Ganglioside-Linked Terminal Sialic Acid Moieties on Murine Macrophages Function as Attachment Receptors for Murine Noroviruses
ABSTRACT Noroviruses are the major cause of nonbacterial gastroenteritis in humans. However, little is known regarding the norovirus life cycle, including cell binding and entry. In contrast to humanExpand
High-Resolution X-Ray Structure and Functional Analysis of the Murine Norovirus 1 Capsid Protein Protruding Domain
ABSTRACT Murine noroviruses (MNV) are closely related to the human noroviruses (HuNoV), which cause the majority of nonbacterial gastroenteritis. Unlike HuNoV, MNV grow in culture and in aExpand
High-Resolution Cryo-Electron Microscopy Structures of Murine Norovirus 1 and Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Reveal Marked Flexibility in the Receptor Binding Domains
ABSTRACT Our previous structural studies on intact, infectious murine norovirus 1 (MNV-1) virions demonstrated that the receptor binding protruding (P) domains are lifted off the inner shell of theExpand
A functional toll-like receptor 8 variant is associated with HIV disease restriction.
BACKGROUND Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play an important role in the innate immune response to pathogens. TLR8 has been found to recognize RNA derived from various viruses, including humanExpand
Murine norovirus-1 entry into permissive macrophages and dendritic cells is pH-independent.
Murine norovirus (MNV) is a recently discovered mouse pathogen. Unlike the fastidious human noroviruses that cause the overwhelming majority of non-bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide, MNV readilyExpand
A Toll-like receptor 7 single nucleotide polymorphism protects from advanced inflammation and fibrosis in male patients with chronic HCV-infection.
BACKGROUND/AIMS HCV-infection leads to development of liver fibrosis, causing morbidity and mortality. Multiple factors influence the progression of fibrosis, including genetic factors. Since HCV isExpand
A Mouse Model for Human Norovirus
ABSTRACT Human noroviruses (HuNoVs) cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. However, despite substantial efforts, a small-animal model for HuNoV has not been described to date. SinceExpand
1-1-2013 A mouse model for human norovirus
Human noroviruses (HuNoVs) cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. However, despite substantial efforts, a small-animal model for HuNoV has not been described to date. Since “humanized”Expand
Disruption of the Human Gut Microbiota following Norovirus Infection
The gut microbiota, the collection of all bacterial members in the intestinal tract, plays a key role in health. Disruption of the indigenous microbiota by a variety of stressors, includingExpand
Generation of recombinant Norovirus-like particles (VLP) in the human endothelial kidney cell line 293T
Summary.Noroviruses (NVs) are the major cause of non-bacterial outbreaks of gastroenteritis. Here we report a new alternative system to generate recombinant NV virus-like particles (rNV-VLP) in aExpand
