Two canine isolates of simian virus 5 (SV5), termed CPI+ and CPI-, were examined for their ability to react with a bank of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) that had been previously raised against a human isolate of SV5. CPI- virus was originally isolated from the brain of a gnotobiotic dog infected with CPI+ virus and establishes persistent infections more(More)
The bidomain equations are frequently used to model the propagation of cardiac action potentials across cardiac tissue. At the whole organ level, the size of the computational mesh required makes their solution a significant computational challenge. As the accuracy of the numerical solution cannot be compromised, efficiency of the solution technique is(More)
A cDNA library was constructed in lambda gt10 using mRNA purified from cells infected with parainfluenza virus type 2 (PIV2). Virus-specific clones were identified by screening the library with 32P-labelled cDNA probes made from randomly primed vRNA. Clones containing the haemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) gene were identified by sequence comparisons with(More)

We discuss the application of the spectral element method to the monodomain and bidomain equations describing propagation of cardiac action potential. Models of cardiac electrophysiology consist of a system of partial differential equations coupled with a system of ordinary differential equations representing cell membrane dynamics. The solution of these(More)
