Apoptosis in cultured cells infected with feline calicivirus.


Caliciviruses are important pathogens of man and animals; feline calicivirus (FCV) is responsible for an acute upper respiratory tract disease in cats. To date, little is known about the mechanism of cell damage induced by these viruses. We set out to determine if apoptosis played any role in cell death in FCV infection of cultured cells. We demonstrate… (More)
