Sorry, no etymologies found.
Experiments on the relations between the temperature sensitivity of viral development and neurovirulence led him to consider the problem of viral infection.
Examples of such genes include thymidine kinase (deleted in thymidine kinase defective virus), and the neurovirulence genes ICP34. 5 and ICP6 (both deleted in the multimutated virus called G207).
Sequence analyses show a high degree of nucleotide diversity between the outbreak isolates, consistent with multiple, extensive chains of transmission and incomplete case ascertainment The Egypt outbreak was associated with type 2 which is the most transmissible of the Sabin strains The neurovirulence of two isolates from the outbreak was measured in transgenic mice and found to be similar to the prototype wild type 2 strain The distribution of reported cVDPV cases in Egypt (grey bars) is shown on the left hand axis.
