Reovirus: evidence for a second step in the intracellular uncoating and transcriptase activation process.
Abstract Intracellular uncoating of reovirus has been reexamined. Biochemical and electron microscopy techniques were used. Present findings demonstrate that intracellular uncoating to the level ofExpand
Two modes of entry of reovirus particles into L cells.
Evidence is presented supporting the hypothesis that reovirus intermediate subviral particles (ISVP), which show increased infectivity relative to intact virions, can gain entry into host L cells byExpand
Letter: Studies on the mechanism of chemical radioprotection by dimethyl sulphoxide.
Cell killing studies on the mode of action of methotrexate on L-cells in vitro.
Studies were carried out on L-cells in vitro realting the various Methotrexate (MTX)-induced perturbations of cellular metabolism to cell killing by the drug. In the tissue culture system used inExpand
Recovery of foodborne microorganisms from potentially lethal radiation damage.
A two-stage recovery protocol was examined for microorganisms following gamma irradiation in phosphate buffer at 0 degrees C. In the first stage, survivors were recovered on basal yeast extract agarExpand
Many cell lines grown in tissue culture accumulate in a postmitotic, preDNA-synthetic part of the cell cycle when brought to a nonproliferating state by a variety of techniques (1-5) . In ourExpand
Combined effect of natural essential oils, modified atmosphere packaging, and gamma radiation on the microbial growth on ground beef.
Selected Chinese cinnamon, Spanish oregano, and mustard essential oils (EOs) were used in combination with irradiation to evaluate their ability to eliminate pathogenic bacteria and extend the shelfExpand
Comparison of Toxicity of Different Mycotoxins to Several Species of Bacteria and Yeasts: Use of Bacillus brevis in a Disc Diffusion Assay.
Twelve species of bacteria and two species of yeast were tested for sensitivity against 11 different mycotoxins using a disc diffusion assay. Among the bacterial species, Bacillus brevis appeared toExpand
Radiosensitization of Escherichia coli and Salmonella Typhi in ground beef.
The radiosensitization of two pathogenic bacteria, Escherichia coli and Salmonella Typhi, was evaluated in the presence of thyme and its principal essential oil constituents (carvacrol and thymol) inExpand
Effect of selected plant essential oils or their constituents and modified atmosphere packaging on the radiosensitivity of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella typhi in ground beef.
Twenty-six different essential oils were tested for their efficiency to increase the relative radiosensitivity of Escherichia coli and Salmonella Typhi in medium-fat ground beef (23% fat). GroundExpand
