Interaction of VP8 with mRNAs of bovine herpesvirus-1. – Abstract

The time-of-addition study demonstrated that the CHLN was effective inhibiting viral replication in 51% and 66·5% for PV-1 and BoHV-1, respectively, at the highest concentration of 20·0 μg ml−1, when added during the infection. Here, we review the mechanisms underlying HDAC regulation during herpesvirus infection. FLAG-tagged VP8 was pulled down from COS-7 cells co-transfected with plasmids encoding VP8 and either gB, gC, gD or bICP0. This suggests that phosphorylation of VP8 is strictly controlled during different stages of the viral life cycle. This virus has worldwide economic impact on livestock industry (Jones, 2003). Partial protection from challenge was induced in calves immunized with replication-competent BAV3.E3gD. Regardless of the differential glycosylation patterns, the scFvs recognized non-gB or -gE target viral epitopes in the BoHV-1 envelope fraction in a Western blot and also neutralized BoHV-1 in infected Madin-Darby kidney (MDBK) cells in vitro.

We selected these time points because BHV-1 replication starts within 2 h of infection in cattle, with cell surface antigen expression within 3–4 h after infection and viral release and spread starting 8 h after infection [ 13 ]. These effects were absent upon infection with recombinant BHV-1 expressing beta-galactosidase instead of BICP0 (A2G2). VP8 interacted with and prevented nuclear accumulation of STAT1 at 2 h post-infection in the absence of de novo viral protein synthesis. This virus (the 51g mutant) contains a cysteine-to-glycine mutation (51st amino acid) in the C3HC4 zinc RING finger of bICP0. Analysis of the replication kinetics of the viral progeny indicated that insertion of the BAC vector into the thymidine kinase gene did not affect viral replication. A related virus, BoHV1 has also been occasionally implicated in natural cases of neurological infection and disease in cattle. An interaction between VP8 and STAT1 was established by coimmunoprecipitation assays in both VP8-transfected and BoHV-1-infected cells.


J Virol. Calves vaccinated once subcutaneously and thrice intranasally with affinity-purified BHV-1 gD had mucosal antibodies and three of five were protected against intranasal challenge by 10(7) p.f.u. These effects were absent upon infection with recombinant BHV-1 expressing β-galactosidase instead of BICP0 (A2G2). The UL47 gene product, VP8, is the most abundant tegument protein of bovine herpes virus-1 (BoHV-1). doi:10.1007/s00705-004-0388-6 2 Citations 45 Downloads Summary.

The incorporation of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) tegument protein VP22 is increased more than twofold when the VP22 protein expression level is increased fivefold (21). In both cases, VP13/14 was targeted to the nucleus, and we have identified an arginine-rich nuclear localization signal in its N terminus (2, 3). Overall, 72% of the panel is permissive to BHV-1 infection, with corresponding decreases in cellular viability. Among these, the F proteins of both human and bovine respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) have the so-far unique feature that cleavage of the respective F protein precursors occurs at two furin recognition sites, resulting in the release of a 27-amino-acid intervening peptide which is secreted into the extracellular space. We show that UL47 is detected in the nucleus early in infection. (b) BHV-1 replication in A549shLUC and A549shKRAS cell lines. Zamb, T.J.

APC, adenomatous polyposis coli. To analyze the effect of the intervening peptide and FCS2 on transport and processing of gB2Fu, KOP-R cells were infected with BHV-1/gB2Fu and BHV-1/gBrev, incubated with [35S]methionine-[35S]cysteine for 30 min, and then chased with normal cell culture medium for the times given in Fig. Stable expression of C40UL3.5 in MDBK cells inhibited replication of BoHV-1 300- to 500-fold in plaque assays. This data is concluded that PIV-3 and BHV-1 infections are present in indigenous bred goats housed in Van region. The gene is situated between map units 0.892 and 0.902 and encodes a predicted protein of 417 amino acids with a signal sequence cleavage site between amino acids 18 and 19. However, the construction of herpesvirus infectious clones using bacterial artificial chromosome vectors has permitted the application of powerful bacterial genetics for the manipulation of these viruses. Mutant pseudorabies virus lacking U(L)3.5 is deficient in viral egress but can be complemented by BHV-1 U(L)3.5 (W.

We observed that, during wild-type BHV-1 infection, PGD2 levels were increased intracellularly and decreased in the medium. Apoptotic cell death was induced in RK13 cells infected with gG-negative BHV-1 within 8 h. GFP fluorescence from VSV-GFP replication was quantified 24 h post-infection using a Typhoon BioAnalyzer (Amersham Biosciences). Hybrid transformants are directly selected on agar plates containing ampicillin. Bovine monolayer cultures were treated with recombinant DNA-produced Bo IFN-alpha 1, Bo IFN-beta 2, Hu IFN-alpha A, or Hu IFN-alpha A/D and then challenge exposed with bovine herpesvirus-1, bovine parainfluenza-3 virus, bovine respiratory syncytial virus, or vesicular stomatitis virus. The UL7 gene of bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1) strain Schönböken was found at a position and in a context predicted from the gene order in the prototype alphaherpesvirus herpes simplex virus type 1. The replication-defective recombinant BAV501 induced systemic immune responses against gD as low titers of anti gD-IgG were detected in the serum.
