Production of labile Newcastle disease virus progeny after infection of chicken embryo cells in the presence of caffeine.


A study was undertaken to examine the effects of caffeine on Newcastle disease virus (NDV) infection of chicken embryo cells. Addition of 10 mM caffeine to the growth medium produced 95% reduction in progeny synthesis, 63% reduction in RNA synthesis, 45% reduction in protein synthesis, and 25% reduction in hemadsorption ability in NDV-infected cultures when… (More)
