Measles virus and C3 binding sites are distinct on membrane cofactor protein (CD46).
The human complement regulatory protein membrane cofactor protein (CD46) is the cellular receptor for measles virus (MV), whereas decay accelerating factor (DAF; CD55), a structurally similarExpand

Comparison of Automated and Manual Nucleic Acid Extraction Methods for Detection of Enterovirus RNA
ABSTRACT Automated nucleic acid extraction is an attractive alternative to labor-intensive manual methods. We compared two automated methods, the BioRobot M48 instrument (Qiagen, Inc.) and MagNA PureExpand

Application of the Hybrid Capture 2 assay to squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck
A growing proportion of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). In light of the unique natural history and prognosis of HPV‐related HNSCCs, routineExpand

The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 polyadenylylation signal: a 3' long terminal repeat element upstream of the AAUAAA necessary for efficient polyadenylylation.
Several polyadenylylation (PA) signals containing elements upstream of the AAUAAA have recently been characterized. Similar to PA elements found downstream of the AAUAAA, the upstream elementsExpand

Clinical Isolates of Measles Virus Use CD46 as a Cellular Receptor
ABSTRACT Laboratory strains of measles viruses (MV), such as Edmonston and Halle, use the complement regulatory protein CD46 as a cell surface receptor. The receptor usage of clinical isolates of MV,Expand

Production of atypical measles in rhesus macaques: Evidence for disease mediated by immune complex formation and eosinophils in the presence of fusion-inhibiting antibody
The severe disease atypical measles occurred when individuals immunized with a poorly protective inactivated vaccine contracted measles, and was postulated to be due to a lack of fusion-inhibitingExpand

Recombinant Measles Viruses with Mutations in the C, V, or F Gene Have Altered Growth Phenotypes In Vivo
ABSTRACT An understanding of the determinants of measles virus (MV) virulence has been hampered by the lack of an experimental model of infection. We have previously demonstrated that virulenceExpand

Measles virus infection of B lymphocytes permits cellular activation but blocks progression through the cell cycle.
Measles virus infection of unstimulated B lymphocytes suppresses both proliferation and differentiation into immunoglobulin-secreting cells. However, mitogenic stimulation of these infected cellsExpand
