Effects of monensin on morphogenesis and infectivity of Friend murine leukemia virus


Journal of Virology 42(3): 1067-1075
Effects of monensin on morphogenesis and infectivity of Friend murine leukemia virus
The transport of the gp70 glycoprotein to the cell surface and concomitant release of infectious virus was inhibited by treatment of Friend murine leukemia virus-infected Eveline cells with the sodium ionophore monensin. Virus yields were reduced more than 50-fold by 10(-5) M monensin, whereas particle production was reduced by 50% in monensin-treated cells. The resulting particles failed to incorporate newly synthesized gp70 and p15(E), whereas the other structural proteins, p30, p15, p12, and p10, were incorporated into virions. However, monensin did not inhibit the incorporation into virions of preformed gp70. A reduction in the efficiency of cleavage of the PrENV glycoprotein precursor and a defect in the processing of simple endo-H-sensitive to complex endo-H-resistant oligosaccharides suggest that intracellular transport of gp70 may be blocked before its entry into the Golgi apparatus. Fewer particles were found to bud from the cell surface, but intracellular vacuoles with budding virions were detected. Ferritin labeling and pulse-chase studies suggested a cell surface origin for these vacuoles. These experiments indicate that monensin inhibits the transport of Friend murine leukemia virus glycoproteins at an early stage, with a resultant block in the assembly and release of infectious virus.
