Conditionally replicating adenoviruses that selectively replicate in tumor cells, but not in normal cells, are being explored as virotherapeutic agents for cancer. A prostate-specific oncolytic adenovirus, CG7870 is currently being evaluated in phase 1/2 clinical trials for the treatment of prostate cancer. To decrease the effective dose and further(More)
The crystal structure of Seneca Valley Virus-001 (SVV-001), the representative member of a new genus, Senecavirus, is reported at 2.3A resolution. SVV-001 is the first naturally occurring nonpathogenic picornavirus shown to mediate selective cytotoxicity towards tumor cells with neuroendocrine cancer features. The nonsegmented (+) ssRNA genome of SVV-001(More)
Seneca Valley Virus-001 (SVV-001) is a newly found species in the Picornaviridae family. SVV-001 is the first naturally occurring nonpathogenic picornavirus observed to mediate selective cytotoxicity towards tumor cells with neuroendocrine cancer features. The nonsegmented (+)ssRNA genome of SVV-001 shares closest sequence similarity to the genomes of the(More)
Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is an autosomal dominant disease caused by a trinucleotide repeatexpansion, cytosine-thymine-guanine (CTG)n, in the 3′ untranslated region of a gene encoding the myotonic dystrophy protein kinase (DMPK). To correlate CTG expansion and protein expression, we studied muscle specimens from 16 adult DM1 patients using three(More)
25 The RNA genome of Seneca Valley Virus (SVV), a recently identified picornavirus, 26 contains an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) element which has structural and 27 functional similarity to that from classical swine fever virus and hepatitis C virus, 28 members of the flaviviridae. The SVV IRES has an absolute requirement for the presence 29 of a(More)
