diminished virucidal activity of kethoxal against vesicular stomatitis virus pretreated with guanidinating reagent and proteases.the reactivity of vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) with kethoxal can be appreciably altered by treatment with 1-guanyl-3, 5-dimethyl pyrazole nitrate (gdmp) and proteolytic enzymes. pretreatment of purified vsv with gdmp or proteolytic enzymes markedly reduced the effectiveness of kethoxal as a virucide. the rate of neutralizability of gdmp- and trypsin-treated viruses by specific antiserum differed from that of controls.19765866
interfering activity of virulent and attenuated influenza virus strains.the interfering activity of influenza virus variants a/hong kong/1/68 (h3n202), a/victoria/35/72(h3n2-3), b/14/55 and b/ussr/69 differing in the level of their reactogenicity for adults and children was studied. an inverse relationship was established between reactogenicity of the strains and their interfering activity in the resistant chick embryo cell (cec) cultures. virulent strains did not interfere with vesicular stomatitis virus. vaccine strains used for commercial live influenza vaccine s ...19769798
transcriptase activity associated with rabies virion.rabies virion-associated transcriptase activity was investigated in vitro and compared with that of the new jersey serotype of vesicular stomatitis virus. the concentration of detergent that affected 3hgmp incoporation into acid-insoluble material was significantly different for both viruses. vesicular stomatitis virus new jersey required 0.05 to 0.1% nonionic detergent, whereas rabies virion could not be fully activated unless 4 to 5% detergent was used. other optimal conditions were as follows ...197722766
pseudotype particles of vesicular stomatitis virus with surface antigens of bovine leukaemia virus--vsv (blv) -- as a sensitive probe for detecting antibodies in the sera of spontaneously infected cattle.phenotypically mixed particles containing the genome of vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) and envelope antigen corresponding to bovine leukaemia virus (blv) -- the vsv (blv) pseudotypes -- can be employed as a rapid, specific and sensitive probe for detecting blv-neutralizing antibodies in bovine sera.197826209
an rna polymerase activity in purified rabies rna polymerase activity has been demonstrated in purified rabies virions. efficiency of the reaction is low since the rate of incorporation was equal to 3 to 5 pmol of uridine per hour, per mg of protein. as with other mammalian rhabdoviruses the optimal temperature was 31 degrees c. unlike vesicular stomatitis virus, manganese could be substituted for magnesium as a divalent cation, at an optimum concentration of 10 to 20 mm.197829077
diminution by vesicular stomatitis virus of acute graft vs host mortality in mice. 197939680
cross-neutralization between vesicular stomatitis virus type indiana and chandipura virus.using highly potent immune sheep sera, it was possible to demonstrate that: (1) two rhabdoviruses, classified in the vesiculovirus genus on morphological grounds but previously considered unrelated, viz., the vesicular stomatitis virus type indiana (vsv), and chandipura virus (chv), show a low-level, but distinct cross-neutralization. this was, in most combinations, considerably increased by complement. (2) the species of cells used for growing the viruses for immunization and for neutralization ...197940419
selective viral immunosuppression of the graft-versus-host reaction.graft-vs.-host (gvh) reactivity of parental lymph node (ln) cells was assayed by measurements of 3h-thymidine incorporation in vivo in spleens of irradiated f1 recipients. preincubation of parental ln cells with vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) for 2 h at 37 degrees c followed by washing resulted in an 85-90% reduction in splenic radioactivity, as did injection of vsv on days 0-2 after recipients received untreated parental ln cells. in contrast, 3h-thymidine incorporation in the spleens or irra ...197745590
immunologically specific production of interferon in cultures of rabbit blood lymphocytes: association with in vitro tests for cell-mediated immunity.lymphocytes of animals with delayed hypersensitivity produce mediators of cellular immunity when challenged in vitro with specific antigen. among these are macrophage migration inhibitory factor (mif) and interferon (if). nonspecific mitogens also induce the production of these lymphokines. in the following study leukocytes and column-purified lymphocytes of the same peripheral blood sample from tuberculin (purified protein derivatives [ppd])-sensitive rabbits were concurrently cultured in mediu ...197553204
