Development and use of a 293 cell line expressing lac repressor for the rescue of recombinant adenoviruses expressing high levels of rabies virus glycoprotein. (2/914)

An expression cassette designed for high-level production of rabies virus glycoprotein (RG) could not be rescued into a replication-defective, adenovirus-based vector using standard procedures. To overcome this difficulty, a 293-based cell line, designated 293LAP13, was constructed that contained and expressed a derivative of the lac repressor protein. The lac operator sequence, to which the repressor binds, was incorporated into an expression cassette, containing a promoter and intron, designed for high-level production of RG. Insertion of a single operator sequence immediately downstream of the transcription start site and the use of the 293LAP13 cell line allowed recombinant viruses that could not be isolated with 293 cells to be rescued efficiently. The operator-containing virus reached higher titres in 293LAP13 than in parental 293 cells and also produced plaques more efficiently in 293LAP13 cells. Moreover, in non-complementing human and canine cell lines, adenovirus vectors with a promoter-intron expression cassette expressed RG at much higher levels than vectors lacking the intron. These observations, together with the demonstration that expression of RG by operator-containing vectors was repressed markedly in 293LAP13 cells and that this inhibition was relieved at least partly by IPTG, suggest that the 293LAP13 cell line may be useful for the rescue and propagation of many vectors in which high expression of the desired protein prevents vector rescue in 293 cells.  (+info)

A proline-rich motif within the matrix protein of vesicular stomatitis virus and rabies virus interacts with WW domains of cellular proteins: implications for viral budding. (3/914)

The matrix (M) protein of rhabdoviruses has been shown to play a key role in virus assembly and budding; however, the precise mechanism by which M mediates these processes remains unclear. We have associated a highly conserved, proline-rich motif (PPxY or PY motif, where P denotes proline, Y represents tyrosine, and x denotes any amino acid) of rhabdoviral M proteins with a possible role in budding mediated by the M protein. Point mutations that disrupt the PY motif of the M protein of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) have no obvious effect on membrane localization of M but instead lead to a decrease in the amount of M protein released from cells in a functional budding assay. Interestingly, the PPxY sequence within rhabdoviral M proteins is identical to that of the ligand which interacts with WW domains of cellular proteins. Indeed, results from two in vitro binding assays demonstrate that amino acids 17 through 33 and 29 through 44, which contain the PY motifs of VSV and rabies virus M proteins, respectively, mediate interactions with WW domains of specific cellular proteins. Point mutations that disrupt the consensus PY motif of VSV or rabies virus M protein result in a significant decrease in their ability to interact with the WW domains. These properties of the PY motif of rhabdovirus M proteins are strikingly analogous to those of the late (L) budding domain identified in the gag-specific protein p2b of Rous sarcoma virus. Thus, it is possible that rhabdoviruses may usurp host proteins to facilitate the budding process and that late stages in the budding process of rhabdoviruses and retroviruses may have features in common.  (+info)

Virus promoters determine interference by defective RNAs: selective amplification of mini-RNA vectors and rescue from cDNA by a 3' copy-back ambisense rabies virus. (5/914)

Typical defective interfering (DI) RNAs are more successful in the competition for viral polymerase than the parental (helper) virus, which is mostly due to an altered DI promoter composition. Rabies virus (RV) internal deletion RNAs which possess the authentic RV terminal promoters, and which therefore are transcriptionally active and can be used as vectors for foreign gene expression, are poorly propagated in RV-infected cells and do not interfere with RV replication. To allow DI-like amplification and high-level gene expression from such mini-RNA vectors, we have used an engineered 3' copy-back (ambisense) helper RV in which the strong replication promoter of the antigenome was replaced with the 50-fold-weaker genome promoter. In cells coinfected with ambisense helper virus and mini-RNAs encoding chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) and luciferase, mini-RNAs were amplified to high levels. This was correlated with interference with helper virus replication, finally resulting in a clear predominance of mini-RNAs over helper virus. However, efficient successive passaging of mini-RNAs and high-level reporter gene activity could be achieved without adding exogenous helper virus, revealing a rather moderate degree of interference not precluding substantial HV propagation. Compared to infections with recombinant RV vectors expressing CAT, the availability of abundant mini-RNA templates led to increased levels of CAT mRNA such that CAT activities were augmented up to 250-fold, while virus gene transcription was kept to a minimum. We have also exploited the finding that internal deletion model RNAs behave like DI RNAs and are selectively amplified in the presence of ambisense helper virus to demonstrate for the first time RV-supported rescue of cDNA after transfection of mini-RNA cDNAs in ambisense RV-infected cells expressing T7 RNA polymerase.  (+info)

