SVap15/21, a strain of Sindbis virus (SV) derived from our standard laboratory strain of SV (SVstd) after repeated passage on Aedes albopictus cells, grows normally in mosquito cells but is host restricted (hr) in vertebrate cells. It is also temperature sensitive (ts) and produces pinpoint plaques on vertebrate cells (sp). E2 glycoprotein of SVstd differs… CONTINUE READING
