The sub-genomic replicon of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus (Far-Eastern subtype) was packaged into infectious particles by providing the viral structural proteins in trans. Sequential transfection of TBE replicon RNA and a plasmid that expressed the structural proteins led to the secretion of infectious particles that contained TBE replicon RNA. The(More)
We have previously reported a system for packaging tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus subgenomic replicon RNAs into single-round infectious virus-like particles (VLPs) by using in trans expression of viral C/prM/E structural proteins. In this study, the trans-packaging system was applied to the generation of chimeric VLPs with mosquito-borne Japanese(More)
