mechanism of vaccinia virus release and its specific inhibition by n1-isonicotinoyl-n2-3-methyl-4-chlorobenzoylhydrazine.the release of vaccinia virus from rk-13 cells and its specific inhibition by n(1)-isonicotinoyl-n(2)-3-methyl-4- chlorobenzoylhydrazine (imcbh) was studied. intracellular naked vaccinia virus (inv) was wrapped by intracytoplasmic membranes, forming an intracellular double-membraned virion. wrapped virions migrated to the cell surface, where the outer virion membrane presumably fused with the plasma membrane, releasing virus surrounded by the inner membrane, referred to as extracellular envelope ...1979501802
[persistence of the vaccinia virus and interferon production in the organs of vaccinated white mice].experiments in white mice vaccinated intradermally with live smallpox vaccine demonstrated penetration and long-term persistence of vaccinia virus in the spleen, lymph nodes, lungs and brain. in the same organs interferon was detected. after a certain period of time interferon was found in higher titers and for longer periods than in the blood of the animals which indicates its production directly in these organs.1979506205
biogenesis of poxviruses: mirror-image deletions in vaccinia virus dna.restriction endonuclease analysis of viral dna extracted from wild-type and temperature-sensitive mutants of vaccinia ihd-w (dales et al., 1978) revealed sequence alterations in approximately 20% of all ts clones examined. the rearrangements were due to deletions up to 250 nucleotide pairs long. using eco ri, sal i, bam i, hpa i and ava i, the deletions were always observed in the same fragments, while analysis with hind iii demonstrated deletions of identical size in the two terminal fragments. ...1979509515
antibody studies in natural bovine cowpox.serological studies on cows recovered from natural cowpox indicated that haemagglutinin-inhibiting (hai) antibody persisted for at least 27 weeks, and virus neutralizing (vn) antibody persisted for at least 98 weeks.1979512354
species specificity of interferon action: maintenance and establishment of the antiviral state in the presence of a heterospecific nucleus.the expression of the interferon-induced antiviral state was studied in heterokaryons and cytoplasmic hybrids (cybrids). an autoradiographic assay for the antiviral state, in which the percentage of cells containing vaccinia viral dna factories was determined, was used. the expression of the antiviral state was dominant in homokaryons and heterokaryons formed by fusion of interferon-treated cells with untreated cells. cytoplasts derived from treated cells conferred resistance to virus growth on ...1979513194
abortive transcription products of vaccinia virus are guanylylated, methylated, and polyadenylylated.abortive transcription products were synthesized in vitro by uv-irradiated vaccinia virus particles that were incubated with all four ribonucleoside triphosphates or by unirradiated particles that were incubated in reaction mixtures deficient in ctp or utp. the rna sedimented at 4 to 6s in sucrose gradients, suggesting that premature termination had occurred, presumably in one case because the dna contained uv-induced pyrimidine dimers and in the other case because of ribonucleoside triphosphate ...1979513196

restriction endonuclease analysis of red cowpox virus and its white pock variant.the dna of red cowpox virus strain brighton or its white pock variant was analysed by cleavage with restriction endonucleases hindiii, xhoi, psti or kpni. physical maps were constructed and the genomes compared with that of vaccinia virus strain die. the size of the red cowpox genome is 23 to 29 megadaltons greater than that of vaccinia and results from the presence of additional, near terminal sequences. an internal region of about 75 megadaltons appears to be highly conserved between the two v ...1979521806
use of the 51chromium release test to demonstrate antigenic differences between extracellular and intracellular forms of vaccinia virus.complement-dependent antibody lysis of vaccinia-infected cells was examined to demonstrate the antigenic differences between extracellular (ecv) and intracellular (icv) forms of vaccinia virus. cytolytic antibodies present in the antisera raised against ecv or live virus (lv) were completely removed by absorption with infected cell membranes or purified ecv but not with purified icv. absorption with infected cell membranes also abolished the neutralizing activity of ecv and lv antisera against e ...1979521807
