Recent crystal structures of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (3D(pol)) from Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) revealed that a tyrosine mutation at Phe364 (F364Y) resulted in structures with open active site whereas a hydrophobic mutation at Phe364 (F364A) led to conformations with closed active site. Besides, the crystal structures showed that the F364W mutation had no preference between the open and closed active sites, similar to wild-type. In this paper, we present a molecular dynamics (MD) study on CVB3 3D(pol) in order to address some important questions raised by experiments...

BACKGROUND: The cytoplasmatic pattern recognition receptor, NOD2 (nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain 2), belongs to the innate immune system and is among others responsible for the recognition of single-stranded RNA. With Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) being a single-stranded RNA virus, and the recent evidence that the NOD2 target, NLRP3 (NOD-like receptor family, pyrin domain containing 3) is of importance in the pathogenesis of CVB3-induced myocarditis, we aimed to unravel the role of NOD2 in CVB3-induced myocarditis...

In this study, we investigated the roles of RIP1/RIP3 mediated cardiomyocyte necroptosis in CVB3-induced acute myocarditis. Serum concentrations of creatinine kinase (CK), CK-MB, and cardiac troponin I were detected using a Hitachi Automatic Biochemical Analyzer in a mouse model of acute VMC. Histological changes in cardiac tissue were observed by light microscope and expression levels of RIP1/RIP3 in the cardiac tissue were detected via Western blot and immunohistochemistry. The data showed that RIP1/RIP3 was highly expressed in cardiomyocytes in the acute VMC mouse model and that the necroptosis pathway specific blocker, Nec-1, dramatically reduced the myocardial damage by downregulating the expression of RIP1/RIP3...

Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is an important inducer of myocarditis, which, in susceptible individuals, can chronify and eventually lead to the development of dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure. The respective mechanisms are not completely understood. Here, we analyzed expression of the TRAF6 gene, encoding TNF receptor-associated factor 6 (TRAF6), a signal transduction scaffold protein that acts downstream of cytokine receptors, in heart tissue of susceptible and non-susceptible mouse strains. We found that after infection, TRAF6 expression was upregulated in both non-susceptible C57BL/6 wildtype and susceptible A...

Recently, the active development of oncolytic virotherapy has gathered attention. Enterovirus research seeks to better understand its pathogenicity. In particular, coxsackievirus A21 (CVA21) is a promising candidate for oncolytic virotherapy, and thus is the focus of many clinical trials. We have reported that coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) had potent oncolytic activity for cancer, and induced immunogenic cell death of CVB3-infected cells. We then genetically engineered wild type CVB3 and successfully produced a novel recombinant CVB3-miRT, improving its safety by the introducing an organ-specific miRNA target sequence...

Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is a major pathogen of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD). To date, no antiviral drug has been approved to treat EV71 infection. Due to the essential role that EV71 3 C protease (3C(pro)) plays in the viral life cycle, it is generally considered as a highly appealing target for antiviral drug development. In this study, we present a transgene-encoded biosensor that can accurately, sensitively and quantitatively report the proteolytic activity of EV71 3C(pro). This biosensor is based on the catalyzed activity of a pro-interleukin (IL)-1β-enterovirus 3C(pro) cleavage site-Gaussia Luciferase (GLuc) fusion protein that we named i-3CS-GLuc...

A series of twelve novel compounds, analogues of antiviral agent MDL-860 were synthesized and their antiviral activity was evaluated in vitro against enteroviruses poliovirus 1 (PV1), Coxsackieviruses B1 (CVB1) and Coxsackieviruses B3 (CVB3). Compounds 14, 24 and 25 manifested strong antiviral effects against CVB1 and PV1 (SI values of 405 and 118 for CVB1 and PV1 respectively). In contrast to the wide anti-enteroviral activity of MDL-860, these three compounds were inactive against CVB3. Compounds 14, 24 and 25 along with MDL-860 were tested in vivo in mice infected with CVB1...

In this study, forty-four chiral triazole derivatives have been prepared via asymmetric synthesis, and which has been successfully characterized by typical spectroscopic techniques including (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, EI-MS, elemental analysis and optical rotations. Their in vitro antiviral activities against EV71 and CVB3 were fully investigated in cell-based assays. It was observed that 13 synthetic triazole derivatives inhibited the CPE of EV71 on RD cells, with EC50S in the 5.3-15.9 μg/ml range and corresponding SIs of 4...

Studies on inflammatory disorders elucidated the pivotal role of the CX3CL1/CX3CR1 axis with respect to the pathophysiology and diseases progression. Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3)-induced myocarditis is associated with severe cardiac inflammation, which may progress to heart failure. We therefore investigated the influence of CX3CR1 ablation in the model of acute myocarditis, which was induced by inoculation with 5x105 plaque forming units of CVB3 (Nancy strain) in either CX3CR1-/- or C57BL6/j (WT) mice. Seven days after infection, myocardial inflammation, remodeling, and titin expression and phosphorylation were examined by immunohistochemistry, real-time PCR and Pro-Q diamond stain...

