Two monoclonal antibodies raised against Sindbis virus were shown to be specific for the envelope glycoprotein E1 by radioimmunoprecipitation (RIP). They had a number of contrasting biological properties. One of them was capable of neutralizing virus infectivity and inhibiting haemagglutination, while the other had no significant neutralizing or(More)
Immune suppression during measles accounts for most of the morbidity and mortality associated with the virus infection. Experimental study of this phenomenon has been hampered by the lack of a suitable animal model. We have used the cotton rat to demonstrate that mitogen-induced proliferation of spleen cells from measles virus-infected animals is impaired.(More)
The Lister strain of vaccinia virus was used to construct a recombinant that expressed the nucleocapsid gene of Lassa virus. Guineapigs immunised with the recombinant virus were protected against challenge with Lassa virus, whereas control animals showed the usual disease course, including pyrexia, anorexia, viraemia, and death. These data indicate not only(More)
A monoclonal antibody (30.2) raised against Sindbis virus is able to precipitate both E1 and PE2 from [35S]methionine-labelled infected cells solubilized with non-ionic detergent. Addition of SDS to the lysate abolishes the precipitation of PE2 without affecting that of E1, thus demonstrating that the antibody is specific for E1. Other Sindbis E1-specific(More)
This study evaluated the effectiveness of a mercury switch as a self-monitoring device to improve the sitting posture of an adult male. The participant in this study was a 31 year old man who was blind, nonambulatory, and who had been classified in the moderate range of intellectual functioning and in the severe range of adaptive functioning due to physical(More)

The neurofilament L/68 protein (NF-L/68) gene is expressed in the immature Schwann cell phenotype but suppressed after myelin-formation. We have investigated conditions which regulate the activity of the NF-L/68 promoter in green fluorescent protein reporter constructs expressed in the immortal rat Schwann cell strain SCL4.1/F7 in coculture with neurons.(More)
