Chemical crosslinking of tick-borne encephalitis virus and its subunits.


Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus was crosslinked by dimethylsuberimidate (DMS) and the cleavable dimetyl 3,3'-dithiobispropionimidate (DTBP). Analysis by SDS-PAGE revealed polymers of the virus core protein V2 and the glyco protein V3 in continuously decreasing amounts. The formation of higher order complexes was not favoured over the formation of lower… (More)
