    Many viral proteins are responsible for causing induction of apoptosis in the target cells. Hemagglutinin neuraminidase (HN), a multifunctional protein of Newcastle disease virus (NDV), is one of such proteins. The present study was undertaken to determine the apoptotic potential of the HN gene...
