Zika virus (ZIKV) infection is associated with neurological disorders of both the CNS and peripheral nervous systems (PNS), yet few studies have directly examined PNS infection. Here we show that intraperitoneally or intraventricularly injected ZIKV in the mouse can infect and impact peripheral neurons in vivo. Moreover, ZIKV productively infects stem-cell-derived human neural crest cells and peripheral neurons in vitro, leading to increased cell death, transcriptional dysregulation and cell… Expand
Zika Virus Replication in Dorsal Root Ganglia Explants from Interferon Receptor1 Knockout Mice Causes Myelin Degeneration
TLDR
It is shown that myelinating dorsal root ganglia (DRG) explants obtained from interferon-alpha/beta receptor knock-out mice are productively infected by ZIKV. Expand
Zika virus replicates in skeletal muscle contributing to peripheral viral amplification prior to reach neural tissue
TLDR
Overall, the findings showed that skeletal muscle is involved in ZIKV pathogenesis, contributing to a broader understanding of ZikV infection and opens new aspects in the investigation of the long-term consequence of early infection. Expand
Zika virus infection differentially affects genome-wide transcription in neuronal cells and myeloid dendritic cells
TLDR
RNA sequencing data from ZIKV-infected neuronal cells and myeloid dendritic cells is analyzed by comparative network analyses using protein-protein interaction information to provide insight into the mechanisms of ZikaV infection in the host and the association of ZikV with neurological and immunological symptoms, which may facilitate the development of therapeutic agents and vaccines.

Strain-Dependent Consequences of Zika Virus Infection and Differential Impact on Neural Development
TLDR
The authors found that infection with Asian-lineage ZIKV isolates impaired the proliferation and migration of hNP cells, and neuron maturation, and in contrast, the African- lineage infections resulted in abrupt and extensive cell death. Expand
Zika virus-induced hyper excitation precedes death of mouse primary neuron
TLDR
This model of excitotoxicity, in the context of neurotropic virus infection, highlights the significance of neuronal activity recording with microelectrode array and possibility of more than one lethal mechanism after Zika virus infection in the nervous system. Expand
ZIKV Strains Differentially Affect Survival of Human Fetal Astrocytes versus Neurons and Traffic of ZIKV-Laden Endocytotic Compartments
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ZIKV affects vesicle mobility in all but mosquito cells and astrocytes were more susceptible to ZikV infection than neurons, released more progeny virus and tolerated higher virus loads than neurons. Expand
New spectrum of the neurologic consequences of Zika
Zika virus infection represents a new neuropathological agent with association to a wide spectrum of neurological complications: a) Congenital Zika Syndrome by affecting the neural stem cells of theExpand
Neonatal Zika virus infection causes epileptic seizures, viral persistence and long-term behavioral impairment
TLDR
Late consequences of neonatal ZIKV exposure are revealed and the early inhibition of neuroinflammation as a potential treatment is suggested and suggested in a neonatal immunocompetent mouse model. Expand
Pathophysiology and Mechanisms of Zika Virus Infection in the Nervous System.
TLDR
Although a great deal has been discovered about the genome and pathogenesis of this reemergent flavivirus since this recent outbreak, there still has much more to learn, including the nature of the virus-host interactions and mechanisms that determine its tropism and pathogenicity in the nervous system.

Zika Virus-Induced Neuronal Apoptosis via Increased Mitochondrial Fragmentation
TLDR
It is suggested that abnormal mitochondrial fragmentation contributes to ZIKV-induced neuronal cell death; rebalancing mitochondrial dynamics of fission-fusion could be a therapeutic strategy for drug development to treat ZikV-mediated neuronal apoptosis. Expand

Zika Virus Infects Human Cortical Neural Progenitors and Attenuates Their Growth.
TLDR
It is shown that a strain of the ZIKV, MR766, serially passaged in monkey and mosquito cells efficiently infects human neural progenitor cells (hNPCs) derived from induced pluripotent stem cells, identified as a direct ZikV target, and reveals transcriptional dysregulation, notably of cell-cycle-related pathways.

Zika Virus Infects Neural Progenitors in the Adult Mouse Brain and Alters Proliferation.
TLDR
It is shown that blood-borne ZIKV administration can lead to pronounced evidence of ZIKV infection in these adult neural stem cells, leading to cell death and reduced proliferation, which suggests that adult as well as fetal neuralstem cells are vulnerable to ZIKv neuropathology. Expand

TLDR
Mechanisms of adult neurological disease are unknown, but recent evidence suggests propensity for infection of adult neural stem cells, reminiscent of other viral syndromes. Expand
