Hi, Mr. Putz.

My name is Miguel Pavon, and I am working in this area.
You should read this reference:
Katze et al. (1988). J. Virol 62, 3710-3717

and also...

Lee et al. (1992). J. Biol. Chem. 267, 14238-14243.

in wich the demonstrate tah a cellular factor of 58.000 Da is induced in
influenza infeccion and is responsible for the inhibition of p68 DAI.

Bye !!
