We have previously shown that the nonstructural (NS) proteins NS1 and NS2 of bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) mediate resistance to the alpha/beta interferon (IFN)-mediated antiviral response. Here, we show that they, in addition, are able to prevent the induction of beta IFN (IFN-beta) after virus infection or double-stranded RNA stimulation. In(More)
Human plasmacytoid dendritic cells (PDC) are key sentinels alerting both innate and adaptive immune responses through production of huge amounts of alpha/beta interferon (IFN). IFN induction in PDC is triggered by outside-in signal transduction pathways through Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) and TLR9 as well as by recognition of cytosolic virus-specific(More)
Mucosal epithelia are invaded from the apical surface during a primary infection by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). HSV-1 progeny virus, synthesized from latently infected peripheral neurons that innervate such epithelia, reinfects the epithelia most likely from the basolateral surface. The epithelial cell lines MDCK and Caco-2 can be induced in vitro(More)
