Effect of dimethyl sulfoxide on interaction of human cytomegalovirus with host cell: conversion of a nonproductive state of cell to a productive state for virus replication.

Abstract

The effect of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) on the interaction of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) with host cell was studied. Confluent state of a human rhabdomyosarcoma cell line (A204) showed a much lower susceptibility to HCMV infection when compared to that in subconfluent actively growing cell cultures. Treatment of confluent cultures with DMSO, however… (More)
