Transcript of Rabies
Louis Pasteur and Emile Roux creates a rabies vaccine from the spine of an infected animal and tests it on dogs
Once symptoms develop, no known treatment for Rabies
TRANSCRIPTION AND REPLICATION
Two forms of Rabies Virus
- CNS Infecting Virus
Rabies Virus Transcription and Replication
Rabies virus (RABV) and rabies-related viruses belong to the
genus of the
Rabies virus particle
N is bound to the genomic RNA and together with P and L forms the ribonucleoprotein(RNP) that constitutes the active viral replication unit.
L–P binding to the N–RNA probably triggers conformational changes that allow access of the polymerase to the RNA.
G protein is an integral transmembrane protein that is involved in viral entry.
M protein is located beneath the viral membrane and bridges the nucleocapsid and the lipid bilayer.
Rabies virus genome organization
Dog owners in the Babylonian city of Eshnunna are fined heavily for deaths caused by their dogs biting people..
-The genes are usually separated by conserved nontranscribed intergenic
Regions(IGR). The length of the IGRs
plays an important role in regulating gene expression.
-The first and last nine
nucleotides (nt) of the viral RNA are inversely complementary and conserved.
PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis)

100% Success Rate
The viral cycle is cytoplasmic. After receptor binding, the virusenters the cell via the endocytic pathway
The neo-synthesized genomic RNP either serves as a template for secondary transcription or is transported to the cell membrane and assembles with the M and G proteins for the budding of neo-synthesized virions
Reinitiation of the transcription at each TIS does not always occur, generating a gradient of amounts of transcript (leader RNA > mRNA G > mRNA N > mRNA P > mRNA M >mRNA G > mRNA L)
Transcription and replication
During transcription (B), the mRNA is capped and methylated on its nascent 5' extremity at the end of the gene.
During replication (C), the newly synthesized RNA is instantly encapsidated by incoming N–P complexes.
Negri body-like structures(NBLs)
(A)Analyzed at different times postinfection by confocal microscopy and by using an antibody directed against the viral N protein
(B)NBLs display a granular dense structure that is surrounded by a double membrane derived from RER
(C) All viral RNAs are detected in the NBLs (16-h p.i.) as shown by FISH experiments. The N protein (green) forms a cage around the viral RNAs (red).
(D) Viral RNAs are synthesized inside the NBLs. Short-term RNA labeling in the presence of Bromo UTP (BrUTP) indicates that the RABV polymerase incorporates BrUTP into RNA that is actively synthesized within the NBLs.

1. Modifying the viral genome by
deletion of a gene required for the production of infectious viral particles
-> viral spread to be mono-synaptically restricted using the trans-complementation
2.The second modification was to
alter the tropism of the virus(Pseudotyping)
so that it could only infect a genetically specified neuronal population

organization of neuronal
resulting from plasticity or disease can be revealed by comparing the
wiring diagram of experimental and control brains. (
) We can learn more about
plasticity in the adult brain
by studying the integration of adult-born neurons into existing neuronal networks. Similar approaches might be used to study circuit integration following stem cell therapy.
) The analysis of the
physiological properties of synaptic connections
between defined neuron types(inaddition to the anatomical wiring diagram) is greatly aided by this technique. Furthermore, the spatial and temporal integration of signals from a
larger number of presynaptic neurons can be examined in postsynaptic neurons.
) The population activity of a
defined neuronal circuit can also be measured during active sensory stimulation or behavior
and subsequently correlated with the anatomical input network of a defined starter population.
) The receptive field properties of individual neurons can be combined with the analysis of the anatomical wiring diagram of their presynaptic network.
