The structural proteins of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) Indiana, VSV New Jersey, Chandipura virus annd Piry virus were compared by using two different SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis systems. The G and M proteins of the Indiana serotype had different electrophoretic mobilities from the corresponding proteins of VSV New Jersey, Chandipura virus and Piry virus in a continuous SDS (CONT SDS) gel system. The three major proteins of VSV Indiana G, N and M, were distinctly different from their counterpart proteins in the other three viruses when a high resolution discontinuous SDS (DISC SDS) system was used. Chandipura and Piry virus glycoproteins migrated differently when co electrophoresed in the CONT SDS system, whereas both their N and M proteins were different in the DISC SDS method. During infection both Chandipura and Piry viruses produced defective T particles which contained the same four structural proteins as virus particles.
