原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Many neurotropic virus infections have been shown to be virulent in neonatal and suckling mice but avirulent in weaned mice. The neurotropic alphavirus Semliki Forest virus is a well-studied example of this and importantly the age-related change in neurovirulence of this virus has been shown to be independent of specific immune responses. During the first two postnatal weeks many major physiological changes including axonogenesis, synaptogenesis and myelination occur within the rodent CNS. To investigate whether these changes affect virus replication, spread and virulence we have studied the course of infection in the mouse olfactory system. The olfactory system is well-characterized with regard to its development and neuroanatomy and represents an important route of entry of...
