Coxsackievirus B3 from an infectious cDNA copy of the genome is cardiovirulent in mice


A coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) cDNA clone, upon transfection of HeLa cells, produces CVB3 capable of induction of cardiac inflammation in C3H/He mice by day 8 post inoculation (p.i.). Liver and serum are cleared of CVB3 by day 8 p.i., but CVB3 persists in the heart through day 14. The nucleotide sequence and the predicted amino acid sequence of this clone have… (More)
