Disruption of the Dimer-Dimer Interaction of the Mumps Virus Attachment Protein Head Domain, Aided by an Anion Located at the Interface, Compromises Membrane Fusion Triggering.

J Virol 2020 01 6;94(2). Epub 2020 Jan 6.

Department of Virology, Faculty of Medicine, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan

Mumps virus (MuV), an enveloped negative-strand RNA virus belonging to the family , enters the host cell through membrane fusion mediated by two viral envelope proteins, an attachment protein hemagglutinin-neuraminidase (MuV-HN) and a fusion (F) protein. However, how the binding of MuV-HN to glycan receptors triggers membrane fusion is not well understood. The crystal structure of the MuV-HN head domain forms a tetramer (dimer of dimers) like other paramyxovirus attachment proteins. Read More

Primary Immunoprevention of Epithelial Ovarian Carcinoma by Vaccination against the Extracellular Domain of Anti-Müllerian Hormone Receptor II.

Cancer Prev Res (Phila) 2017 Nov;10(11):612-624

Department of Immunology, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.

Epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC) is the most prevalent form of ovarian cancer in the United States, representing approximately 85% of all cases and causing more deaths than any other gynecologic malignancy. We propose that optimized control of EOC requires the incorporation of a vaccine capable of inducing safe and effective preemptive immunity in cancer-free women. In addition, we hypothesize that ovarian-specific self-proteins that are "retired" from autoimmune-inducing expression levels as ovaries age but are expressed at high levels in emerging EOC may serve as vaccine targets for mediating safe and effective primary immunoprevention.

Case Of Xanthogranulomatous Oophoritis.

J Ayub Med Coll Abbottabad 2017 Jan-Mar;29(1):162-164

Department of Histopathology, Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan.

Xanthogranulomatous inflammation is characterized by destruction of the tissues of the organ involved and replacement by chronic inflammatory cells such as lymphocytes, plasma cells, occasional neutrophils with or without multinucleated or Touton giant cells. Exact aetiology is not known but the theory of infection with organisms like Proteus, E coli, and Bacteroides fragilis is most popular. Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of the female genital tract is not common and usually involves the endometrium; however, xanthogranulomatous inflammation of the ovaries is a rare entity. Read More

Abdominal and pelvic actinomycosis due to longstanding intrauterine device: a slow and devastating infection.

Autops Case Rep 2017 Jan-Mar;7(1):43-47. Epub 2017 Mar 30.

Division of Surgery - Hospital Universitário - Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo/SP - Brazil.

Actinomycosis is a chronic or subacute bacterial infection characterized by large abscess formation, caused mainly by the gram-positive non-acid-fast, anaerobic, or microaerophilic/capnophilic, obligate parasites bacteria from the genus. Although pelvic inflammatory disease is an entity associated with the longstanding use of intrauterine devices (IUDs), actinomycosis is not one of the most frequent infections associated with IUDs. We present the case of a 43-year-old female patient who was referred to the emergency facility because of a 20-day history of abdominal pain with signs of peritoneal irritation. Read More

Ovarian dysfunction associated with zona pellucida-based immunocontraceptive vaccines.

Theriogenology 2017 Feb 17;89:329-337. Epub 2016 Sep 17.

Section of Reproduction, Department of Production Animal Studies, Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Pretoria, Onderstepoort, South Africa.

Despite more than 40 years of research into zona pellucida (ZP)-based vaccines, relatively little is known about their mechanism of action. Early research demonstrated precipitation of ZP glycoproteins by antiovarian antiserum, rendering oocytes resistant to sperm binding in vitro. Subsequent work showed significantly decreased fertilization rates following passive immunization, sparking interest in anti-ZP immunocontraception for human and animal use. Read More

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Multimodality Imaging Approach with Clinical-Pathologic Correlation.

Radiographics 2016 Sep-Oct;36(5):1579-96

From the Department of Diagnostic Radiology (M.V.R., M.M., H.B.D., M.S.) and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences (M.L.M.), Yale University School of Medicine, 333 Cedar St, PO Box 208042, Room TE-2, New Haven, CT 06520.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a common medical problem, with almost 1 million cases diagnosed annually. Historically, PID has been a clinical diagnosis supplemented with the findings from ultrasonography (US) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. However, the diagnosis of PID can be challenging because the clinical manifestations may mimic those of other pelvic and abdominal processes. Read More

Releasing the Genomic RNA Sequestered in the Mumps Virus Nucleocapsid.

J Virol 2016 Nov 28;90(22):10113-10119. Epub 2016 Oct 28.

Department of Chemistry, Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

In a negative-strand RNA virus, the genomic RNA is sequestered inside the nucleocapsid when the viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase uses it as the template for viral RNA synthesis. It must require a conformational change in the nucleocapsid protein (N) to make the RNA accessible to the viral polymerase during this process. The structure of an empty mumps virus (MuV) nucleocapsid-like particle was determined to 10. Read More

School of Basic Medicine, Peking Union Medical College, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Mumps virus (MuV) infection may lead to oophoritis and perturb ovarian function. However, the mechanisms underlying the activation of innate immune responses to MuV infection in the ovary have not been investigated. This study showed that Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) and retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I) cooperatively initiate innate immune responses to MuV infection in mouse ovarian granulosa cells.

Regulation of Murine Ovarian Epithelial Carcinoma by Vaccination against the Cytoplasmic Domain of Anti-Müllerian Hormone Receptor II.

J Immunol Res 2015 5;2015:630287. Epub 2015 Nov 5.

Department of Immunology, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA ; Department of Biology, Cleveland State University, Cleveland, OH, USA ; Department of Molecular Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Anti-Müllerian hormone receptor, type II (AMHR2), is a differentiation protein expressed in 90% of primary epithelial ovarian carcinomas (EOCs), the most deadly gynecologic malignancy. We propose that AMHR2 may serve as a useful target for vaccination against EOC. To this end, we generated the recombinant 399-amino acid cytoplasmic domain of mouse AMHR2 (AMHR2-CD) and tested its efficacy as a vaccine target in inhibiting growth of the ID8 transplantable EOC cell line in C57BL/6 mice and in preventing growth of autochthonous EOCs that occur spontaneously in transgenic mice.
