Effect of environmental pH on adenovirus-associated virus

Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine
F B Johnson, A S Bodily


The influence of environmental pH on AAV was studied in infectious virus titrations, induction of CF antigens production of infectious virus, induction of immunofluorescent stainable antigen, and aggregation of the viral particles. The pH of the medium was found to influence the titer of virus stocks in that less virus was registered at acid pH's, giving differences of up to 105 TCID50 in HEK and HEp-2 cells. Less infectious virus was produced in KB cells, and decreased amounts of CF antigen appeared at acid pH's. However, increased levels of detectable intracellular FA antigen appeared at acid pH's. Electron microscopic examination of AAV particles negatively stained at various pH's showed increasingly large aggregates of particles as the pH was lowered. Under the acid conditions studied, the adenovirus helper and cell activities were only slightly suppressed, with the greatest effect due to aggregation of the virus particles.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
