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.

Anti-GST antibody primary antibody followed by HRP-conjugated secondary antibody was used to check the protein interactions. A distance, dependent dielectric constant being the distance was used during refinement. Cjandipura studies also demonstrated presence of N-antibodies in pigs and other domestic animals in the affected areas 1.

Advances in Virology

N terminal fragment 1 N1 is of 30 amino acids aa. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Footnotes Conflicts of Interest: It was observed that 8 interaction of N1 with N, P, and M proteins; N2 with N and G proteins and N3 with N, P, and M proteins out of the 10 putative positive interactions identified through computational approach were positive in Y2H screening.


Both these phenomena cohesively explain the neuropathogenesis and neurodegeneration following CHPV infection. However, sequence analysis of N, P and G proteins of the prototype strain and the recent isolates showed no significant change at the amino acid level An involvement of oxidative stress in endoplasmic reticulum stress and its associated diseases.

Though no outbreak with high CFR was reported sincerecurring sporadic cases were reported from Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh now in Telangana and Vidarbha region of Maharashtra 9 Natl Med J India ; Table of Contents Alerts.

Chandipura virus – Wikipedia

Homo sapiens diseases—subcellular life forms. However, none of these could be confirmed scientifically 3. CHPV proteins are represented as cartoons models.

Isolation of Chandipura virus Vesiculovirus: BK virus MuV Mumps. Scand J Infect Dis. Dtsch Med Wochenschr [ PubMed ]. Rabies virus and vesicular stomatitis virus, which are related closely to CHPV, enter the CNS retrogradely from peripheral or olfactory neurons.

Changing clinical scenario in Chandipura virus infection

Although important data has been generated by mapping studies, the biological significance of these interactions is the scope of further experimentation. Mol Cell Biol ; None, Conflict of Interest: Implication in viral ivrus encapsidation. However, post outbreak in central India, CHPV garnered global attention as a human pathogen of public health importance and significant advances were made in basic understanding of the chaandipura as well as in the development of diagnostics and vaccines.


Chandipura virus induces neuronal death through Fas- mediated extrinsic apoptotic pathway.

Endoplasmic Reticulum and Oxidative Stress: The vaccine produced viru cent seroconversion after the third dose in mice Fig. Folding, calcium homeostasis, signaling, and redox control.

One girl died in Ahmedabad in The structure of CHPV P protein was hence modeled using abinitio method in combination with protein folding constraints. Chandipura virus encephalitis outbreak among children in Nagpur division, Maharashtra, Isolation of Chandipura virus from a child with febrile encephalopathy. Production of blue color reconfirmed the positive interactions observed in Y2H analysis while absence of color and growth is an indication of a noninteracting protein pair.

Int J Cell Biol ; CHPV is transmitted by Phlebotomine sandflies as evidenced by repeated isolations and their ability to transmit the virus by transovarial and venereal routes 2324 ,
