TY - JOUR. T1 - The ebola virus matrix protein VP40 selectively induces vesiculation from phosphatidylserine-enriched membranes. AU - Soni, Smita P.. AU - Stahelin, Robert V.. PY - 2014/11/28. Y1 - 2014/11/28. N2 - Ebola virus is from the Filoviridae family of viruses and is one of the most virulent pathogens known with ∼60% clinical fatality. The Ebola virus negative sense RNA genome encodes seven proteins including viral matrix protein 40 (VP40), which is the most abundant protein found in the virions. Within infected cells VP40 localizes at the inner leaflet of the plasma membrane (PM), binds lipids, and regulates formation of new virus particles. Expression of VP40 in mammalian cells is sufficient to form virus-like particles that are nearly indistinguishable from the authentic virions. However, how VP40 interacts with the PM and forms virus-like particles is for the most part unknown. To investigate VP40 lipid specificity in a model of viral egress we employed giant unilamellar vesicles ...

Ebola virus belongs to the Filoviridae viral family which has three identified genera that include Ebola virus, Marburg virus, and recently identified Cueva virus1. The Ebolavirus genus itself has five identified species which include Reston Ebolavirus, Bundibugyo Ebolavirus, Sudan ebolavirus, Taı¨ Forest Ebolavirus, and Zaire Ebolavirus1. In 1976 an outbreak of hemorrhagic fever in both Zaire and Sudan infected 550 individuals and was fatal in 430 of them6,7. The virus responsible for the outbreak was isolated from the infected patients and was found to be morphologically similar to Marburg but it was also serologically distinct6. Even after multiple outbreaks of both Marburg and Ebola, and extensive research on the different strains that have caused those outbreaks, the origin of Filoviruses still remains a mystery6. Outbreaks of Filoviruses have usually been contained in remote areas of Central Africa7. However the world is currently experiencing the largest Ebolavirus outbreak in its ...
The high mortality rate associated with filovirus infection and the lack of any effective therapeutic strategy have led to their classification as biosafety level 4 pathogens. This extreme pathogenesis has greatly hindered the study of their replication, and thus they remain a very poorly characterized group of viruses. To study the process of Ebola virus entry, we produced retroviral particles pseudotyped with Ebo-GP. Production of high-titer MLV(Ebola) pseudotypes (up to 6 × 106IU/ml) allowed analysis of the host range conferred by Ebo-GP. The host range conferred by Ebo-GP is very broad, enabling the infection by MLV(Ebola) of a variety of cell lines from diverse species and tissues. The infection of many of the cell lines described in Table 1 is not unexpected, since humans, monkeys, and bats have all been reported to be infectible by the Ebola virus in vivo (1, 2, 29). A recent report suggests that pigeons and mice may be refractory to Ebola virus infection (29). However, our results ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The Ebola virus protein VP40 hexamer enhances the clustering of PI(4,5)P2 lipids in the plasma membrane. AU - Gc, Jeevan B.. AU - Gerstman, Bernard S.. AU - Stahelin, Robert V.. AU - Chapagain, Prem P.. PY - 2016/1/1. Y1 - 2016/1/1. N2 - The Ebola virus is a lipid-enveloped virus that obtains its lipid coat from the plasma membrane of the host cell it infects during the budding process. The Ebola