differential sensitivity of rauscher murine leukaemia virus (mulv-r) to interferons in two interferon-responsive cell lines.the effect of interferon on the replication of vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) and type-c oncornavirus in two balb/c mouse cell lines, jls-v5 and jls-v9r, infected with mulv-r was examined. vsv replication was inhibited threefold (0-5 log10) in both cell lines by 10 to 20 units of interferon/ml. in jls-v5 cells c-type virus yields, as measured by 3h-uridine incorporation and reverse transcriptase activity, were also reduced threefold by 10 to 20 units of interferon/ml. however, in jls-v9r cells ...197658965
reverse plaque formation by hog cholera virus of the gpe-strain inducing heterologous interference.a simple and rapid plaque procedure was developed for the assay of hog cholera virus (hcv) of a particular strain, gpe-, based on its intrinsic interference with vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) on the primary swine testicle cells and on an established swine kidney cell line; the procedure is called the reverse plaque formation (rpf) method. the plaques were produced as colonies of hcv-infected cells which were vsv-sensitive, disintegrated cell sheet. these plaques became visible after 15 to 20 ...197661176
vesicular stomatitis virus (measles) pseudotypes: tool for demonstrating defective measles infections.mixed infection of vero cells with measles and vesicular stomatitis viruses gives rise to phenotypically mixed infections virus particles possessing the properties of pseudotypes. similar results were obtained when vesicular stomatitis virus was used to superinfect a defective measles system.197561189
interactions of vesicular stomatitis virus with murine cell surface antigens.the process of maturation of vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) results in the loss of 70% of the h-2k antigenic activity from l-cell plasma membranes. this phenomenon is also demonstrated during vsv infection of cells of the h-2d haplotype. using the method of inhibition of immune cytolysis, vsv-infected l5178y tissue culture cells and vsv-infected meth a fibrosarcoma cells grown in vivo show a loss of h-2d activity of 73 and 76%, respectively. using monospecific antisera, it is seen that vsv inf ...197661285

inhibition of oncornavirus functions by 2'-azido polynucleotides.the 2'-azido analogs of poly(u) and poly(c), poly(duz) [poly(2'-azido-2'-deoxyuridylic acid)], and poly-(dcz [poly(2'-azido-2'-deoxycytidylic acid)], were found to inhibit the rna-directed dna polymerase (reverse transcriptase) activity of murine leukemia (moloney, rauscher) and sarcoma (moloney) virus, and feline leukemia (theilen) and sarcoma (gardner) virus, while under the same conditions the unsubstituted parent compounds failed to do so. in addition, poly(duz) and poly(dcz) inhibited the r ...197547174
human histocompatibility determinants and virus antigens: effect of measles virus infection on hla expression.histocompatibility antigens on the surface of human lymphoblastoid cells were quantified by a microadsorption technique. during the course of measles virus infection, no quantitative or qualitations in surface hla antigens were observed. in contrast, infection with poliovirus type 1 or vesicular stomatitis virus, or treatment with puromycin (50 microgram/ml) resulted in a significant decrease in surface hla. these experiments suggest that an inhibition of host protein synthesis rather than the i ...197768989
sv40 tumor rejection induced by vesicular stomatitis virus bearing sv40 tumor-specific transplantation antigen (sv40-tsta). i. specificity of immunoprotection and effect of enzyme treatment on tsta activity.highly purified vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) was obtained from vsv-infected sv40-transformed hamster cell lines. immunization with this virus protected hamsters against challenge with sv40-transformed cells (tsv5-cl2). this protection was obtained regardless of the source of the sv40-transformed cells (e.g. cat, rat, hamster) used to produce vsv, and was therefore associated with the sv40 tumor-specific transplantation antigen (sv40-tsta). furthermore, when grown on spontaneously transformed ...197771274
sv40 tumor rejection induced by vesicular stomatitis virus bearing sv40 tumor-specific transplantation antigen (sv40-tsta). ii. association of sv40-tsta activity with liposomes containing vsv glycolipids.highly purified vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) was obtained from vsv-infected sv40-transformed and from "normal" hamster cell lines. a glycolipid extract was prepared from these vsv preparations according to the folch partition procedure. these glycolipids were rendered immunogenic to the syrian hamsters when incorporated within liposomal membranes composed of lecithin/sphingomyelin/cholesterol (1/1/2 by weight). when the glycolipids were extracted from vsv grown on cell lines (tsv5-cl2 and eh ...197771275