[antiviral activity of anomeric 5-substituted 2'-deoxyuridines].the inhibiting effect for herpes and vaccinia viruses of 2'-deoxyuridine derivatives containing the substitute in the position of 5-pyrimidine ring was studied. anomeric 5-isopropyl-2'-deoxyuridines were shown to produce a marked inhibiting effect in chick embryo fibroblasts infected with herpes virus and to have no effect on vaccinia virus replication, that is, to be specific antiherpetic agents. the alpha-anomer of 5-isopropyl-2'-deoxyuridine showed antiherpetic activity in vitro comparable wi ...1979524857
[value of ultrastructural morphology in the preparation of oncolysates of human malignant melanoma].the culture of human cutaneous malignant melanomas is an important stage in the preparation of oncolysates for therapeutic purposes. the authors recall the definition of oncolysate: lysis of the malignant melanocyte by vaccinia virus liberates masked antigens which when reinjected into the patient accelerate or restimulate the production of antibodies. culture is used to increase the number of malignant melanocytes, i. e. antigenic material, which is an essential precaution in tumours of small s ...1979525843
effect of cell-mediated immune factors on the replication of an attenuated temperature-sensitive mutant of vaccinia virus.studies of the in vivo multiplication of an attenuated temperature-sensitive strain of vaccinia virus (ts2) indicated that temperature sensitivity alone could not account for the attenuation. immunodepressive treatment of intracerebrally inoculated mice had a dramatic stimulatory effect on the multiplication of the attenuated strain and suggested that establishment of ts2 infection in the mice was hindered by host defense mechanisms mediated by cellular elements. experiments carried out in vitro ...1979528056
inhibition of protein synthesis by vaccinia virus. ii. studies on the role of virus-induced rna synthesis.cytoplasmic rna synthesis can be detected in vaccinia virus-infected hela cells in the presence of 2 micrograms/ml but not 20 micrograms/ml of actinomycin d. when rna synthesis is observed protein synthesis is inhibited in infected, treated cells. we had previously noted that such a correlation may also be observed in infected, cycloheximide-treated cells. if actinomycin d (20 micrograms/ml) is added to these cells at various times after infection and treatment, the inhibition of protein synthes ...1979528979
effect of n,n'-bis(methylisatin-beta-thiosemicarbazone)-2-methylpiperazine on vaccinia virus replication in vitro and in vivo. brief report.the inhibitory effect of n,n'-bis(methylisatin-beta-thiosemicarbazone)-2-methylpiperazine (compound tski-vi) and methisazone (marboran) on the growth of vaccinia virus (ihd strain) was studied in vitro and in vivo. the therapeutic indices of both compounds determined in vivo were similar, but tski-vi was found more efficient in vitro.1979539911

laboratory diagnosis in a case of fatal progressive vaccinia due to manifest immunologic deficiencies.a case of progressive vaccinia is described, in a 21 years old man, diagnosed after 8 months of vaccinial lesion's evolution. the area of vaccination developed progressive necrosis and metastatic lesions evolved on various regions of the body. the vaccinia virus was isolated on the chorioallantoic membrane of embryonated eggs, from the cutaneous lesions, blood, internal organs and even from the apparently intact skin.--the serological tests indicated hypogammaglobulinemia with absence of neutral ...1979545950
[experiments on disinfection of vaccinia virus embedded in scabs and/or at the hand].vaccinia viruses embedded in rabbit dermal scabs were subjected to physical and chemical disinfection procedures. scabs were suspended in vitro without saline or in physiological saline, and left for 1 hour at 70 to 90 degrees c. a complete inactivation was achived only in those scab samples which had been incubated at 90 degrees c for 1 hour and suspended in physiological saline. scabs which had been placed in a disinfecting apparatus (vacudes 4000) filled with mattrasses consistently proved to ...1977557270
