routine titration of foot and mouth disease virus suspensions by analytical ultracentrifugation. 1: sedimentation method.infectivity and complement fixation (cf) tests are commonly used for the routine titration of foot and mouth disease (fmd) virus suspensions. only recently were techniques published for the routine determination of the virus concentration by the physical properties of the virions (fayet et al., 1971; barteling et al., 1974). these techniques are based on the separation of the virions from the culture fluid by sedimentation through a sucrose gradient, in a preparative ultracentrifuge. the ultrav ...1976185978

interferon inducers and foot-and-mouth disease vaccines: influence of two synthetic polynucleotides on antibody response and immunity in guinea pigs and swine.polyriboadenylic-polybouridylic acid enhanced the immunological response of guinea pigs to aqueous foot-and-mouth disease virus vaccine. polyriboninosinic-polyribocytidylic acid enhanced the early antibody production of swine to oil emulsified foot-and-mouth disease virus vaccine. polyriboninosinic-polyribocytidylic acid alone did not stimulate resistance to foot-and-mouth disease in swine.1977188530
antirival activity of n-phenyl-n'-arylthiourea derivatives against some rhinoviruses.the effect of 12 derivatives of n-phenyl-n'-aryl- or alkylthiourea, inhibitors of human enteroviruses and foot-and-mouth disease virus, on reproduction of some rhinoviruses (h-17, b-632) in hela bristol cells was studied. as screening methods both the multicylce growth test in roller tube cultures and two variants of plaque inhibition tests were employed. the compounds selected were tested in one-step growth cycle set-up. we established that n-phenyl-n'-4-hydroxyphenylthiourea (v-24) and n-pheny ...1977188604
biochemical analysis of a virulent and an avirulent strain of foot-and-mouth disease virus.a comparison has been made of some of the serological and physicochemical properties of a virulent and an avirulent strain of foot-and-mouth disease virus, serotype sat1. the avirulent strain (sat1-82) was derived from the virulent strain (sat1-7) by serial passage in bhk 21 cells. the viruses were indistinguishable in cross-neutralization tests. in immunodiffusion tests a clear spur line was obtained with the sat1-82 antiserum but not with sat1-7 antiserum. the major polypeptides of the two vir ...1977188983

[serologic study of 2 strains of foot-and-mouth virus, cultured in cell line ib-rs-2, clone 26-3].the antigenic characteristics of the two fmdv plaque size variants asq-pg and asq-pp were studied by serum neutralization kinetics. the results evidentiated that the antiserum asq-pg and asq-pp neutralized both variants at the same extent. the plaque population of these variants after passage in laboratory animals was compared in ib-rs-2 cells.1978224836
[effect of hormones on the susceptibility of the swine cell line ib-rs-2 to foot-and-mouth disease virus].the actions of hydrocortisone and insulin on the multiplication of foot-and-mouth disease virus were studied. the data obtained showed that the infectivity and the synthesis of the virus nucleic acid as evaluated through the plaque assay method and the kinetics of uridine-3h incorporation were increased or decreased by hydrocortisone (2 x 10(-6) m). the induction of both effects seems to be related to the carbohydrate metabolism: when the maintenance medium contained glucose or glucose plus calf ...1978224839
[isolation of foot-and mouth disease virus in swine with other diseases].the authors took a survey of foot-and-mouth disease samples of myocardium and tonsil from swine which was died without clinicals signs of foot-and-mouth disease, with isolation of virus, type o, a and c. it was observed and accentuated relation between the incidence of hog cholera, pneumonia and atipic foot-and-mouth disease, especially from suckling pigs.1978224841
[effects of polyionic compounds in the plaque formation of different strains of foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv) in the swine cell line ib-rs-2].the effects of dithylaminoethyl (deae)-dextran (dd) and dextran-sulfate (ds) were studied in some strains of the foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv). the strains asq-pg, cr and o, large plaque variants in ib-rs-2 cells, when dd or ds were added to the agar overlay, the plaques were inhibited. however, the strains asq-pp and ci, that are small plaque variants in ib-rs-2 cells, when to the agar overlay was added dd the plaques were greatly enhanced while when was added ds the plaques were inhibite ...1978224842
[swine cell sublines with different ploidies. iii. susceptibility to foot-and-mouth disease virus].ib-rs-10-ii subline with tetraploid level cells was more susceptible to the infection by the foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv) asq-pg strain than ib-rs-10-i subline with diploid level cells, when number and size of plaques and cytopathogenic effect of the virus were used as criteria. besides, the virus yield in one-cycle of infection was almost the double in ib-rs-10-ii than ib-rs-10-i cell subline and the near-tetraploid cells were more susceptible to be infected by the virus than the near-di ...1978224843
[influence of a hypertonic medium on cell susceptibility to foot-and-mouth disease virus].the influence of hypertonic medium on the relationship between two cell clones of ib-rs-2 swine line and the foot-and-mouth disease virus was studied. although the number of infected cells was increased by the cell treatment with the hypertonic medium, before or during the time of virus adsorption and penetration onto the cells, showed by the plaque number, the viral replication was partially inhibited as showed by the plaque size as by the viral yield in one-cycle of infection. on the other han ...1978224844

dose-response relationships in a microneutralization test for foot-and-mouth disease viruses.two-dimensional quantal microneutralization tests on foot-and-mouth disease viruses, in which neutralizing antibody activity was titrated against a serial range of virus doses, demonstrated a variety of dose-response curves some of which were rectilinear, others clearly curvilinear. moreover, in the case of the non-linear responses obtained with some antisera, the shape of the curve was such that antibody titres recorded with doses of virus ranging from 10(3)-10(5) tcd50 were closely similar. st ...1978202650
cross reaction between bovine enterovirus and south african territories i5 foot-and-mouth disease virus.a bovine enterovirus (e76t) isolated from a 2-year-old bull produced serologic cross reactions to south african territories (sat) i5 foot-and-mouth disease virus when inoculated into guinea pigs and cattle. cross-reacting serum titers to sat i5 virus of 1:320 by the plaque-reduction neutralization test and 1:20 by the radial immunodiffusion test occurred in 2 steers after they were inoculated with the e76t virus. in 1 steer, maximal cross-reacting titers appeared related to a 2nd exposure to the ...1978204230

cross reactions of normal bovine sera with foot-and-mouth disease virus: incidence, duration, and effect of shipping stress.serum samples were obtained from 30 hereford steers in an area known to be free of foot-and-mouth disease (fmd) viruses as follows: before shipment and 4 times during a 70-day period after shipment; the sera were tested for the presence of cross-reacting antibody to various viruses. percentages of sera containing cross-reacting antibody to fmd virus detected by the plaque-reduction neutralization and the radial immunodiffusion techniques were higher for the fmd viruses asia and sat i5 than for t ...1978206170
enzyme-labelled immunosorbent assay techniques in foot-and-mouth disease virus research.the indirect elisa technique has been developed successfully to measure antibodies to foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv) in cattle sera. preliminary studies using a standard serum assay show that reproducible results are obtained. the method should prove useful for the examination of antibody titres in sera from large numbers of cattle or other animals.1978206625
in vitro comparison of foot-and-mouth disease virus subtype variants causing disease in vaccinated cattle.foot-and-mouth disease virus isolates of types o, a and sat 2, from diseased animals in herds routinely vaccinated twice a year were compared antigenically with the vaccine strains in the complement-fixation, neutralization and radial immunodiffusion tests. it was found that strains which had readily infected vaccinated cattle had r values against the vaccine strain in the complementfixation and radial immunodiffusion tests of 30 or less, while strains causing primary outbreaks with little sprea ...1978206626
