Properties of transfected strains of tick-borne encephalitis virus

Abstract

Four strains of tick-borne encephalitis virus transfected by DNA from chronically infected cells were studied. The viruses induced cytopathic effect in a line of swine embryo kidney cells and inapparent infection in suckling mice. Treatment of the cells with DEAE-dextran increased infectious titres and cytopathic action of the viruses. One substrain… (More)
