Autophagy is a highly regulated self-degradative mechanism required at a basal level for intracellular clearance and recycling of cytoplasmic contents. Upon intracellular pathogen invasion, autophagy can be induced as an innate immune mechanism to control infection. Nevertheless, pathogens have developed strategies to avoid or hijack autophagy for their own benefit. The molecular pathways inducing autophagy in response to infection remain poorly documented. We report here that the engagement of CD46, a ubiquitous human surface receptor able to bind several different pathogens, is sufficient to induce autophagy. CD46-Cyt-1, one of the two C-terminal splice variants of CD46, is linked to the autophagosome formation complex VPS34/Beclin1 via its interaction with the scaffold protein GOPC. Measles virus and group A Streptococcus, two CD46-binding pathogens, induce autophagy through a CD46-Cyt-1/GOPC pathway. Thus, upon microorganism recognition, a cell surface pathogen receptor can directly trigger autophagy, a critical step to control infection.

    • "The virus fuses with SLAM receptors by hemagglutinin and fusion glycoproteins, then spreads from cell to cell (Wenzlow et al. 2007, Wyss-Fluehmann et al. 2010). Signaling lymphocytic activation molecules recruit the autophagosome formation complex, vsp34/ beclin1, so that the Morbillivirus induces autophagy by binding to vsp34/beclin1 (Joubert et al. 2009, Berger et al. 2010). Delpeut et al. (2012) reported that autophagy is a crucial step in the spread of viruses in vitro; however, it ' s effect on multiplication of viruses is limited. "

    ABSTRACT: We investigated the expression of microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 (LC3) protein in the cerebellums of dogs infected with canine distemper virus (CDV) using immunohistochemistry to detect autophagy. The cerebellums of 20 dogs infected with CDV were used. Specimens showing demyelination of white matter were considered to have an acute infection, whereas specimens showing signs of severe perivascular cuffing and demyelination of white matter were classified as having chronic CDV. Cerebellar sections were immunostained with CDV and LC3 antibodies. The cytoplasm of Purkinje cells, granular layer cells, motor neurons in large cerebellar ganglia and some neurons in white matter were positive for the LC3 antibody in both the control and CDV-infected dogs. In the infected cerebellums, however, white matter was immunostained more intensely, particularly the neurons and gemistocytic astrocytes in the demyelinated areas, compared to controls. Autophagy also was demonstrated in CDV-positive cells using double immunofluorescence staining. Our findings indicate that increased autophagy in the cerebellum of dogs naturally infected with CDV may play a role in transferring the virus from cell to cell.

    ABSTRACT: Although apoptotic phenomena have been observed in malignant cells infected by measles virus vaccine strain Edmonston B (MV-Edm), the precise oncolytic mechanisms are poorly defined. In this study we found that MV-Edm induced autophagy and sequestosome 1-mediated mitophagy leading to decreased cytochrome c release, which blocked the pro-apoptotic cascade in non-small cell lung cancer cells (NSCLCs). The decrease of apoptosis by mitophagy favored viral replication. Persistent viral replication sustained by autophagy ultimately resulted in necrotic cell death due to ATP depletion. Importantly, when autophagy was impaired in NSCLCs MV-Edm-induced cell death was significantly abrogated despite of increased apoptosis. Taken together, our results define a novel oncolytic mechanism by which mitophagy switches cell death from apoptosis to more efficient necrosis in NSCLCs following MV-Edm infection. This provides a foundation for future improvement of oncolytic virotherapy or antiviral therapy.

    ABSTRACT: Dengue is one of the most important mosquito-borne viral diseases that are relentlessly spreading in newer areas in the tropical and subtropical regions of the World. In last fifty years, in spite of intensive and extensive investigations, pathogenesis of dengue is still not clearly understood. Recently, the research focus is on studying the role of intracellular events in pathogenesis of viral infections. Entry of virion in the host cell is followed by quick succession of events, unfolded protein response, lipid bodies and lipophagy, endoplasmic reticulum stress and recent demonstration of autophagy. The turbulence caused by these events may result in clearance of the virus/ enhanced replication and survival of the host cell/ apoptosis. Both, increased virus load and apoptosis of host cell may have pathological effects on the host. In the present review, we have summed up the role of various intracellular events in viral infections with special emphasis on Dengue virus infection.
