Abstract

Summary

Synthetic peptides have been made corresponding to the C-terminal portion of each of the three presumptive genome-linked proteins (VPgs) of foot-and-mouth disease virus type A. Antisera against each of these peptides efficiently precipitated only the homologous VPg, and the reactions were inhibited by prior absorption with homologous, but not heterologous synthetic peptide. The peptide antisera precipitated a number of proteins from infected cell extracts with mol. wt. of 100, 84, 56, 36, 27, 25 and 20, all × 10; all these reactions were inhibited by absorption with homologous peptide, indicating that they were probable precursors of VPg. The relationship between these proteins is at present unclear.
