Identification of a murine cell line that distinguishes virulent from attenuated isolates of the morbillivirus Peste des Petits Ruminants, a promising tool for virulence studies

Abstract : Comprehensive pathogenesis studies on Peste des Petits Ruminants virus (PPRV) have been delayed so far by the absence of a small animal model reproducing the disease or an in vitro biological system revealing virulence differences. In this study, a mouse 10T1/2 cell line has been identified as presenting different susceptibility to virulent and attenuated PPRV strains. As evidenced by immunofluorescence test and RT-PCR, both virulent and attenuated PPR viruses penetrated and initiated the replication cycle in 10T1/2 cells, independently of the presence of the SLAM goat receptor. However, only virulent strains successfully completed their replication cycle while the vaccine strains did not. Since 10T1/2 cells are interferon-producing cells, the role of the type I interferon (type I IFN) response on this differentiated replication between virulent and attenuated strains was verified by stimulation or repression. Modulation of the type I IFN response did not improve the replication of the vaccine strains, indicating that other cell factor(s) not yet established may hinder the replication of attenuated PPRV in 10T1/2. This 10T1/2 cell line can be proposed as a new in vitro tool for PPRV-host interaction and virulence studies.
