The nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal portion of the tobacco etch virus (TEV) genome was determined. The 2324-nucleotide sequence represented approximately one-fourth of the TEV genome and included the capsid protein gene and flanking regions. An open reading frame of 2135 nucleotides and an untranslated region of 189 nucleotides adjacent to a(More)
The sequence of the 1491 nucleotides found at the 3' end of the genome of the highly aphid-transmissible (HAT) isolate of tobacco etch virus (TEV) has been determined. The nucleotide sequence of the capsid protein gene has been identified and compared with the corresponding region of the not-aphid-transmissible (NAT) isolate of TEV and with pepper mottle(More)
Studies over the past few years have demonstrated the importance of linker or adaptor proteins in the signaling pathways activated by the B cell antigen-receptor. These proteins direct the appropriate subcellular localization of enzymatic complexes, amplify signaling pathways and integrate the functions of distinct signaling complexes. Many of the recently(More)
Although two deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) viruses, pseudorabies (PsRV) and vaccinia, are as susceptible as a ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus, vesicular stomatitis (VSV), to interferon when tested in chicken or mouse cells, they are refractory to inhibition in interferon-treated primary rabbit kidney cells and in a continuous line (RK-13) of rabbit kidney cells.(More)
Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTCase) has been purified from porcine liver by a simple four-step procedure that included chromatography on an affinity column to which the transition-state analogue, delta-N-phosphonacetyl-L-ornithine (PALO), was covalently bound. The procedures employed yielded an enzyme which was purified some 260-fold and was judged to be(More)
Direct intramuscular injection (IM) of adeno-associated virus (AAV) has been proven a safe and potentially efficient procedure for gene therapy of many genetic diseases including hemophilia B. It is, however, contentious whether high antigen level induces tolerance or immunity to coagulation factor IX (FIX) following IM of AAV. We recently reported(More)
Noncytocidal persistent infections at 37 C of mouse L cells (Lvsv) with infective B particles of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) could be established only in the presence of large numbers of defective interfering (DI) particles. Under these conditions, there was a rapid spontaneous selection of temperature-sensitive (ts) virus. At 10 days there was an(More)
Regulatory T cells play a major role in induction and maintenance of immune tolerance and immunological homeostasis. A variety of strategies have been attempted to induce regulatory T cells for control of unwanted, adverse immunity in autoimmune diseases, transplantation as well as gene transfer. We recently reported efficient induction of immune tolerance(More)
In previous studies on the formation of Lymantria dispar nuclear polyhedrosis virus (LdMNPV) few polyhedra (FP) mutants, several polyhedron formation mutants (PFM) were identified that appeared to be unique. These viral mutants are being characterized to investigate the processes of polyhedron formation and virion occlusion. LdMNPV isolate PFM-1 is one of(More)