evaluation of central nervous system vaccinia antibody synthesis in multiple sclerosis patients.a serum/cerebrospinal fluid (csf) ratio method was used to determine whether elevated csf vaccinia antibody titers in some patients with multiple sclerosis are the result of central nervous system antibody synthesis or of a leak in the blood-brain barrier. nine of 20 multiple sclerosis patients were noted to have a depressed serum/csf vaccinia antibody ratio and a normal ratio for poliovirus-i, an agent thought not to be involved in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis. these data suggest cent ...1977557758
synthesis of vaccinia viral antigens in hela cells in the presence of isatin beta-thiosemicarbazone.vaccinia virus antigens, in hela cells treated with the antipox virus drug isatin beta-thiosemicarbazone (ibt), were analyzed by immunoprecipitation, followed by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. the total radioactivity in the immunoprecipitate was decreased to almost 50% in the presence of the drug as compared to its absence. an inhibition also occurred with an ibt-dependent mutant (ibt(d)) when growing in the absence of ibt. however, similar levels of radioactivity wer ...1977557952
observations on the effects of formaldehyde on cockroaches and their flora: i. survival of vaccinia virus-infected cockroaches during fumigation with these studies it is shown that the common "british" and "american" adult cockroaches can survive exposure to formaldehyde fumigation carried out at double the strength and for four times as long as is recommended for disinfection of rooms. it is further reported that vaccinia virus ingested prior to the fumigation survives in the cockroach gut and may be excreted up to 5 days later. since cockroaches are ubiquitous and are to be found in most hospitals, laboratories and animal houses, these f ...1978563890
serologic and cross-immunity studies with contagious ecthyma and goat pox virus isolates from the western united states.contagious ecthyma and goat pox viruses were isolated from goats affected with papulopustular epidermal lesions. results of in vitro serum neutralization and in vivo cross-immunity studies indicate that these contagious ecthyma and goat pox isolates from the western united states are antigenically dissimilar and that exposure or vaccination with one isolate could not be used as a method of inducing immunity to the other. exposure to each isolate conferred immunity to re-exposure with the same ag ...1978565197
decreased lymphocyte transformation to vaccinia virus in multiple sclerosis.lymphocyte transformation to vaccinia virus was measured in multiple sclerosis (ms) patients and normal controls. there was a significant reduction of lymphocyte transformation to vaccinia virus in multiple sclerosis patients compared with the control group. in addition, a positive correlation existed between the degree of disability of the multiple sclerosis patients and the extent of lymphocyte transformation in the presence of vaccinia virus. there was no correlation between cell-mediated imm ...1978565482
[production of temperature-sensitive mutants of vaccinia virus with the aid of nitrosomethylurea, and their preliminary characteristics].the possibility of using nitrosomethylurea for production of one-hit temperature-sensitive (ts) mutants of vaccinia virus suitable for genetic and biochemical studies was explored. the effect of nitrosomethylurea on replicating dna of the virus produced 26 ts mutants, the effectiveness of mutagenesis being 10%. in recombination experiments with 12 of them it was shown that all the mutants under study had single ts defects of the genome. all ts mutants were capable of synthesizing dna under nonpe ...1978565563
[rna transcripts of both strands of viral dna in cells infected with vaccinia virus].denaturated 3h-thymidine-labeled vaccinia virus dna was hybridized with an excess of "late" virus-specific rna isolated from virus-infected chick embryo cell cultures 8 hours postinfection. the percentage of dna converted into dna-rna hybrid under these conditions never exceeded 50%. if the rna preparation had been self-annealed prior to hybridization, the percentage was decreased slightly. on the other hand, if the self-annealed rna had been treated with rn-ase and the double-stranded dna-rna h ...1978569925

