The three-dimensional structure of foot-and-mouth disease virus at 2.9 Å resolution
The structure of foot-and-mouth disease virus has been determined at close to atomic resolution by X-ray diffraction without experimental phase information. The virus shows similarities with otherExpand

The Family Rhabdoviridae
The occurrence of rhabdoviruses in vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant hosts makes them a subject of interest not only to animal and plant virologists, but also to those interested in comparativeExpand

The cell attachment site on foot-and-mouth disease virus includes the amino acid sequence RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartic acid).
The amino acid sequence RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartic acid) is highly conserved in the VP1 protein of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV), despite being situated in the immunodominant hypervariableExpand

Myristylation of picornavirus capsid protein VP4 and its structural significance
We have obtained evidence that poliovirus and other picornavirus particles are specifically modified by having myristic acid covalently bound to a capsid protein. The electron density mapExpand

Effective synthetic peptide vaccine for foot-and-mouth disease in swine.
We have designed a peptide-based vaccine for foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) effective in swine. The peptide immunogen has a G-H loop domain from the VP1 capsid protein of foot-and-mouth disease virusExpand

Presence of a covalently linked protein on calicivirus RNA.
The infective RNA of the calicivirus, vesicular exanthema virus, has been shown to contain a protein which is apparently linked to the RNA by a covalent bond. The protein remained bound to the RNAExpand

Epitope mapping of foot-and-mouth disease virus with neutralizing monoclonal antibodies.
Epitopes of strain A22 Iraq 24/64 of foot-and-mouth disease virus have been mapped with monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). Three methods were used: (i) an indirect ELISA using an overlapping set ofExpand

Improved immunogenicity of a peptide epitope after fusion to hepatitis B core protein
Synthetic vaccines for viral diseases can use defined regions of viral proteins as immunogens1,2: the peptide sequence of amino acids 141–160 of the VP1 protein of foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV)Expand

Assignment of the genome segments of bluetongue virus type 1 to the proteins which they encode.
The purified genomic dsRNA of bluetongue virus type 1 (BTV 1) was separated into 10 size classes by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. These genome segments were recovered individually from the gel,Expand

Antigenic Differences between Isolates of Swine Vesicular Disease Virus and their Relationship to Coxsackie B5 Virus
THERE have been several outbreaks of a vesicular disease in swine in which the causative agent was shown to be an enterovirus1–3. The first occurred in Italy in 19661 and this was followed by anExpand
