Dengue virus (DV) primarily infects blood monocytes (MO) and tissue macrophages (M phi). We have shown in the present study that DV can productively infect primary human MO/M phi regardless of the stage of cell differentiation. After DV infection, the in vitro-differentiated MO/M phi secreted multiple innate cytokines and chemokines, including tumor necrosis factor alpha, alpha interferon (IFN-alpha), interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta), IL-8, IL-12, MIP-1 alpha, and RANTES but not IL-6, IL-15, or… CONTINUE READING
