Human B-lymphotropic virus (HBLV), also known as human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) was first isolated in 1986 from AIDS patients and patients with other lymphoproliferative disorders. HBLV is distinct from known human herpesviruses, biologically, immunologically and by molecular analysis. HBLV can infect and replicate in fresh and established lines of hemopoietic(More)
Methods for the purification of enveloped HHV-6 virions and the viral DNA are presented. The viral genome is estimated to be 170,000 base pairs in size and does not appear to contain inversions due to absence of submolar bands by restriction enzyme analyses. The genomes of two independent HHV-6 isolates, HHV-6GS and HHV-6Z29, showed restriction enzyme site(More)
500 sera representing healthy blood donors and a random representation of the U.S. population collected 10 years ago were screened by ELISA for antibody reactivity with purified, disrupted HBLV virions. In each group, the ELISA results were normally distributed with no evidence of bimodality. All sera were subsequently retested after preincubation of each(More)
The present investigation was aimed to determine the general specific combining of the parents and hybrids respectively. Five parents viz. NIAB-78, Chandi, Haridost, CRIS-134 and Shahbaz were used to evolve in ten F1 hybrids through diallel mating design. The seeds of F1 hybrids along with their parents were sown in Randomized complete Block Design (RCBD)(More)
