Growth of rheusus cytomegalovirus in macrophages

Project: Research project

Project Details


DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this proposal is to develop rhesus cytomegalovirus (RhCMV) as model system for studying human cytomegalovirus pathogenesis. Specifically, we will be studying the growth determinants of RhCMV in monocyte-derived macrophages (also infected by human immunodeficiency virus or simian immunodeficiency virus), by using a transposon mutagenesis system and bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) technology.
