Determinants of organ tropism of sendai virus.


Wild-type Sendai virus is exclusively pneumotropic in mice. Protease activation mutants, ts-f1 and F1-R, were isolated from persistently infected tissue culture cells. Additional mutants were isolated from wild-type Sendai virus with phenotypes similar to the pantropic mutant, F1-R. The genome of the mutants was sequenced and mutations were revealed in… (More)
