ABSTRACT Summary Two bullet-shaped viruses, isolated from eels, have been characterized physico-chemically, and their serological relationship to the other fish rhabdoviruses has been determined. Preparations of each virus contain truncated as well as bullet-shaped particles and the RNAs from these sediment at 18S and 4IS, respectively. As determined by PAGE, the virion polypeptide patterns for both viruses were indistinguishable, but were found to differ from those of the other fish rhabdoviruses. Using vesicular stomatitis virus polypeptides as internal markers, the molecular weights of the eel virus polypeptides were calculated to be > 150,000, 64,000, 49,000, 47,000 and 26,000. The two viruses are closely related to each other antigenically, but show no relationship to the other fish rhabdoviruses in neutralization tests.Copyright © 1980 S. Karger AG, Basel

    ABSTRACT: A novel large strain sensor has been developed using a silicone/nickel nanostrand/nickel coated carbon fiber nanocomposite system. The effect of conductive filler volume fraction on the piezoresistive response of the nanocomposite sensor has been studied in order to determine the optimal composition for use in large strain/motion sensing applications. Electromechanical testing of various compositions revealed that optimum performance was achieved using 11vol% nickel nanostrands with 2vol% nickel coated carbon fiber in the silicone matrix. Initial results indicate that this nanocomposite is capable of sensing strains of over 40% elongation.

    ABSTRACT: Antisera raised in rabbits against viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) and infectious haematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) contained high levels of binding antibody which made possible the development of rapid immunoassays. These were used to detect VHS and IHN viral antigen in cell culture and in extracts of infected fry. Virus could be detected in cell culture before any cytopathic effect was noticed. The ELISA for VHSV was most sensitive and detected antigens in cell culture after only 12 h. Both assays were specific for their respective viruses and results were obtained in under 2 h.ZusammenfassungDer Schnellnachweis von VHS-und IHN-Viren mittels des ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay)Von Kaninchen gewonnene Antiseren gegen das Virus der viralen hämorrhagischen Septikämie (VHSV) und das Virus der infektiösen hämatopoetischen Nekrose (IHNV) enthielten hohe Anteile bindender Antikörper, die die Entwicklung schneller Immunreaktionen ermöglichten. Sie wurden zum Nachweis von VHS-und IHN-Virusantigen in Zeükulturen und Extrakten aus infizierten Fischen verwendet. Viren konnten in Zellkulturen nachgewiesen werden, noch ehe irgendwelche zytopathischen Effekte zu beobachten waren. Der ELISA auf VHSV war am empfindlichsten, das Antigen konnte in Zellkulturen schon nach 12 Stunden nachgewiesen werden. Die Ergebnisse des virusspezifischen Testverfahrens lagen bereits nach weniger als zwei Stunden vor.RésuméLe décèlement rapide des virus de SH V et de NHI par le test immunosorbant lié aux enzymes (ELISA)Des antiséra obtenus sur le lapin afin de lutter contre la septicémic hémorragique virale (SHV) et le virus de la nécrose hématopoiétique infectieuse se sont avérés contenir de hautes teneurs en anticorps liants qui ont permis d'élaborer des tests immunologiques rapides. Ces tests ont servi à déceler les antigènes viraux de la SHV et de la NHI dans des cultures de cellules ainsi que dans des extraits de nourrains. Le virus a pu être décelé dans la culture de cellules avant qu'un quelconque phénomène cytopathique ne soit observé. L'ELISA (test immunosorbant lié aux enzymes) de la SHV s'est avérée la plus sensible à déceler des antigènes dans la culture de cellules dans un délai de 12 heures seulement. Les deux tests sont spécifiques à leurs virus respectifs et des résultats ont été obtenus en moins de 2 heures.

    ABSTRACT: Summary9 viruses have been isolated from European eels with stomatopapilloma during 16 years (1968–1984). Isolates (5) from the blood of eels could be identified as IPN-virus, subtypes Ab, and viruses (4) obtained from tumors were identified as Rhabdovirus anguilla, subtype EVX by means of neutralization tests.
