Resident cells of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts, including epithelial and fibroblast cells, are the initial sites of entry for many viral pathogens. We investigated the role that these cells play in the inflammatory process in response to infection with reovirus 1/L. In A549 human bronchial or HT-29 human colonic epithelial cells, interferon(More)
Viruses which infect mucosal surfaces commonly infect these particular anatomical sites based on both the virion structure and the interaction of the virus with a particular microenvironment. We infected a human lung epithelial cell line, a human gut epithelial cell line, and a human lung fibroblast cell line with reovirus 1/L to explore how this natural(More)
