Characterization of membrane components of the erythrocyte involved in vesicular stomatitis virus attachment and fusion at acidic pH.
Goose erythrocyte membranes were isolated and tested for their ability to compete with red cell receptors for vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) attachment and fusion at acidic pH. Crude membranes,Expand

Plant metabolites. Structure and in vitro antiviral activity of quinovic acid glycosides from Uncaria tomentosa and Guettarda platypoda.
A reinvestigation of the bark of Uncaria tomentosa afforded, in addition to the major quinovic acid glycosides 1-3, three further glycosides 4-6. The structures were elucidated by spectral andExpand

Effect of concanavalin A on the early events of rabies virus infection of CER cells.
The effect of concanavalin A on rabies virus infection of CER cells was investigated. Pretreatment of CER cells with concanavalin A inhibited cellular susceptibility to rabies virus infection. TheExpand

Inhibition of Sindbis virus replication by cyclopentenone prostaglandins: a cell-mediated event associated with heat-shock protein synthesis.
Cyclopentenone prostaglandins (PGs) have been shown to inhibit the replication of several DNA and RNA viruses. Here we report on the effect of prostaglandin A1 (PGA1) on the multiplication of aExpand

Synthesis and Anti-Rhinovirus Activity of 2-Styrylchromones
2-Styrylchromones were synthesized as vinylogues of 2-phenylchromones (flavones), a broad class of anti-rhinovirus compounds. The antiviral activity of 2-styrylchromones andExpand

Constituents of Eriobotrya japonica. A study of their antiviral properties.
The CHCl3 extract of Eriobotrya japonica from an Italian source was shown to contain four new triterpene esters, namely, 23-trans-p-coumaroyltormentic acid [1], 23-cis-p-coumaroyltormentic acid [2],Expand
