evidence for recombination between two different immunological types of foot-and-mouth disease virus.recombination was observed between temperature-sensitive (ts) mutants of two immunological types of foot-and-mouth disease virus which were distinguishable by two marker characteristics in addition to their antigenic type. putative ts+ recombinants were isolated and the segregation patterns of their marker characteristics examined. the results are discussed in terms of the origin of new sub-type strains.1975180948
in vivo interference in vesicular stomatitis virus infection.inactivated defective interfering and complete particles of vesicular stomatitis virus given intracerebrally to adult mice protect them against challenge with homologous virus whether this is given at the same time or several days later. two separate protective processes appear to be involved. the first, which comes into operation immediately after inoculation, is also effective against heterologous strains of vesicular stomatitis virus, rabies (another rhabdovirus), and a neurotropic strain of ...1977191397
inhibitors of foot-and-mouth disease virus. temperature-dependence of the effect of guanidine on virus suspended secondary calf kidney cells infected with foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv) the temperature range for optimal virus growth is shifted down by 3 to 5 degrees c in the presence of 1--2 mm guanidine. for some virus strains this shift is so effective that at infraoptimal temperatures virus yield in guanidine-treated cells exceeds that of the corresponding control by more than one log10. on the contrary, at supraoptimal temperatures inhibition of virus growth by the drug is strongly en ...1976187151
unified mass-action theory for virus neutralization and radioimmunology.all ideas implicit in the papers since 1953 involved in applying mass-action thermodynamics to antibody-antigen reactions are unified by the use of: (a) the intermediary concept of extent of reaction; (b) the concept of intrinsic association constant; (c) a statistical analysis for probable complexes; and (d) identification of the complex or complexes that contribute to the bioassay. several general theoretical examples are given that show the limitations of linear interpretations of equilibrium ...1976185688
localisation on foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv) of an antigenic deficiency induced by passage in bhk cells.passage of fmdv in bhk suspended cells was confirmed to induce an antigenic deficiency on the virion. by immunodiffusion experiments with complete virus, with trypsin-treated virus and with 12s virus fraction it was shown that the induced antigenic deficiency is located on the trypsin-removable part of the virion. these results were confirmed by absorption experiments.1976184763

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
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
susceptibility of a new fetal pig kidney cell line (mvpk-1) to foot-and-mouth disease virus.the mengeling-vaughn porcine kidney (mvpk-1) cell line, derived in october, 1970, from fetal pig kidneys, is susceptible to all 7 types of foot-and-mouth disease (fmd) virus. a plaque assay was developed for fmd virus that depended on washing mvpk-1 cells in serum-free medium before infection and excluding serum from 0.6% gum tragacanth overlay during plaque formation. the numbers of plaques that formed on mvpk-1 cells by a representative strain of each fmd type were comparable with the numbers ...1976185927
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
[attempts to adapt bnk cells to cultivation in suspension and study of the antigenic properties of foot-and-mouth diseases viruses obtained from them].experiments were carried out to cultivate the foot-and-mouth disease virus under laboratory conditions in a suspension of the bhk-21 cell line. results showed that the number of cells cultivated in a susfor 48 to 72 hours of incubation reaches up to 2.2 x 10(6). it was also found that certain conditions should be observed for the successful cultivation of the cells in suspension, such as aeration, ph, and respective temperature. it was demonstrated that foot-and-mouth diseases viruses obtained f ...1976189487
