Abstract

Borna disease virus (BDV) can persistently infect the central nervous system and induce CD8 T-cell-mediated neurological disease in MRL mice. To determine whether specific immune priming would prevent disease, a prime–boost immunization protocol was established in which intramuscular injection of a recombinant parapoxvirus expressing BDV nucleoprotein (BDV-N) was followed by intraperitoneal infection with vaccinia virus expressing BDV-N. Immunized wild-type and perforin-deficient mice remained healthy after intracerebral infection with BDV and contained almost no virus in the brain at 5 weeks post-challenge. Immunization failed to induce resistance against BDV in mice lacking mature CD8 T cells. Immunization of perforin-deficient mice with a poxvirus vector expressing mutant BDV-N lacking the known CD8 T-cell epitope did not efficiently block multiplication of BDV in the brain and did not prevent neurological disease, indicating that vaccine-induced immunity to BDV in wild-type and perforin-deficient mice resulted from the action of CD8 T cells.
