[Induction of messenger RNA of cytokines by Herpes simplex virus infection in mice].


The induction of the cytokine mRNA after infection with Herpes simplex virus (HSV) was studied using RT-PCR method capable of detecting low levels of mRNA. Total RNA was prepared from spleen lymphocytes 3 h after infection with HSV-1 (+GC virulent variant and -GCr attenuated variant of Miyama strain) by acid guanidinium thiocyanate-phenol-chloroform (AGPC… (More)
