Pseudotyping serotype 5 adenovirus with the fiber from other serotypes uncovers a key role of the fiber protein in adenovirus 5-induced thrombocytopenia

Pseudotyping serotype 5 adenovirus with the fiber from other serotypes uncovers a key role of the fiber protein in adenovirus 5-induced thrombocytopenia. Human Gene Therapy, 27(2):193-201.

Abstract

Adenovirus (Ad) infection in humans is associated with inflammatory responses and thrombocytopenia. Although several studies were conducted in mice models to understand molecular and cellular mechanisms of Ad-induced inflammatory responses, only few of them turned their interest toward the mechanisms of Ad-induced thrombocytopenia. Using different depletion methods, the present study ruled out any significant role of spleen, macrophages, and vitamin K-dependent factor in Ad-induced thrombocytopenia. Interestingly, mice displaying thrombocytopenia expressed high levels of cytokines/chemokines after Ad administration. Most importantly, pseudotyping adenovirus with the fiber protein from other serotypes was associated with reduction of both cytokine/chemokine production and thrombocytopenia. Altogether, our results suggest that capsid fiber protein (and more precisely its shaft) of Ad serotype 5 triggers the cytokine production that leads to Ad-induced thrombocytopenia.
