Lytic gene expression Is frequent in HSV-1 latent infection and correlates with the engagement of a cell-intrinsic transcriptional response

Ma, Joel Z.; Russell, Tiffany A.; Spelman, Tim; Carbone, Francis R.; Tscharke, David C.


Herpes simplex viruses (HSV) are significant human pathogens that provide one of the best-described examples of viral latency and reactivation. HSV latency occurs in sensory neurons, being characterized by the absence of virus replication and only fragmentary evidence of protein production. In mouse models, HSV latency is especially stable but the detection of some lytic gene transcription and the ongoing presence of activated immune cells in latent ganglia have been used to suggest that...[Show more]