Human rabies postexposure prophylaxis during a raccoon rabies epizootic in New York, 1993 and 1994. (6/914)

We describe the epidemiology of human rabies postexposure prophylaxis (PEP) in four upstate New York counties during the 1st and 2nd year of a raccoon rabies epizootic. We obtained data from records of 1,173 persons whose rabies PEP was reported to local health departments in 1993 and 1994. Mean annual PEP incidence rates were highest in rural counties, in summer, and in patients 10 to 14 and 35 to 44 years of age. PEP given after bites was primarily associated with unvaccinated dogs and cats, but most (70%) was not attributable to bites. Although pet vaccination and stray animal control, which target direct exposure, remain the cornerstones of human rabies prevention, the risk for rabies by the nonbite route (e. g., raccoon saliva on pet dogs' and cats' fur) should also be considered.  (+info)

A new quantitative method for rabies virus by detection of nucleoprotein in virion using ELISA. (7/914)

We have developed a new quantitative method for rabies virus (RV) detection using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The method named N-ELISA was based on the quantitation of nucleoprotein (N) in RV virions captured by RV-specific polyclonal antibodies on an ELISA plate. Both infective and defective interfering (DI) particles of RV could be detected by this method. When viruses were propagated in a medium of pH 7.4 adjusted with 7% NaHCO3, N-ELISA could detect them with titers of more than 10(6) pfu/ml, though the result did not correlate highly with that of the infectivity assay. The reason for this was considered to be that RVs included spikeless and damaged particles which were produced under conditions of low or high pH. However, in the time course of virus yield, titers of N-ELISA correlated well with those of the infectivity assay.  (+info)

Modification of membrane currents in mouse neuroblastoma cells following infection with rabies virus. (8/914)

1. The effect on membrane currents of infection of mouse neuroblastoma NA cells with rabies virus was studied by using the whole-cell patch clamp technique. 2. Three types of membrane currents, namely voltage-dependent Na+ current (I(Na)), delayed rectifier K+ current (I(K-DR)) and inward rectifier K+ current (I(K-IR)) were elicited in uninfected cells. 3. In cells 3 days after infection with the virus, no detectable change was observed in morphology and membrane capacitance, but I(Na) and I(K-IR) were significantly decreased in amplitude without any appreciable difference in the time course of current activation and inactivation. The voltage-dependence of I(Na) activation was significantly shifted in the positive direction along the voltage axis with a decreased slope. I(K-DR) remained almost unaltered after the viral infection. 4. The resting membrane potential, measured with a physiological K+ gradient across the cell membrane, was decreased (depolarized) after the viral infection. The depolarization was associated with the decreased amplitude of I(K-IR). 5. These results suggest that infection of mouse neuroblastoma NA cells with rabies virus causes reduction of functional expression of ion channels responsible for I(Na) and I(K-IR), and provide evidence for possible involvement of the change in membrane properties in the pathogenesis of rabies disease.  (+info)

To investigate the importance of the rabies virus (RV) glycoprotein (G) in protection against rabies, we constructed a recombinant RV (rRV) in which the RV G ecto- and transmembrane domains were replaced with the corresponding regions of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) glycoprotein (rRV-VSV-G). We were able to recover rRV-VSV-G and found that particle production was equal to rRV. However, the budding of the chimeric virus was delayed and infectious titers were reduced 10-fold compared with the parental rRV strain containing RV G. Biochemical analysis showed equal replication rates of both viruses, and similar amounts of wild-type and chimeric G were present in the respective viral particles. Additional studies were performed to determine whether the immune response against rRV-VSV-G was sufficient to protect against rabies. Mice were primed with rRV or rRV-VSV-G and challenged with a pathogenic strain of RV 12 days later. Similar immune responses against the internal viral proteins of both ...

