Effect of fatty acids on arenavirus replication: inhibition of virus production by lauric acid

 To study the functional involvement of cellular membrane properties on arenavirus infection, saturated fatty acids of variable chain length (C10–C18) were evaluated for their inhibitory activity against the multiplication of Junin virus (JUNV). The most active inhibitor was lauric acid (C12), which reduced virus yields of several attenuated and pathogenic… CONTINUE READING
