Rubella virus was rapidly concentrated and purified using polyethylene glycol 6000 as the precipitating agent. Electrophoresis in slab gels defined three structural proteins present in equimolar amounts, with mol. wt. of 59000 (E1), 43000 to 48000 (heterogeneous E2) and 34000 (core protein, C). E1 and E2 were glycosylated; different distributions of labelled carbohydrates within the broad band of E2 indicated that the slower migrating region was enriched in complex oligosaccharides. In infected… CONTINUE READING
