Abstract

The question of a possible role for JC virus (JCV) genomic rearrangements in the pathogenesis of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) was addressed by analysis of the genomic complexity and the transcriptional control region (TCR) of the JCV DNA population in persistently infected CNS and kidney tissue. After cloning of full-length viral DNA, no extensive changes were detected in the coding regions of the JCV genome by restriction analysis suggesting an intact JCV DNA population. For further analysis of the distribution of JCV subtypes, the non-coding region was amplified by PCR. Molecular analysis revealed homogeneous JCV TCR populations in almost 50% of the individuals. Heterogeneity was found in two CNS samples with three and five different JCV subtypes, respectively, and in four kidney specimens with two TCR subtypes. Altogether, seven TCR subtypes were identified. One in each group represented single promoter element TCRs without duplication of sequences. The TCR of the major variant JCV-W1 was comparable in sequence and structure to that of the PML prototype JCV Mad-1 DNA. The identification of dominant PML-derived JCV TCR subtypes in most persistently infected individuals suggests that rearrangements of the JCV TCR can be associated with the persistent state of infection. However, it appears unlikely that PML-associated JCV subtypes are generated anew in each individual host in the course of persistence. The findings rather suggest that a limited number of stable JCV subtypes circulate in different geographical regions of the world.
