The vaccinia virus E3L gene codes for double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) binding proteins which can prevent activation of the dsRNA-dependent, interferon-induced protein kinase PKR. Activated PKR has been shown to induce apoptosis in HeLa cells. HeLa cells infected with vaccinia virus with the E3L gene deleted have also been shown to undergo apoptosis, whereas(More)
The competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist D-2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoate and two other five-atom linkage (C-5) omega-phosphono-alpha-amino acid analogs reduced [3H]glycine binding, in a dose-dependent manner, to a maximum of 45-55%, whereas seven-atom linkage (C-7) analogs had significantly less effect. The IC50 of the C-5 antagonists(More)
