  • Quantitative analysis demonstrated inefficiency in a number of steps including virus uptake and internalization, translocation of nucleocapsid across the nuclear membrane and antigen expression from intranuclear viral DNA [9].
  • CsCl gradient centrifugation showed no clear difference between mutant and wild-type virus with respect to the ratios of enveloped virus and nucleocapsid particles in hepatocyte culture supernatants [10].
