Organotypic cultures of mouse spinal cord with attached dorsal root ganglia, which contain both central and peripheral myelin in the one unit of tissue, were infected with HSV 1 or HSV 2 and studied using electron microscopy. Intranuclear viral nucleocapsids and intracytoplasmic enveloped particles were found in the Schwann cells associated with peripheral(More)
In an organotypic nerve cell culture system, all cells in both the central and the peripheral nervous system (CNS, PNS) components supported replication of herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV 1, HSV 2). In HSV 1 infection, cellular response was particularly characterized by the formation of small syncytia (which involved neurons) and by the presence of(More)
Mature mouse spinal cord-ganglion cultures, which contain both peripheral and central nervous system as one unit, were infected with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV 1) or type 2 (HSV 2) and observed by bright field microscopy for up to 72 hours. There was degeneration of both central and peripheral myelin in cultures infected with either virus, but the(More)
The replication of measles and SSPE viruses in enucleate BSC-1 cells was measured by plaque assay, and the synthesis of virus-specific antigen was measured by indirect immunofluorescence. Titres of infectious virus produced in enucleate cells at 24 hours post inoculation (p.i.) were consistently 100-fold less, and the number of enucleate cells containing(More)
