The peptide composition of variants of Sindbis virus which differ in plaque-type, elution pattern from calcium phosphate columns and virulence in mice was analyzed. Differences in peptide number or composition were not detected in these variants. Since the Sindbis virion has an outer lipoprotein envelope which is derived at least in part from the plasma membrane of the host cell, peptide composition of purified chicken embryo membranes was analyzed. In contrast to the virions, the number of… Expand

Characterization of a Sindbis virus variant with altered host range
TLDR
Both viral glycoproteins E1 and E2 from the variant were more negatively charged than those of the standard virus but the authors were unable to find changes in tryptic peptides of the variant. Expand
Immunochemical studies of Sindbis virus variants
TLDR
It is suggested that the virus core has a preferential affinity for those components of the plasma membranes which have an isoelectric point at pH 3.6. Expand

Separation of sindbis virus plaque-type variants by calcium phosphate chromatography
TLDR
Differences in elution profiles obtained from chromatography on calcium phosphate indicated that Sindbis virus variants differ in surface structure or composition. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the mP and MP virions differ in surface structure and composition of the capsid or of the envelope, which may account for the difference in the apparent buoyant density. Expand

STUDIES ON THE STRUCTURE OF A HEMAGGLUTINATING COMPONENT OF A GROUP A ARBO VIRUS (SINDBIS).
TLDR
Some immunological properties and the stability of the hemagglutinating activity of Tween-ether treated preparations have been determined and some forms revealed' the characteristic surface structure of the mature and “incomplete” virus. Expand
THE SOURCE OF THE RIBONUCLEIC ACID AND PHOSPHOLIPID OF SINDBIS VIRUS.
TLDR
It is concluded that the viral phospholipid is largely derived from preexisting cellular phosphatides, which appears to be synthesized de novo in Sindbis virus. Expand
Selection of antigenic mutants of influenza viruses. Isolation and peptide mapping of their hemagglutination proteins.
TLDR
Antigenic mutants of the swine and BEL strains of influenza A virus were isolated after serial passage of these viruses in the presence of sublimiting concentrations of homologous antibody of low avidity, suggesting that antigenic variation among influenza viruses is related to changes in the amino acid sequence of their antigenic proteins.

Replication of Semliki Forest virus: an electron microscopic study.
TLDR
During the period of rapid production of virus, individual free virus nucleoids are found scattered in the cytoplasmic matrix, and nucleoids aggregate around vacuoles and in paracrystalline arrays, but such accumulations do not appear to have a functional role in the production of Semliki Forest virus particles.
