An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of Marek's disease virus (MDV)-specific antibodies was developed. Chicken embryo cells (CEC) or chicken kidney cells (CKC) were infected with MDV vaccine strain CVI988/Rispens, and infected-cell lysates were prepared at day 5 post-infection by freeze-thawing. Uninfected-cell lysates served as(More)
Anthraquinone (AQ) has been extensively used as a photosensitizer to study charge transfer in DNA. Near-UV photolysis of AQ induces electron abstraction in oligonucleotides leading to AQ radical anions and base radical cations. In general, this reaction is followed by the transport of base radical cations to sites of low oxidation potential, that is, GG,(More)
