JC polyomavirus infection reveals delayed progression of the infectious cycle in normal human astrocytes

Journal of Virology

Abstract

JC polyomavirus (JCPyV) infects 50-80% of the population and is the causative agent of a fatal, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS). JCPyV presents initially as a persistent infection in the kidneys of healthy people, but during immunosuppression the virus can reac...read more

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

BK Virus Infection

BK virus infection is a significant complication of modern immunosuppression used in kidney transplantation. Discover the latest research on BK virus infection here.

Demyelinating Disorders of the CNS

Demyelinating diseases result in damage to the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves in the brain and spinal cord and can result in neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis. Here is the latest research on demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system.

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.

Glial Cell Differentiation

Glial cells play an essential role in maintaining brain homeostasis, forming myelin, and providing support and protection for neurons. Follow new research into glia cell differentiation with this feed.

Central Nervous System Viral Diseases

Central nervous system viral diseases can cause inflammation leading to encephalitis, meningitis, or myelitis. These infections can be diagnosed by spinal tap. Discover the latest research on central nervous system viral diseases here.