virus protein VP40 localizes to the inner leaflet of the plasma membrane and forms the viral matrix, which provides the major structure for the Ebola virus particles. VP40 is initially a dimer that rearranges to a hexameric structure that mediates budding. VP40 hexamers and larger filaments have been shown to be stabilized by PI(4,5)P2 in the plasma membrane inner leaflet. Reduction in the plasma membrane levels of PI(4,5)P2 significantly reduce formation of VP40 oligomers and virus-like particles. We investigated the lipid-protein interactions in VP40 hexamers at the plasma membrane. We ...
BST2 is a host protein with dual functions in response to viral infections: it traps newly assembled enveloped virions at the plasma membrane in infected cells, and it induces NF-κB activity, especially in the context of retroviral assembly. In this study, we examined whether Ebola virus proteins affect BST2-mediated induction of NF-κB. We found that the Ebola virus matrix protein, VP40, and envelope glycoprotein, GP, each cooperate with BST2 to induce NF-κB activity, with maximal activity when all three proteins are expressed. Unlike human immunodeficiency virus type 1 Vpu protein, which antagonizes both virion entrapment and the activation of NF-κB by BST2, Ebola virus GP does not inhibit NF-κB signaling even while it antagonizes the entrapment of virus-like particles. GP from Reston ebolavirus, a nonpathogenic species in humans, showed a phenotype similar to that of GP from Zaire ebolavirus, a highly pathogenic species, in terms of both the activation of NF-κB and the antagonism of ...
The Ebola virus is the causative agent for Ebola hemorrhagic disease in humans and in other mammals. Since 1976 there have been approximately 35 outbreaks of the Ebola virus with the most recent outbreak infecting more than 24,000 people and causing nearly 10,000 deaths. Although there has been a large effort to develop treatments or vaccines against the Ebola virus, there are currently no known cures for Ebola hemorrhagic disease. Of the five known strains, the Sudan Ebolavirus (SUDV) has caused five different outbreaks including the second largest outbreak between 2000 and 2001. The genome of SUDV is made up of seven genes, including the viral matrix which plays an essential role in virus assembly and packaging. Understanding the specific viral structure of the matrix protein from SUDV will be crucial to learning the mechanism of the disease.
Filoviruses of the genus Ebolavirus include 6 species with marked differences in their ability to cause disease in humans. From the highly virulent Ebola virus to the seemingly nonpathogenic Reston virus, case fatality rates can range between 0% and 90%. In order to understand the molecular basis of these differences, it is imperative to establish disease models that recapitulate human disease as faithfully as possible. Nonhuman primates (NHPs) are the gold-standard models for filovirus pathogenesis, but comparative studies are skewed by the fact that Reston virus infection can be lethal for NHPs. Here we used HLA-A2-transgenic, NOD-scid-IL-2γ receptor-knockout (NSG-A2) mice reconstituted with human hematopoiesis to compare Ebola virus and Reston virus pathogenesis in a human-like environment. While markedly less pathogenic than Ebola virus, Reston virus killed 20% of infected mice, a finding that was linked to exacerbated inflammation and viral replication in the liver. In addition, the case ...

