Immunosuppression induced by measles virus (MV) is associated with unresponsiveness of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) to mitogenic stimulation ex vivo and in vitro. In mixed lymphocyte cultures and in an experimental animal model, the expression of the MV glycoproteins on the surface of UV-inactivated MV particles, MV-infected cells, or cells(More)
Recombinant measles viruses (MV) in which the authentic glycoprotein genes encoding the fusion and the haemagglutinin (H) proteins of the Edmonston (ED) vaccine strains were swapped singly or doubly for the corresponding genes of a lymphotropic MV wild-type virus (strain WTF) were used previously to investigate MV tropism in cell lines in tissue culture.(More)
Expression of the measles virus (MV) F/H complex on the surface of viral particles, infected cells, or cells transfected to express these proteins (presenter cells [PC]) is necessary and sufficient to induce proliferative arrest in both human and rodent lymphoid cells (responder cells [RC]). This inhibition was found to occur independent of apoptosis and(More)
