Recombinant vaccinia viruses which express MHV-JHM proteins: protective immune response and the influence of vaccination on coronavirus-induced encephalomyelitis.

Abstract

Vaccinia-virus (VV) recombinants encoding either the nucleocapsid (N) or the spike (S) protein of MHV-JHM were constructed to study the role of the immune response against defined coronavirus antigens. For the S-protein, a fusogenic (Sfus+) or non fusogenic variant (Sfus-) of the gene was inserted into the VV genome. A strong protection against acute… (More)
