Persistence of alphaviruses in vertebrate hosts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Alphaviruses are a group of arthropod-borne, positive-strand RNA viruses that cause acute encephalitis or arthritis. These viruses were previously thought to cause only acute infections in vertebrates, but recent evidence suggests that host immunological and tissue-specific factors may act together to promote the persistence of alphavirus genomes in vivo.
