Abstract

SUMMARY

An infectious DNA assay has been used to investigate the size and structure of the genome of feline syncytium-forming virus (FSFV). The dose response between DNA extracted from FSFV-infected cells and plaque number on feline embryo cells followed two-hit kinetics and the mol. wt. of the proviral DNA was estimated as approx. 6 × 10.
