A Single Amino Acid Substitution in the Matrix Protein (M51R) of Vesicular Stomatitis New Jersey Virus Impairs Replication in Cultured Porcine Macrophages and Results in Significant Attenuation in Pigs.

Front Microbiol 2020 29;11:1123. Epub 2020 May 29.

Foreign Animal Disease Research Unit, USDA/ARS Plum Island Animal Disease Center, Greenport, NY, United States.

In this study, we explore the virulence of vesicular stomatitis New Jersey virus (VSNJV) in pigs and its potential relationship with the virus's ability to modulate innate responses. For this purpose, we developed a mutant of the highly virulent strain NJ0612NME6, containing a single amino acid substitution in the matrix protein (M51R). The M51R mutant of NJ0612NME6 was unable to suppress the transcription of genes associated with the innate immune response both in primary fetal porcine kidney cells and porcine primary macrophage cultures.

Complex-type N-glycans on VSV-G pseudotyped HIV exhibit 'tough' sialic and 'brittle' mannose self-adhesions.

Soft Matter 2019 Jun;15(22):4525-4540

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department, College of Medicine, 1011 LK Downing Hall 2300 6th Street, NW, Howard University, Washington, DC 20059, USA.

The complex-type glycan shields of eukaryotic cells have a core layer of mannose residues buried under tiers of sugars that end with sialic acid (SA) residues. We investigate if the self-latching of mannose residues, earlier reported in pure monolayer studies, also manifests in the setting of a complex-type glycan shield. Would distal SA residues impede access to the mannose core? The interactions of mannobiose-, SA-, and lactose-coated probes with the complex-type VSV-G glycan shield on an HIV pseudovirus were studied with force-spectroscopy and gold-nanoparticle solutions.

Oral lichen planus: A disease or a spectrum of tissue reactions? Types, causes, diagnostic algorhythms, prognosis, management strategies.

Periodontol 2000 2019 06;80(1):105-125

UCL Eastman Dental Institute, University College London, London, UK.

Oral lichen planus and lichenoid lesions comprise a group of disorders of the oral mucosa that likely represent a common reaction pattern to 1 or more unknown antigens. The coexistence of hyperkeratotic striation/reticulation, varying degrees of mucosal inflammation from mild erythema to severe widespread ulceration, and a band-like infiltrate of mononuclear inflammatory cells including activated T lymphocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells, are considered suggestive of oral lichen planus and lichenoid lesions. Several classification systems of oral lichen planus and lichenoid lesions have been attempted, although none seem to be comprehensive. Read More

S27 of IFNα1 Contributes to Its Low Affinity for IFNAR2 and Weak Antiviral Activity.

J Interferon Cytokine Res 2019 05 20;39(5):283-292. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

1 Office of Vaccines Research and Review, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Silver Spring, Maryland.

Type I interferons (IFNs) signal by forming a high affinity IFN-IFNAR2 dimer, which subsequently recruits IFNAR1 to form a ternary complex that initiates JAK/STAT signaling. Among the 12 IFNα subtypes, IFNα1 has a uniquely low affinity for IFNAR2 (<100 × of the other IFNα subtypes) and commensurately weak antiviral activity, suggesting an undefined function distinct from suppression of viral infections. Also unique in IFNα1 is substitution of a serine for phenylalanine at position 27, a contact point that stabilizes the IFNα:IFNAR2 hydrophobic interface. Read More

Photodynamic Inactivation of Herpes Simplex Viruses.

Viruses 2018 09 29;10(10). Epub 2018 Sep 29.

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Dalhousie University, 5850 College Street, Halifax, NS B3H 4R2, Canada.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections can be treated with direct acting antivirals like acyclovir and foscarnet, but long-term use can lead to drug resistance, which motivates research into broadly-acting antivirals that can provide a greater genetic barrier to resistance. Photodynamic inactivation (PDI) employs a photosensitizer, light, and oxygen to create a local burst of reactive oxygen species that inactivate microorganisms. The botanical plant extract Orthoquin is a powerful photosensitizer with antimicrobial properties. Read More

Pre-clinical evaluation of novel mucoadhesive bilayer patches for local delivery of clobetasol-17-propionate to the oral mucosa.

Biomaterials 2018 09 14;178:134-146. Epub 2018 Jun 14.

School of Clinical Dentistry, The University of Sheffield, S10 2TA, Sheffield, UK.

Oral lichen planus (OLP) and recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) are chronic inflammatory conditions often characterised by erosive and/or painful oral lesions that have a considerable impact on quality of life. Current treatment often necessitates the use of steroids in the form of mouthwashes, creams or ointments, but these are often ineffective due to inadequate drug contact times with the lesion. Here we evaluate the performance of novel mucoadhesive patches for targeted drug delivery. Read More

Using thermodynamic parameters to calibrate a mechanistic dose-response for infection of a host by a virus.

Authors:
Paul Gale

Microb Risk Anal 2018 Apr 4;8:1-13. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

59 Fairway Avenue, Tilehurst, Reading, Berkshire, UK.

Assessing the risk of infection from emerging viruses or of existing viruses jumping the species barrier into novel hosts is limited by the lack of dose response data. The initial stages of the infection of a host by a virus involve a series of specific contact interactions between molecules in the host and on the virus surface. The strength of the interaction is quantified in the literature by the dissociation constant (K) which is determined experimentally and is specific for a given virus molecule/host molecule combination.