Understanding the interactions between rabies virus (RABV) and individual host cell proteins is critical for the development of targeted therapies. Here we report that interferon-induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeats 2 (Ifit2), an interferon-stimulated gene (ISG) with possible RNA-binding capacity, is an important restriction factor for rabies virus. When Ifit2 was depleted, RABV grew more quickly in mouse neuroblastoma cells in vitro This effect was replicated in vivo, where Ifit2 knockout mice displayed a dramatically more severe disease phenotype than wild-type mice after intranasal inoculation of RABV. This increase in pathogenicity correlated to an increase in RABV mRNA and live viral load in the brain, as well as to an accelerated spread to brain regions normally affected by this RABV model. These results suggest that Ifit2 exerts its antiviral effect mainly at the level of viral replication, as opposed to functioning as a mechanism that restricts viral entry/egress or transports ...
The enormous potential of modern molecular neuroanatomical tools lies in their ability to determine the precise connectivity of the neuronal cell types comprising the innate circuitry of the brain. We used transgenically targeted viral tracing to identify the monosynaptic inputs to the projection neurons of layer II of medial entorhinal cortex (MEC-LII) in mice. These neurons are not only major inputs to the hippocampus, the structure most clearly implicated in learning and memory, they also are grid cells. Here we address the question of what kinds of inputs are specifically targeting these MEC-LII cells. Cell-specific infection of MEC-LII with recombinant rabies virus results in unambiguous labeling of monosynaptic inputs. Furthermore, ratios of labeled neurons in different regions are largely consistent between animals, suggesting that label reflects density of innervation. While the results mostly confirm prior anatomical work, they also reveal a novel major direct input to MEC-LII from ... molecules must move between the cell membrane and cytoplasm in order for antigen processing to occur properly.Antigens can bind in pockets or grooves, or on extended surfaces in the binding sites of antibodies (Janeway Immunobiology Figure 3.8).Penicillin allergy Thomas Jefferson University (Philadelphia, PA) has patented live, attenuated recombinant rabies virus vaccines generated using reverse genetics to combine the antigenic determinants that render the rabies virus non-pathogenic with the determinants that are responsible for the elicitation of an effective anti-rabies immune response.The endogenous pathway occurs when MHC class I molecules present antigens derived from intracellular (endogenous) proteins in the cytoplasm, such as the proteins produced within virus-infected cells..

Becky McClain, an injured molecular biologist speaks about the changing Tropism of a virus. She talks about this briefly, using the example of the rabies virus. She explains that we have the technology to strip off the coat from any virus and to place any other desired coat onto these viruses. For example, she says....we can take an HIV virus and place a rabies like coat on this HIV virus and that now this virus would have the ability to infect through different routes. Now because it has a different coat, it can infect different types of insects and mammals. When these are released into the environment...whether intentionally or accidentally, there is the real danger of increased chronic illnesses, metabolic disorders, clusters of cancers and possibly if the virus is replicating, it can cause an epidemic. These are difficult to detect and if the virus is not replicating you will not be able to identify it. ...

Scientists under the leadership of the University of Bonn have harnessed rabies viruses for assessing the connectivity of nerve cell transplants: coupled with a green fluorescent protein, the viruses show where replacement cells engrafted into mouse brains have connected to the host neural network. A clearing procedure which turns the brain into a glass-like state and light sheet fluorescence microscopy are used to visualize host-graft connections in a whole-brain preparation. The approach opens exciting prospects for predicting and optimizing the ability of neural transplants to functionally integrate into a host nervous system. The results have now been published in the specialist journal Nature Communications.. Many diseases and injuries result in a loss of nerve cells.

In the event of the slightest suspicion of a possible infection of the rabies virus, it is vital to immediately set up a specific treatment with specific treatments , because without treatment rabies is deadly. The first step is to locally treat the area through which the rabies virus has potentially entered the body, that is: each wound inflicted by an animal that may carry the rabies virus, and every wound that has been in contact with the saliva of such an animal ...