Enteroviruses (EVs) are among viral pathogens that can cause acute flaccid paralysis (AFP). This study represents an overview of EVs isolated through AFP surveillance in Poland between 1999 and 2014. The presence of enteroviruses was studied in stool samples that were collected from 747 AFP cases and their asymptomatic contacts. Fifty five (6.12%) cases of AFP were associated with enterovirus isolation. Out of the 55 positive cases, 40 were associated with detection of enterovirus in patient, and 15 with detection of EV in healthy contact, without positive detection in paralytic patient...

INTRODUCTION: Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is known to induce acute and chronic myocarditis. Most infections are clinically unapparent but some patients suffer from ventricular arrhythmias (VA) and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Studies showed that acute CVB3 infection may cause impaired function of cardiac ion channels, creating a proarrhythmic substrate. However, it is unknown whether low level CVB3+ expression in myocytes may cause altered cardiac electrophysiology leading to VA. METHODS: Cellular electrophysiology was used to analyze cellular action potentials (APs) and occurrence of afterdepolarizations from isolated cardiomyocytes of wildtype (WT) and transgenic CVB3ΔVP0 (CVB3+) mice...

The recurrent Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) infection is the most important cause of intractable myocarditis which often leads to chronic myocarditis and even dilated cardiomyopathy. Therefore, enhanced DNA vaccines capable of memory CD8 T cells are essential for long-lasting immunological protection against CVB3 infection. In this study, absent in melanoma 2 (AIM2) was used as an adjuvant to enhance the induction of memory CD8 T cells elicited by VP1 (viral capsid protein 1) vaccine. Mice were intramuscularly injected with 50 μg AIM2 plasmid and equal amount of VP1 plasmid (pAIM2/pVP1) vaccine 4 times at 2 week-intervals...

The 5' UTR of Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) contains internal ribosome entry site (IRES), which allows cap-independent translation of the viral RNA and a 5'-terminal cloverleaf structure that regulates viral replication, translation and stability. Here, we demonstrate that host protein PSF (PTB associated splicing factor) interacts with the cloverleaf RNA as well as the IRES element. PSF was found to be an important IRES trans acting factor (ITAF) for efficient translation of CVB3 RNA. Interestingly, cytoplasmic abundance of PSF protein increased during CVB3 infection and this is regulated by phosphorylation status at two different amino acid positions...

Enteroviruses are RNA viruses that are responsible for both mild gastroenteritis and mild respiratory illnesses as well as debilitating diseases such as meningitis and myocarditis. The disease burden of enteroviruses in the United States is difficult to assess because most infections are not recorded. Since infected individuals shed enterovirus in feces and urine, surveillance of municipal wastewater can reveal the diversity of enteroviruses circulating in human populations. Therefore, monthly municipal wastewater samples were collected for 1 year and enteroviruses were quantified by reverse transcriptase quantitative PCR and identified by next-generation, high-throughput sequencing...

Recent studies have found that viral myocarditis (VMC) associated with coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) causes autophagy activation after infection, but the specific mechanism is not clear. The present study demonstrated that the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (PKB)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway participates in CVB3‑induced autophagy. We found that the light chain 3 (LC3)‑Ⅱ/LC3‑I ratio was increased and p62 and p‑mTOR were altered at different times during CVB3 infection...

To determine whether IL-21 receptor signaling plays a significant role in promoting Tfh cell-mediated cardiac injury in viral myocarditis (VMC), we compared IL-21R-deficient mice for some parameters of VMC. Balb/c and IL-21R(-/-) mice were infected with CVB3. Frequencies of splenic Tfh cells were determined by flow cytometric analysis, and productions of anti-adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT) autoantibodies were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. To determine the effects of IL-21R signal on the proliferation of B cells, lymphocytes from spleens of the IL-21R(-/-) and Balb/c mice infected by CVB3 were tagged with carboxyfluorescein succinimidyl ester (CFSE) and then were stimulated with lipopolysaccharides plus IL-21 or anti-IL-21 neutralizing antibody for 3 days...

Group B coxsackieviruses are responsible for chronic cardiac infections. However, the molecular mechanisms by which the virus can persist in the human heart long after the signs of acute myocarditis have abated are still not completely understood. Recently, coxsackievirus B3 strains with 5'-terminal deletions in genomic RNAs were isolated from a patient suffering from idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, suggesting that such mutant viruses may be the forms responsible for persistent infection. These deletions lacked portions of 5' stem-loop I, which is an RNA secondary structure required for viral RNA replication...

BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of viral myocarditis is difficult by clinical criteria but facilitated by detection of inflammation and viral genomes in endomyocardial biopsies. Parvovirus B19 (B19V) targets endothelial cells where viral nucleic acid is exclusively detected in the heart. Microparticles (MPs) are released after cell damage or activation of specific cells. We aimed to investigate whether circulating endothelial MPs (EMPs) in human and experimental models of myocarditis are associated with B19V myocarditis...
