  • - What constitutes innate virus response
  • MOI ~ 10 PFU/cell, radiolabled from ___ - ___ hr p.i.
  • NFKBIA = This gene encodes a member of the NF-kappa-B inhibitor family, which contain multiple ankrin repeat domains. The encoded protein interacts with REL dimers to inhibit NF-kappa-B/REL complexes which are involved in inflammatory responses. The encoded protein moves between the cytoplasm and the nucleus via a nuclear localization signal and CRM1-mediated nuclear export. Mutations in this gene have been found in ectodermal dysplasia anhidrotic with T-cell immunodeficiency autosomal dominant disease.NFIL3 = Expression of interleukin-3 (IL3; MIM 147740) is restricted to activated T cells, natural killer (NK) cells, and mast cell lines. Transcription initiation depends on the activating capacity of specific protein factors, such as NFIL3, that bind to regulatory regions of the gene, usually upstream of the transcription start site.TNFRSF14 = The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This receptor was identified as a cellular mediator of herpes simplex virus (HSV) entry. Binding of HSV viral envelope glycoprotein D (gD) to this receptor protein has been shown to be part of the viral entry mechanism. The cytoplasmic region of this receptor was found to bind to several TRAF family members, which may mediate the signal transduction pathways that activate the immune response.ICLP2 = Putative homolog of mammalianiI (the invariant protein) and thought to play a role in MHC class II antigen presentation analogous to that in mammalian cells. IL3 = IL-3; MCGF; MULTI-CSF …is a potent growth promoting cytokine. This cytokine is capable of supporting the proliferation of a broad range of hematopoietic cell types. It is involved in a variety of cell activities such as cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. This cytokine has been shown to also possess neurotrophic activity, and it may be associated with neurologic disorders.IL11 = This cytokine is shown to stimulate the T-cell-dependent development of immunoglobulin-producing B cells. It is also found to support the proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells.Cyclin T2a = Cyclin T2a was recently identified as one of the regulatory subunits of the cdk-cyclin complex P-TEFb, the most studied positive factor in the regulation of transcription elongation.

    • 1. Differential Transcription of Fathead Minnow Immune-Related Genes Following Infection with Frog virus 3 (FV3) Kwang Cheng, B. Lynn Escalon, Natalia Garcia-Reyero, and V. Gregory Chinchar
    • 2. Immune Competence Determines Survival in Xenopus • FV3 infection of Xenopus laevis tadpoles and immunocompromised adults triggers severe systemic disease and high mortality. • In contrast, FV3 infection of immunocompetent adults is confined to the kidney and associated with high levels of survival.
    • 3. Cellular vs Viral Responses Determine Survival • Cellular genes contribute to anti-viral immunity and viral clearance. – Immunocompetent adults display protective innate (IFN, pro-inflammatory) and acquired (Antibody, CTLs) responses that resolve infection. • In contrast, viral immune evasion genes antagonize cellular immune responses. – For example ranavirus vIF2α is thought to block PKR-mediated translational shut-off.
    • 4. Goal • Identify cellular immune-related molecules that are differentially expressed in FHM cells after FV3 infection.
    • 5. Approach • Monitor the expression of cellular immune-related genes using a 60K feature fathead minnow (FHM) microarray.
    • 6. Q. When are immune-related genes expressed? M 4h 8h 16h 24h 48h MCPMCP Mx actin
    • 7. Methodology • Sham infect or infect replicate (6) cultures of FHM cells with wt FV3 or the 18K KO mutant, that was shown to be attenuated in vivo. • Prepare total RNA at 8 hr after infection. • Monitor cellular gene expression by microarray analysis • Validate microarray results by qRT-PCR

    • 13. Pathways Affected by FV3 Infection • IFN induction and regulation – IFN, IRF-1, IRF-2, IRF-3, IRF-7, RIGI • Pro-Inflammatory immune response – IL8, IL3, IL1β • Immune activation/ anti-viral activity – NFKBIA, TNFRSF14, MxD, ADAR • Antigen Presentation – MHC class I, ICLP2 • Metabolism – EIF2S2 (eIF-2β), cyclin T2a, HSP70 family members, POLR2A, CAV1

    • 15. Q. Do qualitative/quantitative differences in gene expression explain why 18K KO mutants were attenuated in vivo?
    • 16. Pathway – Apoptosis – WT vs. Mock Red = UP Green = Down
    • 17. Pathway – Apoptosis – 18K vs. Mock Red = UP Green = Down
    • 18. Conclusions • Observation: Numerous immune-related genes, affecting both innate and acquired immunity, were upregulated in FV3-infected cells. • Hypothesis: Immune-related molecules impair virus replication and lead to long term survival.
    • 19. Conclusions • Transcripts induced following infection with wt FV3 and the 18K KO are qualitatively similar. • However, quantitative differences may reflect the role that the 18K protein plays in viral replication and the modulation of cellular gene expression.
    • 20. Future Plans • Use FHM and Xenopus microarrays to analyze global host expression following infection with wt and KO mutants in vivo and in vitro. • Determine whether specific cellular gene products are critical for a protective immune response.
