The cell line AR230 was established from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells of a patient with chronic myeloid leukemia and t(9;22) translocation bearing a variant type of BCR/ABL rearrangement. AR230 expresses a BCR/ABL fusion protein with a molecular mass of 230 kilodaltons (kDa) due to the insertion of 180 amino acids encoded by 3' exons of BCR (b4 to(More)
Mumps viruses show diverse cytopathic effects (CPEs) of infected cells and viral plaque formation (no CPE or no plaque formation in some cases) depending on the viral strain, highlighting the difficulty in mumps laboratory studies. In our previous study, a new sialidase substrate, 2-(benzothiazol-2-yl)-4-bromophenyl(More)
Influenza A and B viruses possess a neuraminidase protein that shows sialidase activity. Influenza virus-specific neuraminidase inhibitors (NAIs) are commonly used for clinical treatment of influenza. However, some influenza A and B viruses that are resistant to NAIs have emerged in nature. NAI-resistant viruses have been monitored in public hygiene surveys(More)
