physical characterization of a stomatitis papulosa virus genome: a cleavage map for the restriction endonucleases hindiii and ecori.the genome of stomatitis papulosa virus (a parapoxvirus) was cleaved with the restriction endonucleases hindiii and ecori, each giving rise to 6 fragments respectively. double digestion with both enzymes resulted in 8 bands, two of which contained dna fragments in double molar concentrations as revealed by reciprocal digests of isolated dna fragments. the genome size, estimated by summation of the molecular weights of the fragments, is approximately 86 x 10(6) daltons, some 30 x 10(6) daltons sm ...1979218532
absence of interferon production in a newly established human cell line.a cell line established from human embryonic lung, hel-r66, was demonstrated to be highly susceptible to herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2, vaccinia virus, newcastle disease virus (ndv), japanese encephalitis virus (jev), western equine encephalitis (wee) virus, sindbis virus, vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv), and rabies virus. the maximal yields of ndv, jev, wee virus, and rabies virus in this cell line exceeded by 2--4 logs those in control human embryonic lung cells. inability of this cell l ...1979218901
studies of rna isolated from piptoporus betulinus as interferon inducer.crude rna isolated from piptoporus betulinus and two fractions of it obtained after the chromatography contain single-stranded rna. the crude rna, but not its chromatographic fractions, are resistant to the pancreatic rna-ase. the crude preparation of rna from p. betulinus contains beside ribose, considerable amounts of glucose, galactose and mannose. the crude rna from p. betulinus induces in the human fibroblasts interferon with specific activity of 400 units per mg of protein.1978219808
studies on the polypeptides of poxvirus. i. comparison of structural polypeptides in vaccina, cowpox and shope fibroma viruses.radioactively labeled vaccinia, cowpox and shope fibroma virions free from any detectable contamination with host cell protein, were dissociated into their constituent polypeptides, and these were then analyzed by sds-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and autoradiography. the profiles of constituent polypeptide bands of four strains of vaccinia virus (ihd-w, ihd-j, lister and dis) were almost the same, except that a polypeptide of about 41,000 daltons was not detectable in the autoradiogram of ...1978219840
studies on the polypeptides of poxvirus. ii. comparison of virus-induced polypeptides in cells infected with vaccinia, cowpox and shope fibroma viruses.virus-induced polypeptides in cells infected with vaccinia, cowpox and shope fibroma viruses were examined by sds-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by autoradiography. at least 42 vaccinia virus-induced polypeptides were identified among the polypeptides of cells pulse-labeled with [35s]-methionine and/or of fractionated cells labeled with [14c]-leucine for 24 hr. they consisted of 15 polypeptides (early polypeptides) which were synthesized even in the presence of cytosine-1-beta-d-ara ...1978219843
antiviral action of benzo[de]isoquinoline-1,3-diones: 5-nitro-2-(2-dimethylaminoethyl) and 5-nitro-2-[2-(1-pyrrolidine)-ethyl] derivatives.two benzo[de]isoquinoline-diones, namely 5-nitro-2-(2-dimethylaminoethyl)-benzo[de]isoquinoline-1,3-dione and 5-nitro-2-[2-(1-pyrrolidine)-ethyl]-benzo[de]isoquinoline-1,3-dione, caused inhibition of the viral replication, when assayed against herpes simplex and vaccinia viruses in chick embryo cell cultures. influenza and sindbis virus replication were unaffected by these chemicals. virucidal effects were unobserved. the inhibitory activity is time-related. ocular and dermal infections with vac ...1979221156
activation of reticuloendothelial cells following infection with murine cytomegalovirus.macrophage and reticuloendothelial system function was investigated in adult, female c3h mice during the course of a nonlethal infection with murine cytomegalovirus (mcmv). peritoneal macrophages harvested from mice infected three to 21 days previously were tumoricidal in vitro for a syngeneic mammary tumor cell line and showed antiviral activity by suppressing replication of vaccinia virus in a fibroblast monolayer. in addition, macrophages harvested from animals on days 7 and 14 after mcmv inf ...1979221597
vaccinia virus replication requires active participation of the host cell transcriptional apparatus.the ability of vaccinia virus to replicate in bsc-40 monkey cells whose nuclei have been functionally inactivated was examined. exposure of cell monolayers to ultraviolet radiation at doses that did not alter the cells' capacity to support a subsequent infection by a cytoplasmic virus (vesicular stomatitis virus) caused a reduction to less than 10% in the observed yield of infectious progeny from vaccinia virus and herpes simplex virus (type 1) infections. similarly, replication of vaccinia vir ...1979221909
