Abstract:

The synthesis of virus-specific proteins in a cell-free system containing homologous chick embryo and heterologous Escherichia coli ribosomes was comparatively studied in the presence of RNA from Sendai virus, Newcastle disease virus and Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus. In both systems synthesis of proteins having similar electrophoretic mobility took place in the presence of virus templates. Moreover, based on the reaction of the corresponding virus-specific sera, virus proteins which are fully competent immunologically are synthesized. Author
