By using the maximum chi-squared method (20), the recombination site was placed either immediately upstream (6/9 recombinants) or downstream (3/9 recombinants) of the 20-bp ORF1/ORF2 overlap in genogroup II strains (p<0.0003) (Table), and similar results were obtained by using Simplot (Figure 2).
Although the vaccinia virus has been shown to preferably trigger programmed necrosis we reported in our previous investigation that the double recombinant vaccinia virus VV-GMCSF-Lact, coding proapoptotic protein lactaptin and human GM-CSF, induced cancer cell death with caspase-3 and caspase-7 activation [6, 24].
