The mechanism of enterovirus inactivation by marine bacteria was investigated using poliovirus type 1 as a model virus and with strains of Pseudomonas and Vibrio isolated from the marine environment. Treatment of virus with cell-free filtrates from late log phase bacterial cultures produced alterations in the viral capsid as shown by a reduction in efficiency of adsorption to host cells, increased sensitivity to ribonuclease, and by the release of ribonucleic acid from the treated virions… CONTINUE READING
