Enhanced stabilization of the Tobacco mosaic virus using protic ionic liquids.
Summary of "Enhanced stabilization of the Tobacco mosaic virus using protic ionic liquids."
We report on the use of protic ionic liquids, pILs, as solvents for the solubilisation and stabilization of viruses. We show that the shelf life of the pIL stabilized tobacco mosaic virus is significantly enhanced when compared to traditional phosphate buffer. This has new opportunities for the preparation, characterization and storage of viruses and virus based technologies.

Tobacco Mosaic Satellite Virus
A spherical RNA satellite virus which requires an obligatory helper TOBACCO MOSAIC VIRUS for replication.
Tobacco Mosaic Virus
The type species of TOBAMOVIRUS which causes mosaic disease of tobacco. Transmission occurs by mechanical inoculation.
A genus of plant viruses in which the virion is a rigid filament. Transmission is by mechanical inoculation or seed. The type species is TOBACCO MOSAIC VIRUS.
Tobacco Necrosis Satellite Virus
An icosahedral RNA satellite virus which requires an obligatory Tobacco necrosis virus (see NECROVIRUS) for its replication.
A genus of plant viruses of the family BROMOVIRIDAE, which infect cucurbits and solanaceous plants. Transmission occurs via aphids in a non-persistent manner, and also via seeds. The type species Cucumber mosaic virus, a CUCUMOVIRUS, should not be confused with Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus, a TOBAMOVIRUS.
The present communication divulges interesting thermal behavior of different protic ionic liquids arising due to the hydrophobicity modifications in their parent cationic ring structures. This work as...
DNA methylation plays an important role in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression during plant growth, development, and polyploidization. However, there is still no distinct evidence in tobacco...
Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) can cause a severe disease that is capable of greatly reducing tobacco quality and yield. In this study, a one-step reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplificat...
We show that pharmaceutically active protic ionic liquids can be designed to rapidly transport through model membranes as neutral hydrogen bonded clusters.
In this paper, tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) coated protein (CP) was genetically modified by introducing a hexahistidine tag into it for a well-defined one-dimensional template, on which Au nanocrystals...
The special fixation methodology of the Mosaic Ultra stented procine bioprosthesis allows valves to maintain their natural leaflet structure and root geometry which prevents leaflet calcif...
This study will develop a culturally appropriate tobacco cessation behavioral intervention for Alaska Native women who are pregnant and who use tobacco. We will examine the feasibility of...
To test if smokeless tobacco is more effective than nicotine buccal tablets in smoking cessation compared with a control group with low dose nicotine patches. Also retreatment will be tes...
To compare the efficacy of a targeted, tailored, and highly interactive smokeless tobacco cessation website to a website with more static information that is similar to websites that can b...
Background. Malignant fungating wounds(MFW) are caused by cancerous cells invading skin tissue, which exhibit increased bacterial burdens that not only result in a negative physical impact...