classification of the new jersey serotype of vesicular stomatitis virus into two subtypes.we propose a reclassification of five strains of the new jersey serotype of vesicular stomatitis virus into two subtypes designated concan and hazelhurst. this subclassification into two subtypes is based on reciprocal differences in antibody neutralization of virion infectivity, nucleotide base sequence homology, oligonucleotide maps of virion rna, and interference by defective-interfering particles.197874423

pretreatment of hamster cells with phenethyl alcohol alters cell surface glycoproteins and inhibits vesicular stomatitis virus growth.chinese hamster ovary cells cultured in the presence of phenethyl alcohol exhibit obvious changes in cell surface galactose and galactosamine glycoproteins as determined by the galactose-oxidase[3h]borohydride technique and sds gel electrophoresis. cells pretreated with phenethyl alcohol (drug was removed before infection) were not as effective as hosts for vesicular stomatitis virus as untreated cultures. a minimum pretreatment time with 0.1% phenethyl alcohol of about 8 h was required before a ...197768807
inhibition of vesicular stomatitis virus multiplication in vero cells by 2-deoxy-d-glucose.2-deoxy-d-glucose (dog) effectively inhibited vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) multiplication in vero cells when pyruvate-containing medium was used as an energy source. the effectiveness of the antimetabolite was markedly reduced by substituting glucose for pyruvate in the maintenance medium. addition of dog at intervals during the viral growth cycle caused a notable decrease in viral yields. this inhibiting effect was reversed by mannose and to a lesser extent by glucose. vsv-rna synthesis was ...197941433
use of uv irradiation to identify the genetic information of vesicular stomatitis virus responsible for shutting off cellular rna synthesis.uv irradiation of infectious vesicular stomatitis virus was employed to study the relationship between the expression of certain viral gene functions and viral inhibition of rna synthesis in mouse myeloma (mpc-11) cells. viral infectivity, protein synthesis, and viral mrna synthesis were all highly susceptible to inactivation by uv radiation; however, low levels of viral transcriptase activity were detected in vitro in virus preparations subjected to large doses of uv radiation. in sharp contra ...197990165
tetracycline-mediated photodynamic inactivation of animal viruses.demethylchlortetracycline (dmct), doxycycline and, to a lesser extent, chlortetracycline were capable of mediating the in vitro photoinactivation of venezuelan equine encephalitis (vee) virus. other tetracyclines tested were found to be inactive in this respect. however, no correlation between chemical structure and photosensitizing activity could be established. the photoinactivation of vee virus by dmct proceeds through a photodynamic mechanism as shown by the absolute requirement of o2 for th ...1979120411

characterization of an in vitro persistent-state measles virus infection: species characterization and interference in the bgm/mv cell line.serological methods of mixed agglutination and indirect immunofluorescence showed the bgm/mv cell line to possess monkey antigens. as a means of further characterizing the species constitution of the bgm/mv cell line, the species specificity of viral-induced interferon from these cells, as well as the response of these cells to exogenous interferons, was determined. low titers of spontaneously elaborated interferon capable of protecting monkey but not mouse cells were detected in bgm/mv culture ...1975163789
cellular adsorption function of the sialoglycoprotein of vesicular stomatitis virus and its neuraminic acid.exposure of vesicular stomatitis (vs) virions to neuraminidase resulted in loss of their ability to agglutinate goose erythrocytes and to attach to l cells concomitant with hydrolysis of sialic acid. these viral adsorptive functions were also destroyed by tryspsinization. sialyl transferase resialylation in vitro of neuraminidase-treated vs virions restored their hamagglutinating and adsorptive functions almost to original levels. erythrocyte and l cell receptors for attachment of vs virions wer ...1975163924
translation and identification of the mrna species synthesized in vitro by the virion-associated rna polymerase of vesicular stomatitis virus.vesicular stomatitis virus messenger rna has been transcribed in vitro from the viral genome by the virion-associated rna polymerase in quantities suitable for translation. wheat germ cell-free extracts programmed with the isolated in vitro 12-18s rna fraction synthesize polypeptides similar to the viral n, ns, and m proteins, as judged by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and tryptic peptide mapping of the in vitro products and the viral marker polypeptides. in addition, ...1975164017

