Comoviruses and enteroviruses share a T cell epitope



Comoviruses and enteroviruses share a T cell epitope



Virology 186(1): 238-246



An in vitro murine T cell proliferation assay was used to determine whether an antigenic epitope(s) recognized by enterovirus-immune T cells is held in common between plant comoviruses and human enteroviruses. Splenocytes isolated from C3H/HeJ mice infected with coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) proliferated in vitro not only against a variety of enterovirus (CVB2, CVB3, CVB6, CVA16, PV1) antigens, but against comovirus (CPMV, BPMV) antigens as well. Splenocytes from mice inoculated with bean pod mottle virus (BPMV) also proliferated in response to comoviral and enteroviral antigens in vitro. However, if the viral inocula were highly purified prior to inoculation, then the splenocyte response was generated only against the group used to inoculate, suggesting that the epitope shared between the comoviruses and the enteroviruses resided in the nonstructural region. B (nonstructural) and M (structural) genomic segments of CPMV were translated in rabbit reticulocyte lysates and used as in vitro antigens. Splenocytes from mice inoculated with live CVB3 proliferated in response to the B-RNA-encoded but not the M-RNA-encoded polypeptides, confirming the nonstructural coding region location of the common epitope. Comparison of predicted amino acid sequences in the nonstructural coding regions of the comoviruses and picornaviruses suggested a potentially immunogenic linear epitope in protein 2C. The consensus peptide LEEKGI was synthezized and shown to be immunogenic for both BPMV- and CVB3-immune splenocytes.
