Abstract

Summary

To reveal previously suggested host-mediated repair of u.v.-induced lesions in dsRNA of encephalomyocarditis (EMC) virus, two sets of experiments have been carried out: (i) samples of dsRNA of EMC virus were irradiated with different doses of u.v. light and their infectivity was assayed in Krebs II cells, before and after conversion of dsRNA into a ss form; (ii) samples of ssRNA of EMC virus were similarly irradiated and their infectivity was assayed before and after conversion of ssRNA into a ds form. No evidence for a significant host-mediated repair of dsRNA in this virus-cell system has been obtained.
