Mice infected with coxsackievirus B1 Tucson (CVB1(T)) develop chronic, post-viral myopathy (PVM) with clinical manifestations of hind limb muscle weakness and myositis. The objective of the current study was to establish the genetic basis of myopathogenicity in CVB1(T). Using a reverse genetics approach, full attenuation of PVM could only be achieved by(More)
