Abstract

Summary

Reovirus particles have an inner coat between the capsid and the nucleic acid core. The removal of the capsid layer by proteolytic enzymes resulted in an increase in infectivity in reovirus preparations. This finding contributes to a better understanding of virus infection, stability and structure, and helps explain results of kinetic studies of activation and inactivation. Further, the findings presented have practical application in the isolation and identification of reovirus, and in the preparation of high-titred virus stocks.
