Borna disease virus: a unique pathogen and its interaction with intracellular signalling pathways.

Abstract

Borna disease virus (BDV) is a neurotropic RNA virus that establishes non-cytolytic persistent infection in the central nervous system of warm-blooded animals. Depending on the host species and the route of infection, BDV persistence can modulate neuronal plasticity and animal behaviour and/or may provoke a T cell-mediated immunopathological reaction with… (More)
