In situ immune response and mechanisms of cell damage in central nervous system of fatal cases microcephaly by Zika virus
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
Zika virus (ZIKV) has recently caused a pandemic disease, and many cases of ZIKV infection in pregnant women resulted in abortion, stillbirth, deaths and congenital defects including microcephaly, which now has been ...
In situ inflammasome activation results in severe damage to the central nervous system in fatal Zika virus microcephaly cases
Zika virus (ZIKV) has caused substantial concern worldwide owing to its association with severe birth defects, such as microcephaly and other congenital malformations. Inflammasomes, i.e., multi-protein complexes that ...
The innate immune response in Zika virus infection
Zika virus (ZIKV; Flaviviridae, Flavivirus) was discovered in 1947 in Uganda, Africa, from the serum of a sentinel Rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta). It is an enveloped, positive‐sense, single‐stranded RNA virus, which encodes ...
Correlation between apoptosis and in situ immune response in fatal cases of microcephaly caused by Zika Virus
Zika virus (ZIKV) is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA flavivirus that possesses a genome approximately 10.7 Kb in length. Although pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines and apoptotic markers belonging to the ...
