Project: Isolation of a porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus receptor coding and establishing of cell lines expressing this receptor.
- project duration
- 01-FEB-98 – 31-DEC-00
- The project comprises : 1) Purification of the receptor only present in porcine alveolar macrophages. 2) Characterisation of the receptor protein. 3) Isolation of the cDNA coding for this receptor by expression cloning techniques or using a DNA tester sequence. 4) Establishing cell lines, expressing the receptor, that can be used for production of virus and diagnosis.
