Eight fatal cases of tick-borne encephalitis with an unusual hemorrhagic syndrome were identified in 1999 in the Novosibirsk Region, Russia. To study these strains, we sequenced cDNA fragments of protein E gene from six archival formalin-fixed brain samples. Phylogenetic analysis showed tick-borne encephalitis variants clustered with a Far Eastern subtype(More)
The HIV-1 epidemic in Russia is dominated by the former Soviet Union subtype A (A(FSU)) variant, but other genetic forms are circulating in the country. One is the recently described CRF63_02A1, derived from recombination between a CRF02_AG variant circulating in Central Asia and A(FSU), which has spread in the Novosibirsk region, Siberia. Here we(More)
Liposomes containing amphotericin B as ionophoric marker were used to investigate the fusion of bilayer phospholipid membranes with liposomes. It was found that latrotoxin isolated from black widow spider venom induced the fusion of liposomes with planar bilayer when liposomes and latrotoxin were administered at opposite sides of the membrane.
