Description

Magnesium (Mg2+) potentiated the anti-vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) activity of poly r(A-U) or poly r(G-C) and the anti-HIV-1 activity of poly r(A-U). Mg2+ did not affect the anti-VSV activity of poly (rI).poly (rC), poly (dA-dT).poly (dA-dT) or poly (dG-dC).poly (dG-dC). Modulation of one or more nuclear (nucleolar) processes of the host cell may be responsible for the synergistic antiviral activity.