formation of vaccinia virus dna-protein complex in the presence of isatin beta thiosemicarbazone (ibt).the association of newly synthesized vaccinia virus dna with proteins in infected hela cells was followed. a shift from a high density to a low density complex occurred between 3 and 6 h after infection. this process was not affected by isatin beta thiosemicarbazone (ibt), an inhibitor of pox virus growth. at 22 h after infection in the absence of ibt, mature virions of high density were observed; however, in the presence of the drug, high density dna-protein complexes, which lack the two main v ...1978690618
adsorption and penetration of enveloped and naked vaccinia virus particles.the adsorption and penetration of intracellular naked vaccinia virus (inv) and extracellular enveloped vaccinia virus (eev) were examined. the adsorption kinetics of inv and eev were similar, but inv adsorption was found to be more sensitive to the adsorption environment than eev. the pfu-to-particle ratio for the two virus particles indicated that eev was approximately two times as infectious as inv. kinetic studies at 37 degree c showed that eev penetrated cells more rapidly than inv. penetrat ...1978691111
polypeptide composition of extracellular enveloped vaccinia virus.extracellular enveloped vaccinia (eev) virus grown in sirc and in hela cells was purified by consecutive equilibrium centrifugations in sucrose and cesium chloride gradients. a higher degree of purity was obtained with virus material prepared in sirc cells. the polypeptides of purified eev and inv (intracellular naked vaccinia) virus were compared in polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis. three proteins (200,000 molecular weight [200k], 95k, and 13k) detected in hela-derived inv were absent in ...1978691112
multiple roles for atp in the synthesis and processing of mrna by vaccinia virus: specific inhibitory effects of adenosine (beta,gamma-imido) triphosphate.adenosine (beta,gamma-imido)triphosphate (amp-pnp) and guanosine (beta,gamma-imido)triphosphate (gmp-pnp) are analogs of atp and gtp with non-hydrolyzable gamma-phosphates. although both amp-pnp and gmp-pnp were used in place of atp and gtp by escherichia coli rna polymerase to transcribe vaccinia virus dna, only gmp-pnp was used by the transcriptase present within vaccinia virus cores. amp-pnp specifically prevented initiation of transcription, since rna initiated in the presence of atp, gtp, a ...1978691115
simultaneous assay for mrna (guanine-7-)-methyltransferase and mrna(2'-o-nucleoside)methyltransferase of purified vaccinia (wr) virions. 1978697020
mrna(nucleoside-2'-)-methyltransferase from vaccinia virus. purification and physical s-adenosyl-l-methionine:mrna(nucleoside-2'-)-methyltransferase, one of at least three activities required for the 5'-terminal modification of mrna, has been purified from vaccinia virus particles. employing brome mosaic virus rna ending in m7g(5')pppg- as substrate, a simple deae-cellulose filter assay measuring the incorporation of methyl groups from s-adenosyl[methyl-3h]methionine to position 2' of the penultimate nucleoside was devised. starting from disrupted vaccinia virus cores, a 350-f ...1978701281
mrna(nucleoside-2'-)-methyltransferase from vaccinia virus. characteristics and substrate mrna(nucleoside-2'-)-methyltransferase purified from vaccinia virus was shown to methylate the penultimate nucleoside of rna ending in m7g(5')pppn-. by contrast, rnas ending in pn-, ppn-, or even g(5')pppn- are not methyl acceptors. this specificity indicates that 2'-o-methylation is the final step in the formation of the m7g(5')pppnm- cap structure. both adenosine and guanosine are methylated, in accordance with the presence of these nucleosides in the penultimate position of vaccinia virus ...1978701282
absence of detectable capping and methylating enzymes in influenza the presence of mg(2+) and a specific dinucleotide primer (apg or gpg), the influenza virion transcriptase synthesizes the eight discrete segments of complementary rna (crna) containing polyadenylic acid (plotch and krug, j. virol. 21:24-34, 1977). virions were examined for their ability to cap and methylate crna containing di- or triphosphorylated 5' termini. by using the primers ppapg, pppapg, or ppgpg, viral crna was synthesized in vitro with [alpha-(32)p]-gtp and s-[methyl-(3)h]adenosylme ...1978702657
the effect of mixed infections induced by adenovirus type 5 and vaccinia virus, on the ultrastructure of kb cells. i. ultrastructure of kb cells infected with adenovirus type 5 and vaccinia virus (within a period of 24--72 hours). 1978708935
