Inhibition of innate immune response ameliorates Zika virus-induced neurogenesis deficit in human neural stem cells.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2021 Mar 3;15(3):e0009183. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Department of Neuroscience, Cell Biology and Anatomy, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, Texas, United States of America.

Global Zika virus (ZIKV) outbreaks and their strong link to microcephaly have raised major public health concerns. ZIKV has been reported to affect the innate immune responses in neural stem/progenitor cells (NS/PCs). However, it is unclear how these immune factors affect neurogenesis. Read More

Protection of ZIKV infection-induced neuropathy by abrogation of acute antiviral response in human neural progenitors.

Cell Death Differ 2019 Dec 5;26(12):2607-2621. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

It remains largely unknown how Zika virus (ZIKV) infection causes severe microcephaly in human newborns. We examined an Asian lineage ZIKV, SZ01, which similarly infected and demonstrated comparable growth arrest and apoptotic pathological changes in human neuroprogenitors (NPCs) from forebrain dorsal, forebrain ventral as well as hindbrain and spinal cord brain organoids derived from human pluripotent stem cells. Transcriptome profiling showed common overactivated antiviral response in all regional NPCs upon ZIKV infection. Read More
