    J Med Virol 76:129-36. 2005
    ..The antigen ELISA was highly specific to the homotypic strains, allowing assignment of a strain to a Norovirus genetic cluster within a genogroup...
  56. ncbi request reprint Higher frequency of premature stop codon mutations at vpu gene of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 CRF01_AE compared with those of other subtypes
    Satoshi Komoto
    Department of Virology, Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Osaka University, Suita, Osaka 565 0871, Japan
    Microbes Infect 7:139-47. 2005
    ..This finding may indicate the possibility that the more abundant population of HIV-1 CRF01_AE is able to induce apoptosis in CD4+ T lymphocytes than the populations of other subtypes...
  57. pmc The vpu protein of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 plays a protective role against virus-induced apoptosis in primary CD4(+) T lymphocytes

    J Virol 77:10304-13. 2003
    ..In contrast, the apoptosis induction abilities of these vpu mutants were lower in human T-cell line MT-4. Thus, the Vpu protein of HIV-1 could play a protective role against virus-induced apoptosis in primary CD4(+) T lymphocytes...
