Transplacental transmission of human polyomavirus BK
The presence of BK virus (BKV) and JC virus (JCV) in autopsy materials (placenta, brain, and kidney) of aborted fetuses was investigated by PCR using two sets of primers, specific for the regulatoryExpand

Involvement of gangliosides in the interaction between BK virus and Vero cells
SummaryBK virus infectivity was inhibited by gangliosides extracted from Vero cells and by standard preparations of different gangliosides. Gangliosides were also able to restore the susceptibilityExpand

Detection of BK polyomavirus genotypes in healthy and HIV-positive children
Urine samples from 211 community children (3–7 years age), from 33 HIV type-1 infected children and from 56 HIV- negative children were collected and analyzed for the presence of BK virus (BKV) DNAExpand

Detection of JC and BK viral genome in specimens of HIV-1 infected subjects.
Human polyomaviruses JC and BK are ubiquitous in healthy human adults, persist as latent viruses and can be reactivated in the immunodeficient host giving different pathologies. Due to theExpand

Identification of a new control region in the genome of the DDP strain of BK virus isolated from PBMC
The various strains of human polyomavirus BK (BKV) show a marked heterogeneity in the noncoding control region (NCCR), which includes the origin of replication and the regulatory region for early andExpand

Different sensitivity of hemagglutinating and hemolytic activities of Sendai virus to non-antibody inhibitors.
Research was carried out in order to verify if some components of human serum, which are capable of inhibiting the hemagglutination by Sendai virus, are active even towards the hemolysis by the sameExpand
