Addition of cyclic AMP causes disorder in the multicellular stage of a number of species of cellular slime molds. In those which produce fruits with cellular stalks, the addition of cyclic AMP stimulates prestalk cells to differentiate into mature stalk cells. Prespore cells do not differentiate into spores under the influence of cyclic AMP, most degenerate(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Bagaza virus (BAGV), a flavivirus synonymous with Israel turkey meningoencephalitis virus, has been found to circulate in India. BAGV has recently been held responsible for inducing febrile illness in humans and causing unusually high mortality to wild birds in Spain.

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Studies have shown that certain flaviviruses influence susceptibility of mosquitoes by inhibiting/enhancing replication of important flaviviruses. Hence, a study was designed to determine whether Bagaza virus (BAGV), a flavivirus isolated from Culex tritaeniorhynchus mosquitoes in India, alters susceptibility of Cx. tritaeniorhynchus(More)