identification and characterization of ribosomal proteins phosphorylated in vaccinia-virus-infected hela cells.two-dimensional analysis of 32p-labelled ribosomal proteins revealed three proteins which are phosphorylated in vaccinia-virus-infected hela cells. all three proteins belong to the 40-s ribosomal subunits and were identified as s2, s6 and s16. the ribosomal protein s6 is phosphorylated also in uninfected hela cells. phosphoserine was detected in all three proteins, phosphothreonine only in the protein s2. phosphorylation of these ribosomal proteins in infected cells is dependent on the multiplic ...1978710442
atp-independent dna synthesis in vaccinia-infected l cells.mouse l cells can be made permeable to exogenous nucleotides by a cold shock in 0.01 m tris . hcl ph 7.8, 0.25 m sucrose, 1 mm edta, 30 mm 2-mercaptoethanol and 4 mm mgcl2. dna synthesis in permeabilized l cells requires atp whereas dna synthesis in permeabilized l cells that are infected with vaccinia virus is atp-independent. permeabilized l cells that are infected with ultraviolet-irradiated virus show a marked suppression of dna synthesis which is not corrected by an excess of deoxynucleosid ...1978718913
histological and ultrastructural changes in experimentally produced post-vaccinial lymphadenitis in rabbits.light and electron microscopic alterations in lymph nodes after intradermal vaccinia virus inoculation are described. in the early stages the lymph nodes show a diffuse lymphoreticular proliferation associated with the appearance of peculiar large cells called reticulolymphoblasts. this appearance can be mistaken for malignant lymphoma. later on, these changes are replaced by markedly hypertrophied lymphoid follicles which persist for long periods. these alterations can be mistaken for follicula ...1978722407
generation of virus-specific cytolytic activity in human peripheral lymphocytes after vaccination with vaccinia virus and measles virus.human peripheral blood lymphocytes (pbl) harvested after vaccination with vaccinia or measles virus showed a specific activity against virus-infected target cells. this activity peaked on day 7 and was specific for the target cells infected with the virus used for the vaccination. the cytotoxic activity was not related to hla markers. the cells involved in the cytolytic process were lymphocytes bearing fc receptors. in addition, the cytotoxic activity was abrogated by more than 90% by rabbit fab ...1978723792
expression of vaccinia virion surface tubule protein as a virus specific cell surface antigen.the sequential expression of a vaccinia virus specific antigen on the surface of infected cells has been followed by 125i-labelled anti-vaccinia igg. after an initial drop (during the first 30 minutes of infection) the amount of viral antigen at the cell surface increased steadily for the 12 hours tested. the expression of the antigen was found to depend on protein and rna synthesis from the start, but dependent on dna synthesis only after 4 hours. the senitivity of the phenomenon to ultraviolet ...1978727948
5'-terminal 7-methylguanosine and mrna function. the effect of enzymatic decapping and of cap analogs on translation of tobacco-mosaic-virus rna and globin mrna in vitro.1. decapped tobacco mosaic virus (tmv) rna and rabbit globin mrna were prepared by enzymic treatment of rnas with nucleotide pyrophosphatase purified from potato. the extent of removal of 5'-terminal 7-methylguanosine 5'-monophosphate (m7gmp) from tmv rna was at least 97% as estimated by labeling of the 5' termini in vitro with s-adenosyl[methyl-3h]methionine catalysed by vaccinia virus methyltransferases. 2. the effect of enzymic decapping was compared with the effect of cap analogs on mrnas tr ...1978729595
specific secretion of polypeptides from cells infected with vaccinia virus.the pattern of polypeptides specifically secreted by cells after infection with vaccinia virus has been analyzed. a complex pattern of apparently virus-specified polypeptides exhibiting temporal control of the type seen with intracellular polypeptides after virus infection was observed. some of the specifically secreted polypeptides were shown to be modified by glycosylation and sulfation. the possible significance of these results is discussed.1978731794
