Glycoprotein C of bovine herpesvirus 5 (BHV-5) confers a distinct heparin-binding phenotype to BHV-1

Glycoprotein C of bovine herpesvirus 5 (BHV-5) confers a distinct heparin-binding phenotype to BHV-1 Bovine herpesvirus type 1 (BHV-1) causes respiratory and genital diseases in cattle, whereas the closely related BHV-5 can induce severe meningoencephalitis in calves. To characterize BHV-5 glycoprotein C (gC5) within the backbone of BHV-1, three consecutive recombinant viruses were constructed: A deletion mutant (rBHV-1ΔgC blue) with gC1 replaced by the lacZ gene, an exchange mutant (rBHV-1gC5) with the lacZ of BHV-1ΔgC blue exchanged by gC5, and a rescue mutant (rescue BHV-1) from rBHV-1gC5 with an additional Xba I site in gC1. The recombinant and wildtype viruses were characterized on MDBK cells. Although no significant differences were observed in growth behaviour and entry kinetics, rBHV-1gC5 showed a distinct phenotype in a heparin blocking assay. The gC5 was able to transfer the heparin binding phenotype of BHV-5 to BHV-1. This indicates that gC1 and gC5 differ in their receptor binding qualities, which might modulate the ability of the viruses to spread within the central nervous system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Bovine herpesvirus type 1 (BHV-1) causes respiratory and genital diseases in cattle, whereas the closely related BHV-5 can induce severe meningoencephalitis in calves. To characterize BHV-5 glycoprotein C (gC5) within the backbone of BHV-1, three consecutive recombinant viruses were constructed: A deletion mutant (rBHV-1ΔgC blue) with gC1 replaced by the lacZ gene, an exchange mutant (rBHV-1gC5) with the lacZ of BHV-1ΔgC blue exchanged by gC5, and a rescue mutant (rescue BHV-1) from rBHV-1gC5 with an additional Xba I site in gC1. The recombinant and wildtype viruses were characterized on MDBK cells. Although no significant differences were observed in growth behaviour and entry kinetics, rBHV-1gC5 showed a distinct phenotype in a heparin blocking assay. The gC5 was able to transfer the heparin binding phenotype of BHV-5 to BHV-1. This indicates that gC1 and gC5 differ in their receptor binding qualities, which might modulate the ability of the viruses to spread within the central nervous system.
