Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus delays activation of the innate immune response.


As a first line of defence against virus infection, mammalian cells elicit an innate immune response, characterized by secretion of type I interferons and the up-regulation of interferon stimulated genes. Many viruses down-regulate the innate immune responses in order to enhance their virulence. Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV), a Nairovirus of… (More)
