Cloning Information

Resource Information

  • Supplemental Documents
  • A portion of this plasmid was derived from a plasmid made by
    Fusion glycoproteins are composed of parts of rabies virus glycoprotein (RV-G) and vesicular stomatitis virus glycoprotein (VSV-G). In three glycoproteins including FuG-B, FuG-C, and FuG-E, the sequences of RV-G are derived from the challenged virus standard (CVS) strain of rabies virus, whereas those in FuG-B2 are from Pasteur virus (PV) strain of the virus. The CVS RV-G cDNA was provided by Dr. K. Morimoto at Yasuda Women’s University (Hiroshima, Japan) (ref: MORIMOTO, K., HOOPER, D.C., CARBAUGH, H., FU, Z.F., KOPROWSKI, H., and DIETZSCHOLD, B. Rabies virus quasispecies: implications for pathogenesis. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 95, 3152-3156, 1998), and the PV RV-G cDNA was chemically synthesized on the basis of the GenBank data (accession number: GU992322). The VSV-G cDNA was provided by Dr. A. Nienhuis at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