Some members of the EBOV genus, including Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV), can cause lethal haemorrhagic fever in humans. During 2014 an unprecedented ZEBOV outbreak occurred in West Africa and is still ongoing, resulting in over 10,000 deaths, and causing global concern of uncontrolled disease. To meet this challenge a rapid-acting vaccine is needed. Many vaccine approaches have shown promise in being able to protect nonhuman primates against ZEBOV. In response to the current ZEBOV outbreak several of ...

Prevents the establishment of cellular antiviral state by blocking the interferon-alpha/beta (IFN-alpha/beta) and IFN-gamma signaling pathways. Blocks the IFN-induced nuclear accumulation of host phosphorylated STAT1, by interacting with the STAT1-binding region of host importin alpha-1/KPNA1 protein, thereby inhibiting the latter. Without the activity of this protein, activated STAT1 would not enter the nucleus and be unable to activate IFN-induced genes. Plays a role in assembly of viral nucleocapsid and virion budding. May act as a minor matrix protein that plays a role in assembly of viral nucleocapsid and virion budding.
In the case of the current outbreak, that latest virus is an Ebola virus (EBOV), which we can now say belongs to the species Zaire ebolavirus.. But back to the car analogy. The silver 1989 Mitsubishi Sigma name is still not enough to tell it apart from any other silver Mitsubishi Sigma parked at the same shopping centre. How do you choose yours in a way that wont get you arrested for breaking into someone elses car? They both look like silver Mitsubishi Sigmas. But the silver Mitsubishi Sigma with license plate ABC 321 is yours and your alone, and that code differentiates your car from any other anywhere in the world.. We know from genome sequencing studies that the virus circulating in Guinea is an EBOV (a silver Mitsubishi Sigma) and is not identical to the one in (what was called) Zaire in 1976 (this silver Mitsubishi Sigma car has a different license plate). They couldnt be the same physical virus anyway, because each person hosts millions and millions of virions, each cell has a varied ...
Ebola virus (EBOV) is considered one of the most aggressive infectious agents and is capable of causing death in humans and nonhuman primates (NHPs) within days of exposure. Recent strategies have succeeded in preventing acquisition of infection in NHPs after treatment; however, these strategies are only successful when administered before or minutes after infection. The present work shows that a combination of three neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) directed against the Ebola envelope glycoprotein (GP) resulted in complete survival (four of four cynomolgus macaques) with no apparent side effects when three doses were administered 3 days apart beginning at 24 hours after a lethal challenge with EBOV. The same treatment initiated 48 hours after lethal challenge with EBOV resulted in two of four cynomolgus macaques fully recovering. The survivors demonstrated an EBOV-GP-specific humoral and cell-mediated immune response. These data highlight the important role of antibodies to control EBOV ...
Mammalian cells employ numerous innate cellular mechanisms to inhibit viral replication and spread. Tetherin, also known as Bst2 or CD317, is an interferon-induced, cellular response factor that was initially found to block release of HIV-1 and other retroviruses from infected cells. Our lab demonstrated that Tetherin functions as a broadly acting antiviral factor by showing that both human and murine Tetherin potently inhibit the release of the filovirus, ebolavirus, from the surface of cells. Moreover we found that the ebolavirus glycoprotein (GP) antagonized the antiviral effect of human and murine Tetherin and facilitated viral budding. However, the mechanism by which ebolavirus impedes Tetherin function is unknown and is one of the areas under active investigation in our lab. Additionally, we recently identified two species of the Tetherin protein generated by alternative translation initiation that display dramatically different biologic activities. Although both protein isoforms act as ...
SURVIVAL OUTSIDE HOST: Filoviruses have been reported capable to survive for weeks in blood and can also survive on contaminated surfaces, particularly at low temperatures (4°C) Footnote52 Footnote61. One study could not recover any Ebolavirus from experimentally contaminated surfaces (plastic, metal or glass) at room temperature Footnote61. In another study, Ebolavirus dried onto glass, polymeric silicone rubber, or painted aluminum alloy is able to survive in the dark for several hours under ambient conditions (between 20 and 250C and 30-40% relative humidity) (amount of virus reduced to 37% after 15.4 hours), but is less stable than some other viral hemorrhagic fevers (Lassa) Footnote53. When dried in tissue culture media onto glass and stored at 4 °C, Zaire ebolavirus survived for over 50 days Footnote61. This information is based on experimental findings only and not based on observations in nature. This information is intended to be used to support local risk assessments in a laboratory ...

Canadian investigators have shown that a species of ebolavirus from Zaire that is highly virulent in humans can replicate in pigs, cause disease, and be transmitted to animals previously unexposed to the virus. The findings are published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases and are now available online.

An Ebolavirus vaccine that has shown promising results in a clinical trial in Guinea was made possible by advances in basic virology of the past 40 years.
A team of researchers have recently brought a "Trojan horse" antibody strategy to life that preliminary results have shown potential for combating a whole scope of filoviruses. The idea in this therapeutic method is to ultimately attack the cleaved glycoprotein in the lysosome and/or the NPC1 receptor in the lysosomal membrane to block the entry of viral genetic material into the cell, by bypassing the obvious obstacle that the lysosome is a closed off compartment within the cell. The "Trojan horse" title to this therapy describes how the researchers are utilizing the virus itself to deliver the aforementioned antibodies to the lysosome. This is done by coupling the cleaved GP or NPC1 targeting antibody to an antibody targeting a "binding site" (epitope) broadly conserved across filoviruses in the uncleaved version of the glycoprotein. Using a well-known dual variable domain strategy, DVD-Ig, this coupling of antibodies can be achieved (A.Z. Wec et al., 2016). In a simple sense, this "Trojan ...

Meanwhile, in the United States, scientists at an Army research center and elsewhere were testing plasma to determine if the virus at the Texas Primate Center had spread to monkeys housed in a separate building.. If they discover that it has spread, all 50 monkeys in the other building will be killed.. Late last week, it was determined that two monkeys imported from the Philippines and kept at the center were infected with Ebola Reston, a strain that is infectious to monkeys but not to humans. All of that original group of 50 monkeys have been killed.. However, at least two monkeys housed in the separate building now have turned up sick.. Electron microscope tests at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases indicate at least one of those monkeys has the Ebola Reston virus. Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, however, have been unable to detect the virus in the sick monkeys.. The Ebola Reston virus is named for a 1989 outbreak in ...

This technology was subsequently used in 2004 to produce replication competent VSV carrying the genes encoding the glycoproteins of filoviruses, which others had shown are the targets of neutralizing antibodies. When injected into mice, these recombinant viruses induced neutralizing antibodies that were protective against lethal disease after challenge with Ebolavirus.. In a series of experiments done over the next 10 years, rVSV-EBOV was shown to protect nonhuman primates from lethal disease. In these experiments, animals were injected intramuscularly with the vaccine and challenged with Ebolavirus. The vaccine induced protection against lethal disease and prevented viremia. Extensive studies of the VSV vector in ~80 nonhuman primates showed no serious side effects, and only transient vector viremia.. The rVSV-EBOV was originally developed by Public Health Agency of Canada, and subsequently licensed to NewLink Genetics. Financial support has been provided from Canadian and US governments and ...
This epitope is the immunodominant epitope 404-VEQHHRRTDND-414 of the GP1 protein recognized by mAb 13F6-1-2 (part of mAb cocktail MB-003). It was identical in all Zaire EBOV since 1976 and was considered a good target for vaccine immunotherapeutic design, as it is immunodominant in a murine model, located in the mucine-like domain, provides protection against viral challenge, and does not adopt any secondary structure or posttranslational modifications that would be difficult to achieve in synthetic or recombinant systems17.. However, this epitope acquired two novel mutations, namely E405G and T411A that are present in all sequences of the 2014 outbreak. The crystal structure of mAb 13F6-1-2 in complex with this peptidic epitope17 [PDB: 2QHR] shows that while the E405G mutation would unlikely have an effect on the antibody binding, the T411A mutation would disrupt a tight hydrogen bond (2.7 Å) between the Thr411 Oγ side-chain atom of the peptide to the Asp33 Oδ1 side-chain atom of the ...

Many contemporary EHF treatments are derived from molecules that are very structurally similar to what the virus uses in protein expression and replication. Sarepta Therapeutics have developed a modified strand of RNA that, when deployed, the virus encounters in the body and mistakes for its own genetic code during replication. Due to the modified code, the daughter virus then goes on to express dysfunctional VP24 which cant bind to interferons properly, allowing them to signal the immune response to destroy the virus. Similarly, Tekmira Pharmaceuticals have developed small interfering RNA drugs that the virus again mistakes for its own RNA. This modified RNA prevents the daughter virus from being able to replicate itself at all. Mapp Biopharmaceuticals developed ZMapp as a cocktail of several antibodies that have a high affinity to Ebola glycoprotein. The cell doesnt mistake the new glycoprotein-ZMapp structure for cholesterol upon binding and so isnt tricked into allowing the virus into ...

2.7 × 10-77) between the initial viremia of survivors (4.02 log10 genome equivalents [GEQ]/ml) and nonsurvivors (6.18 log10 GEQ/ml). At the population level, patient viral loads were higher on average in July than in November, even when accounting for outcome and time since onset of symptoms. This decrease in viral loads temporally correlated with an increase in circulating EBOV-specific IgG antibodies among individuals who were suspected of being infected but shown to be negative for the virus by PCR.. CONCLUSIONS. Our results indicate that initial viremia is associated with outcome of the individual and outbreak duration; therefore, care must be taken in planning clinical trials and interventions. Additional research in virus adaptation and the impacts of host factors on EBOV transmission and pathogenesis is needed.. ...

Filoviruses is amongst the most lethal of primate pathogens. Filoviruses cause lethal hemorrhagic fever in humans and nonhuman primates. The familyFiloviridae includes two genera: Marburgvirus, comprising various strains of the Lake Victoria marburgvirus (MARV); and Ebolavirus (EBOVs), comprising four species including Sudan ebolavirus (SEBOV), Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV), Ivory Coast ebolavirus (CIEBOV), and Reston ebolavirus (REBOV); and a tentative species Bundibugyo ebolavirus (BEBOV).. The infections typically affect multiple organs in the body and are often accompanied by hemorrhage (bleeding). Once the virus has been transmitted from an animal host to a human, it can then spread through person-to-person contact.. ...
During August 2007-February 2008, the novel Bundibugyo ebolavirus species was identified during an outbreak of Ebola viral hemorrhagic fever in Bundibugyo district, western Uganda. To characterize the outbreak as a requisite for determining response, we instituted a caseseries investigation. We identified 192 suspected cases, of which 42 (22%) were laboratory positive for the novel species; 74 (38%) were probable, and 77 (40%) were negative. Laboratory confirmation lagged behind outbreak verification by 3 months. Bundibugyo ebolavirus was less fatal (casefatality rate 34%) than Ebola viruses that had caused previous outbreaks in the region, and most transmission was associated with handling of dead persons without appropriate protection (adjusted odds ratio 3.83, 95% confidence interval 1.78-8.23). Our study highlights the need for maintaining a high index of suspicion for viral hemorrhagic fevers among healthcare workers, building local capacity for laboratory confi rmation of viral hemorrhagic ...

Ebolaviruses cause a severe and often fatal haemorrhagic fever in humans, with some species such as Ebola virus having case fatality rates approaching 90%. Currently, the worst Ebola virus outbreak since the disease was discovered is occurring in West Africa. Although thought to be a zoonotic infection, a concern is that with increasing numbers of humans being infected, Ebola virus variants could be selected which are better adapted for human-to-human transmission. To investigate whether genetic changes in Ebola virus become established in response to adaptation in a different host, a guinea pig model of infection was used. In this experimental system, guinea pigs were infected with Ebola virus (EBOV), which initially did not cause disease. To simulate transmission to uninfected individuals, the virus was serially passaged five times in naïve animals. As the virus was passaged, virulence increased and clinical effects were observed in the guinea pig. An RNAseq and consensus mapping approach was then
Ebola (E-bo-la) fever is a serious disease caused by the Ebola virus, which is named for the Ebola River in the Congo (formerly Zaire). Ebola Fever causes high fever, rash, and bleeding throughout the body. People with Ebola fever often die very quickly. Although scientists know that the disease results from a viral infection, they still have not solved the mystery of its origin and mode of transmission to humans. The Ebola virus belongs to the group of viruses called filoviruses, as do the Marburg and Reston viruses. Scientists first identified the Marburg virus in 1967, when it caused a small outbreak among sick monkeys brought from Africa to a medical laboratory in Marburg, Germany. In 1976, a filovirus named for the Ebola River in Zaire (now the Congo) caused an epidemic in central Africa that killed hundreds of people. Smaller outbreaks have occurred in Africa since then. In 1989 and 1990, many monkeys shipped from Asia to a research laboratory in Reston, Virginia, died from a disease that ...
