Two sibling viruses, Fr/V and Fr/B, of the subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) virus Osaka-2 strain were isolated from a small biopsy specimen of the brain of an SSPE patient by cocultivation with two different cell lines, Vero and B95a cells, respectively. These two sibling viruses differ from each other in their molecular mechanisms of defective M(More)
We determined the nucleotide sequence of the fusion (F) gene of three strains (Osaka-1, -2, and -3) of nonproductive variants of measles virus (MV). These viral strains were isolated in Osaka, Japan, from brain tissues of patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE). Phylogenetic analysis revealed a close relationship among the three strains of(More)
Synthesis of the KLMN fragment of gymnocin-A has been achieved by a [X + 2 + Y]-type convergent strategy involving the coupling of a K-ring triflate and an N-ring epoxy sulfone. Fusions of the L ring and the M ring were carried out by intramolecular SN2 substitution of a tertiary alcohol and reductive etherification to furnish the target molecule.
