Rubella virus capsid protein induces apoptosis in transfected RK13 cells.


Rubella virus is an enveloped positive-strand RNA virus that can cause mild to severe birth defects or death in an infected fetus. RV induction of programmed cell death, demonstrated in cell culture, has been implicated in the pathogenesis. The timing of apoptosis, 48 h p.i., suggested that accumulation of RV structural proteins might induce cell death in… (More)
