The agglutination of chicken erythrocytes by Lymantria dispar nuclear polyhedrosis virus polyhedrin has been shown to provide specific virus identification. Selected mono- and oligosaccharides, present in blood group substances, were assayed by the Land-steiner hapten inhibition technique for specific inhibition of polyhedrin hemagglutination. N-acetylgalactosamine and N-acetylglucosamine inhibit to the greatest extent; galactosamine, glucosamine and fucose to a lesser extent. The hapten… Expand

Agglutination of vertebrate erythrocytes by the granulosis virus of Plodia interpunctella.
TLDR
It is believed that although GV binds to cells under both acidic and alkaline conditions, hemagglutination is facilitated by aggregation of GV at low pH. Expand
On the origin of the polyhedral protein of the nuclear polyhedrosis virus of Autographa californica
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to investigate the origin of the polyhedral protein of the nuclear polyhedrosis virus of the alfalfa looper, Autographa californica (AcNPV), one of the best characterized viruses of the family Baculoviridae, and to demonstrate that this protein is coded for by the viral genome.

A synergistic factor of an insect granulosis virus agglutinates insect cells
The synergistic factor (SF), a lipoprotein which enhances in vivo and in vitro baculovirus infections, occurs in the matrix of the occlusion body (capsule) of a granulosis virus of theExpand
Comparative Genome Sequence Analysis Reveals the Extent of Diversity and Conservation for Glycan-Associated Proteins in Burkholderia spp.
TLDR
The genome sequence comparisons revealed insights into species-specific gene acquisitions through gene transfers, identified an S-layer protein, and proposed that significantly reactive surface proteins are associated to sugar moieties as a potential means to circumvent host defense mechanisms.
