitis virus strain a59.we have shown by t(1) oligonucleotide fingerprinting that the genome of mouse hepatitis virus strain a59 and its intracellular rna 1 have identical fingerprints and that rna 1 and the subgenomic rnas 3, 6, and 7 contain common sequences. to localize the homologous region between the rnas, we compared fingerprints of the 3' terminus of the genome with those of rna 7. the genome was partially degraded with alkali, and polyadenylate-containing fragments were purified by oligodeoxythymidylate-cellul ...19826283166
effects of experimental infection of the deer mouse (peromyscus maniculatus) with mouse hepatitis virus.three deer mice (peromyscus maniculatus) given 10(4) tcid50 of mouse hepatitis virus -s intranasally all had significant serum neutralization titers to mouse hepatitis virus -s 3 weeks later. ten other deer mice were given 10(3) tcid50 of mouse hepatitis virus -3 intranasally and placed with sentinel laboratory mice (cf1, c3h/rv, and nu/nu) and uninoculated deer mice. one inoculated deer mouse died, but mouse hepatitis virus was not isolated. no other inoculated or uninoculated animals exhibited ...19826285078
translation and processing of mouse hepatitis virus virion rna in a cell-free system.the first event after infection with mouse hepatitis virus strain a59 (mhv-a59) is presumed to be the synthesis of an rna-dependent rna polymerase from the input genomic rna. the synthesis and processing of this putative polymerase protein was studied in a cell-free translation system utilizing 60s rna from mhv-a59 virions. the polypeptide products of this reaction included two major species of 220 and 28 kilodaltons. kinetics experiments indicated that both p220 and p28 appeared after 60 min of ...19863018279
murine coronaviruses: isolation and characterization of two plaque morphology variants of the jhm neurotropic strain.two plaque-size variants of the neurotropic jhm strain of mouse hepatitis virus have been isolated from the virus stock after eight serial passages in suckling mouse brain. one variant, jhm-dl, produces large plaques, while the other, jhm-ds, produces small plaques in tissue culture. ds replicates more slowly, has a lower virus yield in vitro, and is less virulent for mice than dl. they also differ in their pathogenicity for mice: jhm-dl infection results in acute encephalomyelitis while jhm-ds ...19826296277
proteolytic cleavage of the e2 glycoprotein of murine coronavirus: host-dependent differences in proteolytic cleavage and cell fusion.cell fusion induced by infection with mouse hepatitis virus strain a59 (mhv-a59) varied markedly in extent and time course in four different murine cell lines. when inoculated at a multiplicity of 3 to 5 pfu per cell, the sac-, l2, and dbt cell lines began to fuse by 7 h, were fused into confluent syncytia by 9 to 12 h, and peeled from the substrate by 10 to 14 h. these virulent virus-cell interactions were in striking contrast to the moderate interaction of mhv-a59 with the 17 cl 1 cell line, i ...19852999444
heterologous response of antiserum-treated cell clones from a persistently infected dbt cell line to mouse hepatitis virus.from dbt cells persistently infected with mouse hepatitis virus jhm strain (jhm-cc), a cell line producing neither infectious virus nor intracellular viral antigen was obtained after two passages in the presence of antiserum. in addition, 11 cell clones were manipulated from jhm-cc and found to be also free from the virus. these newly obtained cell line and 4 of 11 cell clones were shown to be resistant to jhm and the virus recovered from jhm-cc (jhm-ccv), while the other 7 cell clones were susc ...19826302351
fusion resistance and decreased infectability as major host cell determinants of coronavirus persistence.mouse hepatitis virus persists in cultures of a subline (designated lm-k) of mouse lm cells but produces a lytic infection in l-2 cells. persistence in the lm-k cells was not accompanied by production of ts mutants or of soluble anti-mhv factors. infectious center assay demonstrated an approximately 500-fold lower level of infectibility by mhv of the lm-k cells as compared to l-2 cells. on an infected cell basis, production levels of infectious progeny and viral rna were comparable between the t ...19836310865
antigenic characterization of tettnang virus: complications caused by passage of the virus in mice from a colony enzootically infected with mouse hepatitis virus.neutralization assays were undertaken for the purpose of antigenically characterizing three strains of tettnang virus from two geographic regions. the previously reported relationship of tettnang virus strains to mouse hepatitis virus (mhv) was confirmed. however, the precise relationship of the tettnang strains to prototype mhv strains was obscured in our study by the finding that the isolates had been passaged in mice from a colony subclinically infected with mhv. an egyptian strain of tettnan ...19836312821
signal recognition particle-dependent insertion of coronavirus e1, an intracellular membrane glycoprotein.the membrane insertion of the e1 protein of a coronavirus, mouse hepatitis virus a59, was studied in a wheat germ cell-free translation system. e1 is a transmembrane protein spanning the lipid bilayer several times. it is synthesized without a cleavable signal sequence, localized intracellularly, and not transported to the cell surface. it thus represents a model intracellular protein. we found that the synthesis of e1 is specifically and stably blocked by the addition of signal recognition part ...19852985561
histopathological characterization of the naturally occurring hepatotropic virus infections of nude the last ten years the mutant athymic nude mouse has been used by many researchers as a model for studying pathological conditions in an immunodeficient host. a major problem with such mice is their susceptibility to viral infections indigenous to murine stocks, such as the hepatotropic mouse coronaviruses. in an effort to define the hepatotropic virus diseases indigenous to nude mice this paper details the pathogenesis and associated comparative histopathology of three common strains of mous ...19846321712