The capacity of a rabies virus to promote neuronal survival (a signature of virulence) or death (a marker of attenuation) depends on the cellular partners recruited by the PDZ-binding site (PDZ-BS) of its envelope glycoprotein (G). Neuronal survival requires the selective association of the PDZ-BS of G with the PDZ domains of two closely related serine-threonine kinases, MAST1 and MAST2. Here, we found that a single amino acid change in the PDZ-BS triggered the apoptotic death of infected neurons and enabled G to interact with additional PDZ partners, in particular the tyrosine phosphatase PTPN4. Knockdown of PTPN4 abrogated virus-mediated apoptosis. Thus, we propose that attenuation of rabies virus requires expansion of the set of host PDZ proteins with which G interacts, which interferes with the finely tuned homeostasis required for survival of the infected neuron.. ...
Rabies Vaccine All dogs must be vaccinated for Rabies Virus. Rabies is a viral infection of the central nervous system that can affect all mammals, including humans, and is 100% fatal if left untreated. It is transmitted from animal-to-animal or from animal-to-human primarily through the bite of an infected animal. Rabies virus travels in the nerves from the site of the bite to the brain and spinal cord. Rabies is carried in the U.S. in wild animals such as skunks, raccoons, foxes, and bats. ...
Host range, Growth characteristics- (i) Animals : All mammals are susceptible to rabies infection. Cattle, cats, foxes are highly susceptible. Humans and dogs occupy an intermediate position. Pups are more susceptible than adult dogs. Experimentally infection can be done on mice, which develop encephalitis and die with in 5-30 days. The rabies virus isolated from natural human or animal infection is called street virus. Following inoculation by any route, it cause fatal encephalitis in laboratory animals. Negri bodies (intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies) demonstrated in the brain of dying animals. After serial intracerebral passages in rabbits, the virus undergoes certain changes and becomes fixed virus, which is more neurotropic, and less infective by other routes. The incubation period is only 6-7 days and fatal encephalitis occurs, Negri bodies is not demonstrable. It produces paralytic rather than furious symptoms. The fixed virus is used for vaccine production. (ii) Chick embryos : The usual ...
Materials and methods: Mice were inoculated with fixed rabies virus, by intramuscular route, in the left hind limbs. Daily, to sixth day, 4-6 animals and their respective controls were killed and fixed by intracardiac perfusion with paraformaldehyde and their brains were extracted to obtain coronal sections using a vibratome. Free-floating sections were treated by immunohistochemical procedures to evaluate the presence of rabies viral antigens and the expression of CB. The last one was quantified by optical densitometry in a microscope with a system of image analysis ...
A viral-encoded polymerase (L gene) transcribes the genomic strand of rabies RNA into leader RNA and five capped and polyadenylated mRNAs, which are translated into proteins. Translation, which involves the synthesis of the N, P, M, G and L proteins, occurs on free ribosomes in the cytoplasm. Although G protein synthesis is initiated on free ribosomes, completion of synthesis and glycosylation (processing of the glycoprotein), occurs in the endoplamsic reticulum (ER) and Golgi apparatus. The intracellular ratio of leader RNA to N protein regulates the switch from transcription to replication. When this switch is activated, replication of the viral genome begins. The first step in viral replication is synthesis of full-length copies (postive strands) of the viral genome. When the switch to replication occurs, RNA transcription becomes non-stop and stop codons are ignored. The viral polymerase enters a single site on the 3 end of the genome, and proceeds to synthesize full-length copies of the ...

The invention further provides a method for producing a composition comprising at least two different proteinaceous molecules comprising paired variable regions, said at least two proteinaceous molecules having different binding specificities, comprising contacting at least three different variable regions under conditions allowing for pairing of variable regions and harvesting essentially all proteinaceous molecules having binding specificities resulting from said pairing.
Rabies virus (RABV) is an ancient, highly neurotropic rhabdovirus that causes lethal encephalitis. Most RABV pathogenesis determinants have been identified with laboratory-adapted or attenuated RABVs, but details of natural RABV pathogenesis and attenuation mechanisms are still poorly understood. To provide a deeper insight in the cellular mechanism of pathogenies of field RABV, this work was performed to assess virus strain specific differences in intra-neuronal virus transport, to identify cell culture adaptive mutations in recombinant field viruses and to explore shRNA-expressing RABVs as research tools for targeted host manipulation in infected cells. Comparison of chimeric RABVs with glycoprotein (G) ecto-domains of different lyssaviruses, together with field RABVs from dog and fox in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons revealed no detectable differences in the axonal accumulation of the viruses. This indicates that previously described G-dependent transport of newly formed RABV in axons can ...

