Project: Interactions between pseudorabies virus and neurons of the trigeminal ganglion
- project duration
- 01-JAN-05 – 31-DEC-08
- For many alphaherpesviruses, neurons of the trigeminal ganglion are of crucial importance in viral spread and latency. During the current project, an in vitro system was set up, using the porcine alphaherpesvirus pseudorabies virus and porcine trigeminal ganglion neurons. Based on this in vitro system, novel aspects of alphaherpesvirus spread and latency in neurons are being investigated.
