Characterization of infectious particles of grass carp reovirus by treatment with proteases

Abstract

Proteolytic cleavages play an important role in reovirus infection during entry into cells. The effects of protease digestion on the morphology, infectivity and polypeptide composition of grass carp reovirus (GCRV) were investigated. Following treatment with chymotrypsin, the different subviral particles of GCRV were isolated using density gradient… (More)
