Abstract

Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) colonizes blood-borne dendritic cells (DCs). They express US28, a viral G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). In vitro functions have been described for US28, but how it contributes to host colonization has been unclear. The murine CMV (MCMV) M33 GPCR promotes DC recirculation. We show that US28 shares this function. Thus, DC recirculation is also available to HCMV via US28, and inhibiting US28 G protein-dependent signalling has the potential to reduce systemic infection. We show that M33 also promotes systemic infection through infected DC extravasation.