sequence of 200 nucleotides at the 3'-terminus of the genome rna of vesicular stomatitis virus.the sequence of 200 nucleotides at the 3'-terminus of the genome rna of vesicular stomatitis virus, indiana serotype, was determined by adding a poly(a) tract to the 3'-terminus of genome rna, then using the poly(a) as a binding site for a primer to initiate reverse transcription of the rna, and analysing the complementary dna sequence by the dideoxynucleoside triphosphate chain termination method. proceeding 3' to 5', the genome rna sequence consisted of a sequence complementary to the leader r ...197990365
structure-function relationships and mode of replication of animal rhabdoviruses.recently accumulated knowledge allows more precise comparison of the structural (and possibly evolutionary) relationships of several different animal rhabdoviruses: vesicular stomatitis virus, rabies virus, kern canyon virus, and spring viremia of carp virus. each virus is composed primarily of a glycoprotein, an rna-associated nucleoprotein, and one or two membrane proteins. vesicular stomatitis virus group viruses contain lesser amounts of two additional distinct polypeptides, ns and l. the se ...1975165494
selective blockage of initiation of host protein synthesis in rna-virus-infected cells.poliovirus mrna and mrna transcribed from vesicular stomatitis virus and reovirus genomes efficiently direct protein synthesis in vivo under experimental conditions where the initiation of host protein synthesis is selectively blocked. the selective blockage of host peptide chain initiation after exposure to hypertonic medium indicates that the translation of viral mrna is more efficiently initiated than is the translation of host mrna. it further suggests that virus directed suppression of host ...1975165500
analysis of the 3'-terminal nucleotide sequence of vesicular stomatitis virus n protein mrna.the sequence of 205 nucleotides adjacent to the poly(a) tract at the 3'-terminus of the mrna encoding the n polypeptide of vesicular stomatitis virus has been determined by copying with reverse transcriptase and using 2', 3'-dideoxynucleoside triphosphates as specific chain terminators. the method appears highly suitable for sequence determination in any purified mrna. an examination of the sequence did not locate without ambiguity the limit of polypeptide coding rna. the hexanucleotide aauaaa, ...197882934
changes in the virus-host cell relationship in a stable non-virogenic cell line persistently infected with measles virus (bgm/mv).a non-virogenic african green monkey kidney cell line bgm/mv persistently infected with a neurotropic mouse brain-adapted strain of measles virus, was found to have undergone significant changes in the virus-host cell relationship between passages 35 and 119. rather than the stable non-cytopathic relationship previously reported in which approximately 100% of the cells contained measles antigens and less than 1% of the cells expressed cell surface measles antigen, we observed cyclic manifestatio ...1979118238

effect of tetraethyl thiuram disulfide (disulfiram) on the multiplication of enveloped viruses.disulfiram at concentrations between 0.1 and 0.3 mm inhibits the multiplication of semliki forest virus (sfv), fowl plague virus (fpv), newcastle disease virus (ndv), vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv), and pseudorabies virus (prv), when administered 1 hour before and during adsorption. there is, however, no inhibition of virus multiplication, when the drug is added after adsorption onto chick embryo cells. disulfiram interferes neither with the receptors of the virus nor of erythrocytes, and it d ...1975173261
on the mechanism of neurotropism of vesicular stomatitis virus in newborn hamsters. studies with temperature-sensitive mutants.the virulence of temperature-sensitive mutants of vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) injected subcutaneously into newborn hamsters was positively correlated with their tendency to generate revertants and with their leakiness in cultured hamster embryo fibroblasts maintained at 37 degrees c, the measured body temperature of the animals under our experimental conditions. the complementation group of the mutants seemed important only in that it tended to determine reversion frequency and leakiness. o ...1975173795
inhibition of cellular protein synthesis by simultaneous pretreatment of host cells with fowl plague virus and actinomycin d: a method for studying early protein synthesis of several rna viruses.a method is described for analysis of viral protein synthesis early after infection when minute amounts of viral proteins are effectively concealed by large amounts of produced host-specific proteins. the method is superior to a radioimmune assay, since all virus-induced proteins can be measured independent of their immunological reactivity. host-specific protein synthesis can be suppressed by infection with fowl plague virus. addition of actinomycin c 1.25 h postinfection does not prevent this ...1975173875
