Virulence attenuation of Dengue virus due to augmented glycosaminoglycan-binding affinity and restriction in extraneural dissemination

Lee, Eva; Wright, Peter J.; Davidson, Andrew; Lobigs, Mario


To gain insight into the role of cell surface glycosaminoglycans (GAG) in dengue virus (DEN) cell tropism and virulence, DEN-2 mouse brain-adapted vaccine candidate, neurovirulent prototype strain (NGC) and low-passage strain, PUO-218, were passaged in BHK-21 and SW13 cells to isolate variants with high affinity for GAG. Sequence comparisons of parent and passage variants revealed five GAG-binding determinants, which all cluster in a surface-exposed region in domain II of the three-dimensional...[Show more]
