A small glycoprotein (E3) was purified from the culture fluid of Sindbis virus-infected primary chick embryo fibroblasts. Tryptic peptide mapping and pulse-chase studies verified that this protein was produced as a by-product of the cleavage of the precursor protein PE2 to produce the envelope glycoprotein E2. A 2600-fold purification was achieved via a… CONTINUE READING
