Interferon-mediated self-limiting growth of respiratory syncytial virus in mouse embryo cells.

Abstract

The growth of respiratory syncytial (RS) virus in primary mouse embryo (ME) cells was investigated. The virus yields in ME cells were markedly lower if compared with those in HEp-2 cells, which are fully permissive for RS virus, and a remarkable production of interferon (IFN) was found in the early period of infection of the former cells. The virus yields… (More)
