70S tight-couple ribosomes from Escherichia coli were cross-linked by using the bifunctional reagent phenyl-diglyoxal (PDG). The reaction was stopped after 4-h incubation while still in the linear range. In comparison with untreated ribosomes, 30% of those treated with PDG were shown, by sucrose gradient experiments, not to be separable into their subunits,(More)
BACKGROUND Mosquito-borne Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) has recently re-emerged globally. The epidemic East/Central/South African (ECSA) strains have spread for the first time to Asia, which previously only had endemic Asian strains. In Malaysia, the ECSA strain caused an extensive nationwide outbreak in 2008, while the Asian strains only caused limited(More)
The antibody isotype IgM appears earlier than IgG, within days of onset of symptoms, and is important during the early stages of the adaptive immune response. Little is known about the functional role of IgM during infection with chikungunya virus (CHIKV), a recently reemerging arbovirus that has caused large global outbreaks. In this study, we studied(More)
