UV-A and PUV-A action on Sendai virus HN glycoprotein.

Author information

Stefan S. Nicolau Institute of Virology, Bucharest.


The UV-A and PUV-A treatments were applied on the Sendai virus and the changes of the biological properties of HN surface glycoprotein were monitorized. Under the UV-A action the HA and NA activities are inhibited in a dose-correlated way. When the irradiation was done in the presence of a photoreagent (8-MOP) the HA activity remained unchanged, but the enzymic activity was affected. The possible mechanisms of these inhibition processes are discussed.
