Analysis of compositional bias and codon usage pattern of the coding sequence in Banna virus genome.

By using DNA Star, CUSP of EMBOSS, Codon W and IBM SPSS Statistics, nucleotide composition and codon usage pattern of 115 genes are researched in 37 BAVs. It shows that the composition of all genes prefers to AU, compared to CG, and for most of genes, the order is A, U, G and C in the virus. The ENC-values of the genes are slightly high which shows the weak codon bias, in which the codon bias of V...

Positive modulation of mGluR5 attenuates seizures and reduces TNF-α macrophages and microglia in the brain in a murine model of virus-induced temporal lobe epilepsy.

Viral encephalitis markedly increases the risk for the development of epilepsy. The Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV)-induced model of seizures/epilepsy is a murine model of both viral-induced seizures/epilepsy and human Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. The inflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL)-6 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α have been shown to play a role in seizure development in the...

Host-based processes as therapeutic targets for Rift Valley fever virus.

Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV) is an enveloped, segmented, negative sense RNA virus that replicates within the host's cytoplasm. To facilitate its replication, RVFV must utilize host cell processes and as such, these processes may serve as potential therapeutic targets. This review summarizes key host cell processes impacted by RVFV infection. Specifically the influence of RVFV on host transcripti...

Effects of deletion at the TTTSTTT motif of Hibiscus latent Singapore virus coat protein on viral replication and long-distance movement.

Hibiscus latent Singapore virus (HLSV) mutant HLSV-22A could not express coat protein (CP) nor infect plants systemically (Niu et al., 2015). In this study, a serine- and threonine-rich motif TTTSTTT at the C-terminus of HLSV CP was found to be involved in virus replication and systemic movement. Deletion the last amino acid residue in HLSV-22A led to a more rapid virus replication, but with delay...

Unusual cause of fever, vision loss and super refractory status epilepticus in association with simian virus 40 (SV40).

We present a case of a 23-year-old man with history of fever followed by painless complete vision loss, with subsequent new-onset refractory status epilepticus (NORSE). He initially developed bilateral retinitis. A few days later, he started having focal seizures, and subsequently developed super-refractory status epilepticus, requiring anaesthetic agents. MRI brain revealed multifocal cortical an...

Low T-cell subsets prior to development of virus-associated cancer in HIV-seronegative men who have sex with men.

Immunological parameters that influence susceptibility to virus-associated cancers in HIV-seronegative individuals are unclear. We conducted a case-control cohort study of immunological parameters associated with development of incident virus-associated cancers among 532 HIV-seronegative men who have sex with men (MSM) enrolled in the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) with median (IQR) 21 (8-26...

Resistance to coronavirus infection in amino peptidase N-deficient pigs.

The alphacoronaviruses, transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) and Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) are sources of high morbidity and mortality in neonatal pigs, a consequence of dehydration caused by the infection and necrosis of enterocytes. The biological relevance of amino peptidase N (ANPEP) as a putative receptor for TGEV and PEDV in pigs was evaluated by using CRISPR/Cas9 to edit ...

Human genomics of acute liver failure due to hepatitis B virus infection: an exome sequencing study in liver transplant recipients.

Acute liver failure (ALF) or fulminant hepatitis is a rare, yet severe outcome of infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) that carries a high mortality rate. The occurrence of a life-threatening condition upon infection with a prevalent virus in individuals without known risk factors is suggestive of pathogen-specific immune dysregulation. In the absence of established differences in HBV virulence,...

Generation and characterization of eight human-derived iPSC lines from affected and unaffected THAP1 mutation carriers.

Mutations in THAP1 (THAP domain-containing apoptosis-associated protein 1) cause a form of early-onset, isolated dystonia (DYT-THAP1, aka DYT6). Here, we describe the generation of eight human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines of manifesting and non-manifesting carriers of the THAP1 mutations p.Lys158Asnfs*23 or p.Arg13His (each 4 lines). Dermal fibroblasts were reprogrammed using non-int...

Role of c-Jun terminal kinase (JNK) activation in influenza A virus-induced autophagy and replication.

The non-structural protein 1 (NS1) of different influenza A virus (IAV) strains can differentially regulate the activity of c-Jun terminal kinase (JNK) and PI-3 kinase (PI3K). Whether varying JNK and PI3K activation impacts autophagy and IAV replication differently remains uncertain. Here we report that H5N1 (A/mallard/Huadong/S/2005) influenza A virus induced functional autophagy, as evidenced by...
