Journal of Virology. 1993; Vol. 67 ( 11 ) : p. 6567-75. (Journal)
Abstract :
Mouse-adapted dengue type 4 virus (DEN4) strain H241 is highly neurovirulent for mice, whereas its non-mouse-adapted parent is rarely neurovirulent. The genetic basis for the neurovirulence of the mouseadapted mutant was studied by comparing intratypic chimeric viruses that contained the three struc . . .
