The same strain of herpesviruses persists within the same host, true or false? Not all mutations that occur persist in the virus population. Viral recombination occurs when viruses of two different parent strains coinfect the same host cell and interact during replication to generate virus progeny that have some genes from both parents. Recombination rates for herpesviruses, which are DNA viruses that replicate in the nucleus of infected cells, approximate those expected for a eukaryotic genome of the size of the herpesvirus genome. Herpesviridae is a large family of DNA viruses that cause diseases in animals, including humans. In this fashion the virus can persist in the cell (and thus the host) indefinitely. The similarities between hIL-10 and cmvIL-10 may be explained by the fact that hIL-10 and cmvIL-10 both use the same cell surface receptor, the hIL-10 receptor. ELISA tests show factor-of-four (x4) false positive results, due to antibody cross-reaction with other Herpes viruses.
Like other herpesviruses, VZV has the capacity to persist in the body after the primary (first) infection as a latent infection. For example, macular lesions may be observed in the same area of skin as mature vesicles. Laboratory techniques allow differentiation of wild-type and vaccine strains of VZV. Testing using commercial kits for IgM antibody is not recommended since available methods lack sensitivity and specificity; false-positive IgM results are common in the presence of high IgG levels. There are eight currently identified members of the human herpes virus family. After primary infection, the virus persists in the sensory ganglia of the CNS. Latent Infection: Virus remains in a cell and does not replicate, as in HSV, VZV, CMV, EBV, and HIV. It persists in lymphoid tissues such as Peyer’s Patches may be reactivated in immunosuppression. ALPHA-HERPES VIRUSES: Grow very rapidly, have a broad host-range. IMMUNITY: Acquired immunity is poor; reinfection with same strain occurs.
The principal reservoir of Shigellosis infection for man is the cannine host. Chlamydia psittaci can cause inapparent infection or fulminant infection in the same host. Angiostrongyliasis usually persists for weeks to months, the parasite dies, and the patient then recovers spontaneously, usually without sequelae. HSV shares some of its antigens with other herpesviruses, in particular VZV. A. Primary Infection;- Man is the only natural host to HSV, the virus is spread by contact, the usual site for the implantation is skin or mucous membrane. (i) true latency – the virus is non-replicative and is maintained within the cell either integration into the cellular chromosome or in an episomal form. Thereafter, the same site is prone to recurrences caused by reactivation of the original virus. As with primary HSV-1 infection, recurrent infection may occur in the absence of clinical symptoms. Both require comparison of HSV-specific antibody reactivity in CSF and serum samples taken on the same day. As such, confirmatory diagnosis of genital herpes in a patient presenting with crusting or healed lesions should not include viral culture, since the likelihood of a false-negative result is high. Both neutralizing antibodies and antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxic (ADCC) antibodies generally appear between two weeks and six weeks following infection and persist for the lifetime of the host.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV), a member of the herpes virus group, is the most common cause of congenital viral infection1,2 and the most common infectious cause of developmental delay and sensorineural hearing loss in the United States. Episodes of recurrent infection with renewed shedding often represent reactivation of latent virus but also can be caused by reinfection by an antigenically different strain of CMV. CMV can establish a latent infection in which viral DNA persists in the host without active replication. Demonstration of IgG antibody seroconversion or a fourfold increase in CMV-IgG antibody titer on samples collected 2 to 4 weeks apart and tested at the same time often is considered the gold standard to diagnose primary CMV infection but, like IgM determinations, is not always accurate. In the field, detecting parasite interactions is rendered difficult by the fact that a large number of co-infected individuals may also be observed when two parasites share common risk factors. Applied to serological data for four viruses infecting cats, the approach revealed pairwise interactions between the Feline Herpesvirus, Parvovirus and Calicivirus, whereas the infection by FIV, the feline equivalent of HIV, did not modify the risk of infection by any of these viruses. Many of them are able to infect a same host species and a host individual can therefore be infected by several parasites at the same time. After an acute infection, FHV is known to persist life-long in a latent form, which can be reactivated in stressful conditions 73. They encode those proteins needed for viral reproduction that the host cell will not supply. How herpesviruses (HSV, CMV, and EBV) and adenoviruses evade the immune responses of their host. Adenoviruses; some 50 different strains infect humans; responsible for some cases of the common cold. A blood sample of an anonymous man was discovered in the archives of a Zairian (which was then called Congo) STD clinic in Kinshasa and analyzed in 1998 to establish this record. Some HIV strains cannot infect certain CD4+ cell lines. The virus can persist indefinitely (or so it seems) as latent proviral DNA, capable of replicating at any time. In the same vein, stress causes nerve cells to secrete norepinephrine and this seems to increase CCR5 density, CXCR4 density, and increase the rate of viral gene expression. The MHV-68 strain used had the complete genome of murid herpesvirus 4 (MHV-68) strain WUMS (Refseq, NC_001826; GenBank accession no. If the same epitope was found in the human epitope list, its similarity to a host epitope would be set at 0. Reference is made to an article by Songsasen & Leibo in the same issue wherein live offspring were achieved. Strain specificities(physiologic or biologic), decreased motility, cryoprotectant toxicity, improper timing of freeze and/or thaw cycles, freezing induced trauma. One such example is the alpha-herpesviruses Herpes simiae which is more severe in a foreign host and is fatal to humans. 2) True or False: Mild hypothermia is useful in prventing ischemic injury to the spinal cord during placement of a vascular prothesis.
