Parvovirus B19 infections are associated with diverse clinical manifestations, ranging from no symptoms to severe symptoms. The virus shows an extreme tropism for replication in erythroid progenitor cells, possibly due to the activity of the only functional promoter (p6) of the B19 virus genome in combination with both cell- and cell cycle-specific factors(More)
Parvovirus B19 is the only member of the Parvoviridae family known to cause disease in humans. Owing to the high level of cell tropism the virus can only replicate in proliferating and differentiating erythroid precursor cells, which are present in human bone marrow and foetal liver. As human bone marrow is very difficult to obtain, an alternative in vitro(More)
