Abstract

Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT)-expressing negative-sense mini-genomic constructs of measles virus (MV) and rinderpest virus (RPV) were rescued by standard technology with helper plasmids expressing the nucleocapsid (N), phospho- (P) and large (L) proteins of MV, canine distemper virus (CDV) or RPV in order to determine whether the proteins of different viruses can function together. Homogeneous sets consisting of N, P and L plasmids derived from one virus were able to generate reporter gene expression from either mini-genomic construct. Heterogeneous sets of proteins from different viruses were not functional, with the exception that a low level of activity was obtained when MV N and P protein were combined with RPV L protein in the rescue of the MV mini-genomic construct, or CDV N was combined with RPV P and L in the rescue of the RPV mini-genome. However, only homogeneous sets of plasmids were able to rescue infectious virus from full-length anti-genome-expressing plasmids.
