Abstract

The production of infectious vesicular stomatitis (VSV) and Newcastle disease virus can be completely inhibited by 2-deoxy-d-glucose in pyruvate-containing medium, if virus either grown in pyruvate-containing medium or dialyzed against phosphate-buffered saline is used for infection. Under these conditions, the synthesis of all VSV proteins is reduced. VSV RNA, which is synthesized at reduced rates, seems to be unstable. The effect is completely reversible. If virus grown in glucose-containing medium is used for infection, the production of both viruses is not significantly inhibited by 2-deoxy-d-glucose. Under these conditions the production of the VSV glycoprotein is specifically impaired, but does not lead to a marked reduction of the yield of infectious virus.
