The nonstructural p17 protein of a fusogenic bat-borne reovirus regulates viral replication in virus species- and host-specific manners.

PLoS Pathog 2022 06 2;18(6):e1010553. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Virology, Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Osaka University, Suita, Osaka, Japan.

Nelson Bay orthoreovirus (NBV), a member of the family Reoviridae, genus Orthoreovirus, is a bat-borne virus that causes respiratory diseases in humans. NBV encodes two unique nonstructural proteins, fusion-associated small transmembrane (FAST) protein and p17 protein, in the S1 gene segment. FAST induces cell-cell fusion between infected cells and neighboring cells and the fusogenic activity is required for efficient viral replication. Read More

Structural Analysis of Monomeric RNA-Dependent Polymerases Revisited.

J Mol Evol 2022 Aug 31;90(3-4):283-295. Epub 2022 May 31.

Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico, Mexico.

In the past few years, our understanding of the RNA virosphere has changed dramatically due to the growth and spurt of metagenomics, exponentially increasing the number of RNA viral sequences, and providing a better understanding of their range of potential hosts. As of today, the only conserved protein among RNA viruses appears to be the monomeric RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. This enzyme belongs to the right-hand DNA-and RNA polymerases, which also includes reverse transcriptases and eukaryotic replicative DNA polymerases. Read More

Homology-based classification of accessory proteins in coronavirus genomes uncovers extremely dynamic evolution of gene content.

Mol Ecol 2022 Jul 30;31(13):3672-3692. Epub 2022 May 30.

Scientific Institute IRCCS E. MEDEA, Bioinformatics, Bosisio Parini, Italy.

Coronaviruses (CoVs) have complex genomes that encode a fixed array of structural and nonstructural components, as well as a variety of accessory proteins that differ even among closely related viruses. Accessory proteins often play a role in the suppression of immune responses and may represent virulence factors. Despite their relevance for CoV phenotypic variability, information on accessory proteins is fragmentary. Read More

Vector-borne Virus Research Center, State Key Laboratory of Ecological Pest Control for Fujian and Taiwan Crops, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, Fuzhou, Fujian, China.

Viruses can hijack autophagosomes as the nonlytic release vehicles in cultured host cells. However, how autophagosome-mediated viral spread occurs in infected host tissues or organs in vivo remains poorly understood. Here, we report that an important rice reovirus, rice gall dwarf virus (RGDV) hijacks autophagosomes to traverse multiple insect membrane barriers in the midgut and salivary gland of leafhopper vector to enhance viral spread.

Unrecognized diversity of mammalian orthoreoviruses in North American bats.

Virology 2022 Jun 1;571:1-11. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of Comparative, Diagnostic, and Population Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, 32610, USA. Electronic address:

Bats have recently been identified as potential reservoir hosts for mammalian orthoreoviruses (MRVs) throughout Europe and China. Here we present the first evolutionary and biological characterization of bat-borne MRVs in North America, including phylogenomic analysis, in vitro relative infectivity in bat and other mammalian cell cultures, host cell receptor specificity, and epifluorescence microscopy of viral factory formation. Through genetic and phylogenetic comparisons, we show that two divergent MRV serotype 2 (T2) strains - isolated from a silver-haired bat (Lasionycteris noctivagans) and a big brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus) from Pennsylvania, USA - provide an evolutionary link to an MRV strain (T2W) recovered from an 8-week-old infant who died in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in 1997.

The Reovirus σ3 Protein Inhibits NF-κB-Dependent Antiviral Signaling.

J Virol 2022 05 13;96(9):e0051522. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, USA.

Viral antagonism of innate immune pathways is a common mechanism by which viruses evade immune surveillance. Infection of host cells with reovirus leads to the blockade of NF-κB, a key transcriptional regulator of the hosts' innate immune response. One mechanism by which reovirus infection results in inhibition of NF-κB is through a diminishment in levels of upstream activators, IKKβ and NEMO. Read More

Department of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicinegrid.471408.e, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Engagement of host receptors is essential for viruses to enter target cells and initiate infection. Expression patterns of receptors in turn dictate host range, tissue tropism, and disease pathogenesis during infection. Mammalian orthoreovirus (reovirus) displays serotype-dependent patterns of tropism in the murine central nervous system (CNS) that are dictated by the viral attachment protein σ1. Read More

Avian Reoviruses From Wild Birds Exhibit Pathogenicity to Specific Pathogen Free Chickens by Footpad Route.

Front Vet Sci 2022 24;9:844903. Epub 2022 Feb 24.

Department of Veterinary Infectious Diseases and Avian Diseases, College of Veterinary Medicine and Center for Poultry Diseases Control, Jeonbuk National University, Iksan, South Korea.

Avian reoviruses (ARVs) are ubiquitous in domestic poultry with 80% of them being non-pathogenic and they are frequently found in clinically healthy birds. ARVs have also been known to be the etiological agents of viral arthritis (VA), tenosynovitis, myocarditis, runting-stunting syndrome (RSS), and respiratory and enteric disease in chickens. Significant economic losses during the process of poultry husbandry are due, in part, to unmitigated ARV infections throughout the poultry industry. Read More

Reovirus infection is regulated by NPC1 and endosomal cholesterol homeostasis.

PLoS Pathog 2022 03 9;18(3):e1010322. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

Department of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America.

Cholesterol homeostasis is required for the replication of many viruses, including Ebola virus, hepatitis C virus, and human immunodeficiency virus-1. Niemann-Pick C1 (NPC1) is an endosomal-lysosomal membrane protein involved in cholesterol trafficking from late endosomes and lysosomes to the endoplasmic reticulum. We identified NPC1 in CRISPR and RNA interference screens as a putative host factor for infection by mammalian orthoreovirus (reovirus). Read More

Crabs can be infected by a variety of pathogenic micro-organisms but the most damaging are viruses. Naturally-occurring Callinectes sapidus reovirus 1 (CsRV1) is thought to contribute to mortality of Callinectes sapidus in soft crab culture in the USA. In Brazil, soft crabs are frequently produced using Callinectes danae, which suffers a similar rate of mortality in culture as C. Read More

p17-Modulated Hsp90/Cdc37 Complex Governs Oncolytic Avian Reovirus Replication by Chaperoning p17, Which Promotes Viral Protein Synthesis and Accumulation of Viral Proteins σC and σA in Viral Factories.

J Virol 2022 03 2;96(6):e0007422. Epub 2022 Feb 2.

Institute of Molecular Biology, National Chung Hsing Universitygrid.260542.7, Taichung, Taiwan.

In this work we have determined that heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is essential for avian reovirus (ARV) replication by chaperoning the ARV p17 protein. p17 modulates the formation of the Hsp90/Cdc37 complex by phosphorylation of Cdc37, and this chaperone machinery protects p17 from ubiquitin-proteasome degradation. Inhibition of the Hsp90/Cdc37 complex by inhibitors (17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin 17-AGG, and celastrol) or short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) significantly reduced expression levels of viral proteins and virus yield, suggesting that the Hsp90/Cdc37 chaperone complex functions in virus replication.
