Resumen

GUZMAN, María G. et al. Estudio de algunas propiedades biológicas de 3 cepas de dengue 2 con diferencias en sus secuencias nucleotídicas. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 1999, vol.51, n.3, pp.177-180. ISSN 0375-0760.

Some biological properties of Dengue-2 strains such as A-15 (isolated in Cuba in 1981); Jamaica (isolated in Jamaica in 1981) and New Guinea "C" (NG"C") standard strain differing in their nucleotide sequences were studied. The results showed that the cytophatic effect in C6/36 HT cell line occured earlier in A-15 strain and that fluorescence was first detected in Jamaica and A-15 strains. This seems to indicate that rapid detection of strains does not have any relation to neither their history of passage nor the original isolation system. A-15 and NG"C" strains exhibited an heterogeneous pattern formed by big and small plaques but average size of plaques in NG"C" was lower whereas Jamaica showed only small plaques. The most neurovirulent strain in mice was NG"G" followed by A-15 whereas Jamaica was not neurovirulent at all. These results indicate that A-15 has a different biological behaviour which is probably due to intrinsic differences. It should be taken into account that 7 amino acid changes were found in the evelope protein which may have affected the expression of some biological properties.