assembly in vitro of a spanning membrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum: the e1 glycoprotein of coronavirus mouse hepatitis virus a59.the e1 glycoprotein of coronavirus mouse hepatitis virus a59 was synthesized in vitro by translation of viral mrna in the presence of dog pancreatic microsomes. its disposition in the membrane was investigated by digestion with proteases and by selective nh2-terminal labeling. the protein spans the membrane, but only small portions from the nh2 and cooh terminus are exposed respectively in the lumenal and cytoplasmic domains; the bulk of the molecule is apparently buried in the membrane. the pro ...19846324191
the carbohydrates of mouse hepatitis virus (mhv) a59: structures of the o-glycosidically linked oligosaccharides of glycoprotein e1.two size classes of o-glycosidically linked oligosaccharides were liberated from glycoprotein e1 of mouse hepatitis virus (mhv) a59 by reductive beta-elimination and separated by h.p.l.c. the structures of the reduced oligosaccharides were determined by successive exoglycosidase digestions and by methylation analyses involving combined capillary gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and mass fragmentography after chemical ionization with ammonia. oligosaccharide a (neu5ac alpha 2----3 gal beta 1- ...19846325180
pathogenicity of mouse hepatitis virus for preimplantation mouse embryos.mouse embryos which were hatched from the zona pellucida in vitro in the presence of mouse hepatitis virus (mhv) or outgrown on coverslips and then exposed to mhv were shown by immunohistochemical staining to have virally infected trophoblast cells. zona-intact embryos incubated with mhv for 48 h (2-cell embryos) or 1.5 h (blastocysts) were resistant to infection. morulae and early blastocysts collected from donor mice experimentally infected with mhv were not infected, but the medium in which t ...19852982018
glucan-induced modification of murine viral hepatitis.glucan, a macrophage stimulant, was evaluated for its ability to alter survival and phagocytic dysfunction in mice challenged with mouse hepatitis virus strain mhv-a59. administration of glucan before the mice were challenged with the virus significantly prolonged median survival time but did not modify overall mortality compared with control mice given dextrose. maximal effectiveness was achieved when glucan was administered both before and after the viral challenge. in contrast to the marked h ...19807361108
induction of macrophage procoagulant activity by murine hepatitis virus strain 3: role of tyrosine phosphorylation.the induction of a unique macrophage procoagulant molecule by murine hepatitis virus strain 3 correlates with the severity of viral hepatitis. the role of tyrosine phosphorylation in the signalling pathway leading to procoagulant expression was studied. murine hepatitis virus strain 3 initiated a rapid increase in phosphotyrosine accumulation. tyrosine kinase inhibition precluded this increase and abrogated expression of the virus-induced procoagulant mouse fibrinogen-like protein (musfiblp) gen ...19957543590
inhibition of viral multiplication in cells chronically infected with mouse hepatitis virus by antisense rna against the polymerase gene.recently, we showed that the antisense rna containing a hammerhead ribozyme sequence against the polymerase gene of mouse hepatitis virus (mhv) inhibited viral multiplication in acute infection [10]. in the present study, we examined the inhibitory effects of an antisense rna on viral multiplication in chronic mhv infection. in cell line lr-2, in which the 926-nucleotide (nt) antisense rna containing a ribozyme sequence against the polymerase gene was expressed constitutively at a high level, ch ...19957548422
differential activation of mouse hepatitis virus-specific cd4+ cytotoxic t cells is defined by peptide this study we have characterized the core epitope recognized by the mhv-a59-specific cd4+ cytotoxic t lymphocyte (ctl) clones hs1 and b6.1, derived from balb/c and c57/bl6 mice, respectively. these cd4+ clones respond to the promiscuous peptide fragment s-329-343 of the glycoprotein s of mhv-a59. the results indicate that the core peptides of both clones overlap but are not identical. the core region of the hs1 clone is an 8-mer, and comprises the amino acid residues s-332-339, whereas the mi ...19957558143
pattern of disease after murine hepatitis virus strain 3 infection correlates with macrophage activation and not viral replication.murine hepatitis virus strain (mhv-3) produces a strain-dependent pattern of disease which has been used as a model for fulminant viral hepatitis. this study was undertaken to examine whether there was a correlation between macrophage activation and susceptibility or resistance to mhv-3 infection. peritoneal macrophages were isolated from resistant a/j and susceptible balb/cj mice and, following stimulation with mhv-3 or lipopolysaccharide (lps), analyzed for transcription of mrna and production ...19957636967
membrane integration and intracellular transport of the coronavirus glycoprotein e1, a class iii membrane glycoprotein.the e1-glycoprotein (mr = 26,014; 228 amino acids) of mouse hepatitis virus a59 is a class iii membrane glycoprotein which has been used in this study as a model system in the study of membrane integration and protein transport. the protein lacks an nh2-terminal cleavable signal sequence and spans the viral membrane three times. hydrophobic domains i and iii could serve as signal sequences for cotranslational membrane integration. domain i alone was sufficient to translocate the hydrophilic nh2 ...19882844793