scanning electron microscopic studies of virus-infected cells. i. cytopathic effects and maturation of vesicular stomatitis virus in l2 cells.l2 cells infected with vesicular stomatitis virus under single-cycle conditions have been studied by scanning electron microscopy after preparation by the critical point drying technique. three dimensional images of intact cells show bullet-shaped vesicular stomatitis virus virions budding singly and in radiating clusters both from the plasma membrane between cellular microvilli and from the sides of microvilli. virus-induced cytopathic effects observed by scanning electron microscopy include in ...1975163360
analysis of uridine incorporation in chicken embryo cells infected by vesicular stomatitis virus and its temperature-sensitive mutants: uridine transport.the shut-off of rna synthesis in chicken embryo cells, after infection with vesicular stomatitis virus, is partially due to a reduced capacity of the infected cells to transport uridine. permeability to uridine decreases exponentially after infection. this loss of ability to transport uridine may be caused either by structural components of the input virions or may result from the expression of the viral gene products. in the latter case, only minor levels of viral transcription is sufficient to ...1975163348

virus envelope markers in mammalian tropism of avian rna tumor viruses.pseudotypes of vesicular stomatitis virus were prepared with avian sarcoma viruses and avian leukemia viruses representing five different subgroups. these pseudotypes display a host range restricted to that of the avian tumor virus when assayed on avian cells and are neutralized by subgroup-specific antisera. the efficiency of penetration of mammalian cells was assayed by using these vesicular stomatitis virus pseudotypes. pseudotypes of avian tumor viruses belonging to subgroup d and of b77 vir ...1975163337
inhibition by aurintricarboxylic acid and polyethylene sulfonate of rna transcription of vesicular stomatitis virus.the in vitro activity of the ribonucleoprotein-dependent rna transcriptase of vesicular stomatitis virions was found to be completely inhibited by low concentrations of aurintricarboxylic acid (ata) and polyethylene sulfonic acid (pes) when these inhibitors were added before the start of the rna polymerase reaction. however, if rna synthesis was allowed to occur before ata or pes was added, rna synthesis continued for a short time (10 min or less) in the presence of either inhibitor at a concent ...1975171445
progeny resulting from complementation between mutants of vesicular stomatitis virus.the complementation properties of the virus progeny released from cells mixedly infected with mutants of vesicular stomatitis virus belonging to four different complementation groups have been examined. the group iv mutant, tsw16b, was tested in combinations with three group i mutants (tsw4, tsw28, and tsg11), one group ii mutant (tsg22), and one group iii mutant (tsw29). virus stocks were grown from isolated plaques appearing on the cell monolayers used to assay the mixed infection yields and t ...1975163131

replication of reticuloendotheliosis viruses in cell culture: chronic infection.after an initial acute infection with cell killing, chicken or duck embryo fibroblasts infected in culture with reticuloendotheliosis viruses set up a chronic infection with no cell killing or morphological transformation. essentially all of the chronically infected cells produced virus. the virus production was not sensitive to cytosine arabinoside or mitomycin c as was virus production in an acute infection. the chronically infected cells had a strong group-specific resistancto the c.p.e. of s ...1975167114
factors involved in the generation and replication of rhabdovirus defective t particles.previous indications that cloned b virions might be genetically predisposed to generate a particular defective t particle are shown to be inaccurate. t particle generation was found to be a much more random process than was previously believed. we show that the previously observed generation of particular sizes of t particles by b virion pools is due to the random generation of t particles during preparation of first-passage pools of cloned b virions, and these breed true during the additional p ...1976176445
oligosaccharide moieties of the glycoprotein of vesicular stomatitis virus.vesicular stomatitis virus contains a single structural glycoprotein whose carbohydrate sequences are probably specified by the host cell. the glycopeptides derived by pronase digestion of the glycoprotein of vesicular stomatitis virus grown in hela cells have an average molecular weight of 1,800. there are multiple oligosaccharide chains on the vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein with protein-carbohydrate linkages that are cleaved only by strong alkali under reducing conditions, suggesting ...1976176458
