1992, 7(2): 124

Up to present, few was reported about the natural infection of murineeytomegalovirus(MCMV) in laboratory mice. Based on the experimental infection of MCMV, we made a survey on the natural infection of MCMV in 10 common used strains of mice It was found that of 334 samples of submaxllary gland homogenate, none were positive for viral isolation, whereas specific anti-MCMV antibodies were found in 10.9-87.50% of different strains of mice. There were tendencies of increase in antibody positive rates as the mice...

1992, 7(2): 149

A sensitive and simplified method of ~(125)I-labeled peptide mapping was used to estimate the rates of the haemagglutinin(HA) mutation of 5 strains of influenza Al viruses and 5 strains of influenza A3 viruses. It could be calculated that the average rates of HA mutation for these two subtypes of viruses are 0.47% and 0.44% per year respectively. The strains isolated in 1986 showed some specialities as compared with the average rates of HA mutation The relation between the rates of HA mutation and the epide...

CHEN Sheng-Min, GUO Hui-Yu

1992, 7(2): 166

In this study we developed a method for characterization of the leetin binding properties of D2V by a panal of lectins with different sugar specificity. The dengue-2 virus(D2V) (New Guinea C strain) was cultured in Aedes alhopietus C6/36 cells. The virus-speeific and cellular proteins of the infected and mock-infected cell lysates were separated by diseontinous SDS-PAGE and transferred electrophoretically onto NC sheet. The blots were then probed with 12 kinds of biotinylated leetius(Con A, PSA, LCA, SBA, D...

The immunized spleen cells were fused with SP2/0 myeloma cells which were obtained from the SP2/0 solid tumor grown in BALB/C mice. Thirteen hybridoma cell lines secreting antiRSV monoclonal antibody(MeAb) were established. The chromosome number of these cell lines was ranged from 94—104 and the seerated MeAbs belonged to routine IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b subclasses. The ascites antibody titer was from 1: 1...