  • If you have been exposed to rabies virus, you should get the vaccine regardless of any other illnesses you may have. (
  • What are the risks from rabies vaccine? (
  • Serious problems from rabies vaccine are very rare. (
  • Other nervous system disorders, such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), have been reported after rabies vaccine, but this happens so rarely that it is not known whether they are related to the vaccine. (

  • Rabies virus (RABV) is a highly neurotropic pathogen that typically leads to mortality of infected animals and humans. (
  • RABV causes rabies, an acute encephalomyelitis associated with a high rate of mortality in humans and animals and affecting different parts of the world, particularly in Asia and Africa. (
  • Although rabies rarely affects humans in the United States, every year, approximately 25,000 persons receive rabies prophylaxis. (
  • In the United States, rabies in humans has decreased from an average of 22 cases per year in 1946-1950 to zero to five cases per year since 1960. (

  • The rabies virus is present in the saliva of infected animals and humans. (
  • Rabies virus causes severe encephalitis in a wide range of mammals, including humans. (
  • Although the case-fatality rate in humans is 100%, rabies is preventable by vaccination. (
  • Dogs are the main reservoir of the virus and are responsible for spillover infections in humans ( 2 ). (
  • Rabies is a zoonosis (a disease that is transmitted from animals to humans) that is caused by a virus. (
  • The main route of rabies transmission to humans is the bite of rabid dogs. (
  • Dogs are the main source of human rabies deaths, contributing up to 99% of all rabies transmissions to humans. (
  • Currently, population movement patterns of infected bats remain unknown and difficult to measure - both factors which impede efforts to understand how the virus will spread and to prevent infections in humans and domestic animals. (
  • Distemper is caused by a virus similar to the one that causes measles in humans. (
  • The virus does not affect humans, therefore, it is not zoonotic and can't be transmitted to people. (
  • The same test used on animals can be done to check for rabies in humans. (
  • Rabies is a zoonotic viral disease (i.e. it can be transmitted from animals to humans) which affects domestic and wild animals. (

  • Animal bite of humans provides an important source of epidemiological information which is crucial in enhancing rabies surveillance in humans and animals [1]. (
  • In Kenya, a study conducted to assess epidemiology of human animal-bite injuries and rabies PEP, concluded that domestic dogs cause most bites in humans and remains a major public health problem [10, 11,12]. (
  • Rabies is perhaps the most common disease bats carry, and the one with the most widespread risk to humans. (
  • The rabies virus can be spread throughout hundreds of different mammal species, including humans. (
  • Rabies is also fatal to humans, there has been only one case of a person surviving rabies when treatment was started after clinical signs were present. (

  • The rabies glycoprotein is the only protein that rabies expresses on its surface, which means it is going to be the major target of neutralizing antibodies during an infection," says LJI Postdoctoral Fellow Heather Callaway, Ph.D., who serves as the study's first author. (
  • Like a Swiss Army knife, the rabies glycoprotein has sequences that unfold and flip upward when needed. (
  • Over the course of three years, Callaway worked to stabilize and freeze the rabies glycoprotein in its trimeric form. (
  • In fact, other rabies researchers have had to cut them off to try to get images of the glycoprotein. (
  • Callaway solved this problem by capturing the rabies glycoprotein in detergent molecules. (
  • Hepatitis B surface antigen is produced in tobacco, rabies virus glycoprotein is produced in tomato, cholera toxin P-subunit is being produced in potato and tobacco. (
  • The Philippines plans to eradicate rabies by 2022, but this is challenged with sub-optimal coverage of vaccination programs coupled with sustained transmission chains, making it unable to eradicate the disease. (
  • Animal control and vaccination strategies now have stronger roles than postexposure prophylaxis in preventing the spread of rabies. (
  • Rabies is the only disease where postexpo-sure vaccination is employed extensively and successfully. (
  • The pre-exposure schedule for rabies vaccination is 3 doses, given at the following times: (1) Dose 1: As appropriate, (2) Dose 2: 7 days after Dose 1, and (3) Dose 3: 21 days or 28 days after Dose 1. (
  • The virus still remains endemic across much of the developing world, where the majority (99%) of human deaths due to rabies occur, mainly in Africa and Asia although extensive vaccination campaigns in dog and terrestrial wildlife populations have reduced the incidence across globe. (

  • Due to the serious threat for human exposure when handling a horse with rabies, any suspected case of equine rabies should be handled as if it were positive until proven otherwise. (
  • This paper describes the raccoon rabies outbreak in Ontario (identified in December 2015) and the control measures undertaken to curb the spread of the epizootic using the One Health approach. (
  • This outbreak of raccoon rabies is by far the largest to have occurred in Canada and the first raccoon rabies outbreak documented in a densely populated urban area. (
  • This was the first case of raccoon rabies in the province since 2005 and the first case of raccoon rabies ever recorded in southwestern Ontario. (
  • This article provides an update on the raccoon rabies epizootic in Ontario, particularly in and around Hamilton, Ontario, where the outbreak was first identified in December 2015. (
  • Raccoon rabies originally emerged in the state of Florida in the 1940s, spreading to the Mid-Atlantic states in the 1970s. (
  • Multiplex Neural Circuit Tracing With G-Deleted Rabies Viral Vectors. (
  • The NIH sponsored program offers training to postdoctoral trainees in research related to viruses that affect the central nervous system or that are used as vectors to deliver genes to the nervous system. (
  • Trainers work on DNA and RNA viruses including: human immunodeficiency virus, coronaviruses, alphaviruses and herpes viruses as well as on viral vectors. (
  • The qPCR test detects the genome (DNA) of Rabies virus. (
  • The rabies virus genome is composed of approximately 12000 nucleotides. (
  • Ari Helenius was the primary individual to show that some enveloped viruses fuse with the endosomes to ship their genome into the cytosol (Helenius et al. (
  • The yellow fever virus genome. (
  • Rabies attacks the central nervous system and causes death in cases not immediately treated following exposure. (
  • The number of rabies cases among domestic animals has decreased similarly. (
  • Although disease surveillance is insufficient throughout Mali, the level of underreporting of rabies cases is unknown. (
  • Persons with suspected cases of rabies are referred to a specialized clinic (Lazaret Clinic) in Bamako. (
  • The United States has experienced a substantial decrease in human rabies cases acquired from indigenous domestic animals. (
  • Cats, dogs and cattle account for nearly 90% of rabies cases in domestic animals. (
  • These are the first confirmed cases of rabies in coyotes in Vermont. (
  • In the past, human rabies cases in the United States usually resulted from a dog bite. (
  • In rare cases, rabies has been transmitted without an actual bite. (
  • Unfortunately, if rabies is contracted, rabies will almost inevitably kill you, with only fourteen cases in history of a person ever recovering. (
  • Ecological Potential for Rabies Virus Transmission via Scavenging of D" by Tad C. Theimer, Annie C. Dyer et al. (
  • The complementary findings on epidemiology, transmission, and recombination for Talomo suggest that high incidence areas can be seeds for virus dispersal and evolution. (
  • Rabies transmission through corneal and solid organ transplants have been recorded, but they are also very rare. (
  • A heat-treatment process step (58° to 60°C, 10 hours) to inactivate viruses is used to further reduce any risk of blood-borne viral transmission. (
  • To answer your question, organ transplant transmission of rabies is not an entirely new occurrence. (
  • This case in China is the 5th reported cluster of rabies transmission by solid organ transplant in the past 13 years. (
  • The most recent organ transplant rabies transmission was detected in Beijing, China, in July 2015, when rabies was diagnosed in two patients who both received a kidney from same organ donor approximately 6 weeks earlier. (
  • This study was conducted to characterize rabies virus circulating in Bangladesh and to determine its relationship with viruses in neighboring countries to clarify its epidemiologic relationships, origin, and transmission dynamics. (
  • Together our results suggest that rabies maintenance requires transmission among multiple, nearby bat colonies which may be facilitated by waning of protective immunity. (
  • A mathematical model that can estimate the rate of dog-to-dog and dog-to-human rabies virus transmission. (
  • We are currently supporting the EWCP, empowering them to vaccinate at least 1.000 dogs in and around Bale Mountains National Park in Ethiopia and helping to protect the wolves against deadly rabies infections. (
  • Rabies is one of the oldest and most feared viral infections of all time. (
  • Many horses will develop mild or inapparent infections, but in more susceptible horses the virus will leave the blood and enter into the brain and spinal cord where its causes inflammation and interferes with normal central nervous system function leading to severe clinical disease or death of the horse.
