    This study investigated the inhibitory effect and mechanism of nitric oxide (NO) on porcine parvovirus (PPV) replication in PK-15 cells. The results showed that two NO-generating compounds, S-nitroso- l-acetylpenicillamine (SNAP) and l-arginine (LA), at a noncytotoxic concentration could reduce...