virus-dependent glycosylation.the oligosaccharides of the membrane glycoproteins of sindbis virus, vesicular stomatitis virus, and rous sarcoma virus were compared on the basis of apparent size and sugar composition. it appears that each virus acquires a different set of oligosaccharides during growth in a single type of cell.1975173894
efficacy of exogenous interferon treatment initiated after onset of multiplication of vesicular stomatitis virus in the brains of mice.initiation of treatment with potent interferon preparations (6-4 x 10-6 units per dose) 4 days after intranasal inoculation of vsv (at a time when virus has already multiplied in the brains of most mice) resulted in a marked increase in mouse survival. in a series of 6 experiments only 11 to 18% of control mice survived whereas 52% of interferon treated mice survival. these results suggest the usefulness of exogenous interferon even when treatment is begun late in the course of an acute virus di ...1975167120
polykaryocytosis induced by vesicular stomatitis virus infection in bhk-21 cells.cytopathological effects by vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) infection were studied in several cell lines. marked polykaryocyte formation was observed in monolayers of certain strains of bhk-21 cells infected with vsv. the bhk-21-kb cells were found to be the most susceptible to virus-induced cell fusion. this type of cell fusion was related to intracellular growth of the viruses, and strong cytolytic changes were found to occur following the development of large multinucleated giant cells. the ...1975174526
lethal synergy between sarcoma-180/tg cells and vesicular stomatitis virus in interaction between sarcoma-180/tg cells and vesicular stomatitis virus in adult mice resulted in the rapid onset of extensive mortality. this interaction, termed lethal synergy, occurred only at early stages of ascites induction in animals with no prior virus contact. a significant sparing effect conferred by the serotonin antagonist dibenamine was reversed by the administration of serotonin. the cause of death was not determined, but a mechanism involving hypersensitivity is indicated.1975174141
the pathogenesis of vesicular stomatitis virus, serotype indiana, in aedes aegypti mosquitoes. i. intrathoracic injection.analysis of infectious virus particles after intrathoracic injection revealed that aedes aegypti mosquito tissues are capable of supporting the growth of vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv), serotype indiana. although all tissues assayed (salivary gland, midgut, diverticulum, malphigian tubules, and ovary) were capable of supporting vsv growth, the salivary gland was the only organ capable of maintaining an appreciable amount of virus for periods longer than 9 days postinfection. electron microscop ...1976176893
inhibition of vesicular stomatitis virus by kethoxal bis (thiosemicarbazone).kethoxal bis (thiosemicarbazone) (kts) inhibited replication of, and plaque formation by, vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv) in chick embryo cells. no other thiosemicarbazones tested were effective. virus-specific m-rna and protein synthesis were inhibited by kts. however, virion rna-dependent rna synthesis was not inhibited by the drug. treatment of vsv virions directly with kts produced enhancement, rather than inactivation, of plaque formation. kts inhibited cellular dna and rna synthesis by 67 ...197772131
association of vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein with virion membrane: characterization of the lipophilic tail fragment.the proteolytic enzyme, thermolysin, degraded the external segment of the membrane glycoprotein of intact vesicular stomatitis (vs) virions but left behind a small nonglycosylated fragment, presumably embedded in the virion membrane. other proteases generated membrane-associated glycoprotein fragments differing somewhat in molecular weight. the thermolysin-resistant, virion-associated fragment, which can be selectively solubilized by either triton x-100 or chloroform/methanol, has a molecular we ...1975168400
further evidence for the existence of a viral envelope protein defect in the bryan high-titer strain of rous sarcoma virus.electron microscopy observations of purified bryan high-titer rous sarcoma virus (bh rsv) using the freeze-drying technique showed that progeny made in the absence of a helper virus lacked visible surface projections or spikes. phenotypic mixing experiments employing bh rsv and a thermolabile mutant of vesicular stomatitis virus, tl 17, yielded no evidence of pseudotype formation. since tl 17 is known to be defective for an envelope glycoprotein, the lack of successful phenotypic mixing with bh ...1975168409
association of ribosomes with intracellular vesicular stomatitis virus particles.ribosomes are observed intimately associated with nucleocapsids of vesicular, stomatitis virus, especially those that line structures that are either cytoplasmic vesicles or invaginations of the plasma membrane.1975168410
