Transcription and replication signals within the negative-sense genomic RNA of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) are located at the 3' terminus. To identify these signals, we have used a transcription- and replication-competent minigenome of VSV to generate a series of deletions spanning the first 47 nucleotides at the 3' terminus of the VSV genome(More)
The humoral response to hepatitis C virus (HCV) may contribute to controlling infection. We previously isolated human monoclonal antibodies to conformational epitopes on the HCV E2 glycoprotein. Here, we report on their ability to inhibit infection by retroviral pseudoparticles incorporating a panel of full-length E1E2 clones representing the full spectrum(More)
Mechanisms of virion attachment, interaction with its receptor, and cell entry are poorly understood for hepatitis C virus (HCV) because of a lack of an efficient and reliable in vitro system for virus propagation. Infectious HCV retroviral pseudotype particles (HCVpp) were recently shown to express native E1E2 glycoproteins, as defined in part by HCV human(More)
