Chandipura virus (CHPV), initially thought to be an orphan virus, was later reported to cause sporadic cases of fever with arthralgia, Reye’s syndrome, and. Chandipura virus (CHPV; genus Vesiculovirus, family Rhabdoviridae) is an emerging tropical pathogen with a case fatality rate of 55 to 75% that predominantly. Chandipura virus: A virus that causes fever, symptoms similar to those of flu, and acute encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). Chandipura virus was first.

Support Center Support Center. Journal List Arch Dis Child v. Vesicular eruptions were seen in a few cases during Gujarat outbreak, which developed to hyperpigmentation chandioura healing 5. J Virol 74 — Propagation of Chandipura virus in chick embryos.

Changing clinical scenario in Chandipura virus infection

Indian Pediatr 40 — Elucidation of functional domains of Chandipura virus nucleocapsid protein involved in oligomerization and RNA binding: Complete genome sequences of Chandipura and Isfahan vesiculoviruses. Advancements in diagnostics Tremendous progress has been made in the development of diagnostics and prophylactics Significant contributions have been made in the development of diagnostics and prophylactics, vaccines and antivirals.

However, control of vectors in endemic areas is difficult as they breed in damp places inside crevices of stone used for construction where insecticide spraying is generally not possible. The viruses and their replication.


Development of an inactivated candidate vaccine against Chandipura virus Rhabdoviridae: The potential of siRNAs as an antiviral agent has been demonstrated both in vivo and in chandipyra and would find application for treatment of patients at least during outbreaks. Deadly encephalitis epidemic in India caused by the Chandipura virus [in German]. Endoplasmic Reticulum and Oxidative Stress: Chandipura virus perturbs cholesterol homeostasis leading to neuronal apoptosis.

The infected mice showed convulsions followed by paralysis of front or hind limbs. Hanus C, Ehlers MD. Diagnosis with molecular tools: The NN interaction has been discussed previously by the authors [ 26 ]. Experimental studies in cell cultures A large number of vertebrate and insect cell lines replicated CHPV giving high yields. The presence of CHPV in the brain biopsy specimens as detected by immunofluorescent antibody technique during the early investigations pointed towards the probable association of CHPV 4.

The cause of death was interpreted as encephalitis, acute catastrophic event in the brain, spasm or transient obstruction due to vasculitis.

Both the vaccines induced seroconversion in mice and protected the immunized mice from live virus challenge. The rapid deterioration and death among the patients could not be explained satisfactorily to date though several hypotheses have been postulated 678.

The vaccine developed by the recombinant G-protein were found to induce both cell mediated and humoral immune response making it an ideal vaccine candidate against CHPV. The outbreaks in Central India witnessed case fatality rates ranging from per cent in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat with typical encephalitic symptoms. Evidence of the presence of the virus, its genome, or antigen or antigen—antibody complex in the middle cerebral artery in at least some cases would confirm the aetiologic role of the CHPV in EBAC.


Ability of the matrix protein of vesicular stomatitis virus to suppress beta interferon gene expression is genetically correlated with the inhibition of host RNA and protein synthesis. Liou GY, Storz P. During the life cycle of viruses, the encoded proteins extensively interact with one another to perform their functions.

Is Chandipura virus an emerging human pathogen?

Nevertheless, our choice of boundaries for putative nucleocapsid protein fragments was based on precise structural and biophysical criteria. The presence of the virus in Africa indicates a wide distribution although no human cases have been observed outside India. Chsndipura protein spikes out of the membrane and acts as a major antigenic determinant. The present work after considering the N protein oligomerisation as well as RNA binding constraints suggests smaller peptides within these regions—residues 2 to 30, totoand toto be indispensable for NP association.

The sporadic cases appeared in Gujarat in and With the virhs of interactions of N protein with M and G proteins [ 14 ], there arises a need to chandilura map the specific regions of CHPV N protein involved in mediating its interactions.
