Combine to form a C5 convertase. Runaway complement activation is prevented by binding of Complement Receptor 1 (CR1) and a constitutively active membrane bound Decay Accelerating Factor (DAF, or CD55) which can prevent the complement cascade[51]. In patients with severe dengue, large amounts of C3a have been detected revealing a role for complement in dengue pathogenesis. This finding might be an

In addition, 22 of the studied viruses apparently had nef and gag genes from viruses belonging to different clades, with the majority (8/10) having either a nef or gag gene derived from CRF02_AG. Interestingly, five gag sequences (10 ) and three (5 ) nef sequences were neither obviously recombinant nor easily classifiable into any

Nce in Hawaii, Cuba, and Thailand[9] shows populations with previous exposure to the dengue virus are at an increased risk for DHF/DSS. Also infants born to dengue immune mothers were shown to be at an increased risk for DHF/DSS[10]. It's not clear how antibodies enhance viral infection. Onehypothesis suggests that non-neutralizing antibodies direct active virions to permissive cells in the immune

N, however, when cells were exposed to heterologus antigens they produced significantly higher amounts of TNF in relation to IFN[41]. During primary infections in mice, dengue specific CD4+ cells were low; however, in all four viral serotypes of a secondary infection there is a marked increase CD4+ response. Not only did CD4+ cells increase IFN production, but they increased CD8+ effector cell act

Ells can increase viral RNA production by over 100-fold making dendritic cells potent components in dengue pathogenesis[20]. Infected dendritic cells also contribute to vascular leak through the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). MMP-2, MMP-13, and MMP-9 were all dramatically increased in immature dendritic cells infected with DENV2. As a result cell-cell adhesion in cells co-cultured

D increases permeability of small blood vessels and smooth muscle contraction. In macrophages, eosinophiles, and neutrophils anaphylatoxins can induce oxidative burst, basophiles, and mast cells release histamine, and C3a can enhance the effect of other proinflammatory cytokines such as TNF, IL-6, and SDF-1. While the mechanism for the many reactions precipitated by complement anaphylatoxins has n
