Attenuating mutations in the P/C gene of human parainfluenza virus type 1 (HPIV1) vaccine candidates abrogate the inhibition of both induction and signaling of type I interferon (IFN) by wild-type HPIV1.

Recombinant human parainfluenza virus type 1 (HPIV1) and mutants containing point and deletion (Delta) mutations in the P/C gene (r-CDelta10-15HNT553A, r-CR84G, r-CF170S and r-CDelta170), which have previously been evaluated as HPIV1 vaccine candidates, were evaluated for their effect on the type I interferon (IFN) response in vitro. HPIV1 wt infection… (More)
