purification of filamentous plant viruses by thin layer centrifugation.the construction of a modified thin layer ultracentrifuge rotor is described. this rotor was used in the purification of five filamentous plant viruses, viz. tmv, scmv, pvx, sgv and ymc. the purification and concentration of these viruses in their monomeric forms is hazardous when conventional "tube" rotors are used since they invariably result in dissociation and aggregation of the virus particles. using the thin layer rotor these infective agents may be concentrated in volumes of fluid equal t ...19751178651
nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal region of potato virus a rna.the sequence of the 3'-terminal region of the genome of the potato virus a (pva) was obtained from two independent cdna clones. this sequence is 1383 nucleotides long and contains an open reading frame of 1178 nucleotides, ending with the translation termination codon taa and followed by untranslated region of 205 nucleotides. since the n-terminal amino acid of the coat protein of pva was blocked, the position of the putative coat protein cleavage site has been deduced by searching for consensus ...19921604933
transient expression of the coat protein of sugarcane mosaic virus in sugarcane protoplasts and expression in escherichia coli.the coat protein (cp) of strain sc of sugarcane mosaic virus (scmv-sc) was expressed transiently in sugarcane protoplasts after electroporation with one of two plasmids encoding the cp gene. the cp gene was fused with either the cauliflower mosaic virus 35s promoter or the synthetic monocotyledon promoter "emu". the coat protein gene was also inducibly expressed in escherichia coli when fused to the trc promoter. the protein expressed in both systems had the same electrophoretic mobility and ant ...19921642548
the palindromic series i repeats in the simian cytomegalovirus major immediate-early promoter behave as both strong basal enhancers and cyclic amp response elements.a 600-base-pair (bp) enhancer region upstream from the major ie94 gene of simian cytomegalovirus (scmv) produces very strong basal expression of associated gene products. this domain consists of multiple sets of interspersed repetitive elements, including 11 copies of a conserved 16-bp palindromic sequence with the consensus ccattgacgtcaatgg. these series i repeats contain an 8-bp core tgacgtca that resembles the cyclic amp (camp) response element (cre) of cellular genes. in transient chloramphe ...19902152815
nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal region of potato virus yn rna.the sequence of the 3'-terminal 1611 nucleotides of the genome of the tobacco veinal necrosis strain of potato virus y (pvyn) was determined. the sequence revealed an open reading frame of 1285 nucleotides, of which the start was not identified, and an untranslated region of 316 nucleotides upstream of a poly(a) tract. comparison of the open reading frame with the amino-terminal sequence of the viral coat protein enabled mapping of the start of the coat protein at amino acid -267, and indicated ...19892732687

protein counterparts of human and simian cytomegaloviruses.cytomegalovirus (cmv) proteins from isolates of both human (hcmv) and simian (scmv) origin have been compared. three classes were analyzed: the immediate-early (ie) proteins, other infected-cell-specific proteins not present in virus particles, and the proteins that constitute the mature extracellular virion. comparisons were based on one- and two-dimensional (charge-size) separations in denaturing polyacrylamide gels, and on the selectivity of biosynthetic radiolabeling with [32p]orthophosphate ...19836310864
further studies on the use of protein a in immune electron microscopy for detecting virus particles.the immune electron microscopic technique which involves pre-coating electron microscope grids with protein a before coating them with the specific antiserum, has been found suitable for detecting isometric insect and plant viruses. with the three virus-antibody combinations tested, the optimum antiserum dilution for protein a plus antiserum treatment was found to be 1:100 or less, whereas in the case of grids treated with antiserum alone it ranged from 1:1000 to 1:2000 although the titre of the ...19807014777
electro-blot radioimmunoassay of virus-infected plant sap - a powerful new technique for detecting plant viruses.a new technique for detecting viruses in plant sap is described. it consists of sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of the infected plant sap, electrophoretic transfer of protein bands to activated paper by the electro-blot technique, the subsequent probing of the viral coat protein band by specific antiserum (prepared against intact virus), and detection of immune complex with 125 i-labelled protein a. the technique successfully detected tobacco mosaic virus at a sap dilu ...19827061671

human cytomegalovirus proteinase: candidate glutamic acid identified as third member of putative active-site triad.the human cytomegalovirus (hcmv) proteinase is synthesized as a 709-amino-acid precursor that undergoes at least three autoproteolytic cleavages. the mature proteinase, called assemblin, is one of the products of autoproteolysis and is composed of the first 256 amino acids of the precursor. hcmv assemblin and its homologs in other herpes group viruses contain five highly conserved domains (cd1 through cd5). an absolutely conserved serine in cd3 has been shown by site-directed mutagenesis of the ...19957769716
cytomegalovirus protein substrates are not cleaved by the herpes simplex virus type 1 proteinase.the herpesvirus maturational proteinase, assemblin, is made as a precursor that undergoes at least two autoproteolytic cleavages--one in a sequence toward its carboxyl end, called the maturational (m) site, and one in a sequence toward its midpoint, called the release (r) site. the m- and r-site sequences are both well conserved among the herpesvirus proteinase homologs, suggesting that the proteinase of one herpesvirus might be able to cleave the substrates of another. to test this possibility, ...19957983728
