The functional helper T cell line Vir-2, derived from a PR8 (H1N1) influenza virus-immunized BALB/c mouse, proliferates in response to syngeneic antigen-presenting cells and naturally occurring strains of subtype H1 human influenza virus from 1934-1957 and 1977-1980 isolates. A conserved region of the hemagglutinin molecule around amino acid position 115 in(More)
The contribution of viral infectivity to the expression of MHC class II-restricted T cell determinants was studied. A murine I-Ed-restricted T cell hybridoma recognizing the neuraminidase (NA) glycoprotein of influenza PR8 virus was stimulated strongly by infectious virus but failed to recognize antigen introduced on noninfectious virions. Recognition(More)
Monoclonal antibody to type-A influenza virus matrix (M)-protein was used to quantitate the appearance of M-protein on abortively infected P815 cells. After 16 h of infection with different type-A viruses, only a low amount of M-protein appears on the surface of infected cells (approximately 10(3) site/cell) in contrast to approximately 10(5) hemagglutinin(More)
