Project: Identification of viral and cellular factors involved in the establishment of a latent alphaherpesvirus infection
- project duration
- 01-JAN-04 – 31-DEC-06
- In situ hybridisation will be used to examine if certain cytokines and/or antibodies are capable of inducing a latnet pseudorabies infection in vitro in trigeminal ganglion neurons either before or after replication of the viral genome has initiated. Then, 2-D electrophoresis and MALDI-TOF will be used to identify the crucial cellular and viral factors that are involved in latency establishement.
