A recent analysis of data from the Global Burden of Disease study (GBD 2010) revealed that mental and substance disorders are the fifth leading cause of DALYs (Disability-adjusted life years) and the leading cause of YLDs (years lived with disability), accounting for 7.4 % of global DALYs and 5.6 % of global YLDs [1].

The intriguing hypothesis of an infectious cause of or contribution to mental disorders has been considered for different viruses, e.g. herpes viruses and schizophrenia [2]. However, a link, whatsoever, to Borna disease virus (BDV) appeared as a particularly promising line of research since more than two decades [3, 4], Pros and Cons of which are still under debate [5].

Recently, a meta-analysis on infectious agents and depression further supported BDV as the most relevant candidate agent and found statistical significance that depressed individuals are 3.25 times more likely to be infected by BDV than healthy [6].

Bornavirus, neurones et épigénétique : un "ménage à trois" mutuellement salutaire ? Analyser les modalités de l'interaction des virus neurotropes avec leurs cellules cibles représente un défi majeur, cela pourrait favoriser notre compréhension de la physiopathologie de certains troubles neurologiques dont l'origine virale est parfois suspectée. Le Bornavirus (BDV), un virus neurotrope, représente un modèle idéal pour analyser les mécanismes moléculaires de la persistance virale dans les neurones et en étudier les conséquences sur l'homéostasie neuronale.

Au cours de ma thèse, nous avons découvert une nouvelle forme d'interaction virus/cellule dans laquelle une protéine du BDV perturbe la signalisation épigénétique associée à l'acétylation des histones.

Das Virus wurde höchstwahrscheinlich von Bunthörnchen auf die Züchter übertragen, dies zeigten die Wissenschaftler jetzt anhand einer Metagenomanalyse von Gewebeproben der Tiere und der verstorbenen Patienten.

(Photo: Fick Thomsen) Swollen stomach, constipation, and death, are the symptoms of 'aquatic bird bornavirus 1', which affects almost half of all wild geese in North America. Scientists have discovered cases among wild geese in Scandinavia, which, until now, had been unaffected by the deadly virus. . "It’s the first time that the virus has been found among geese in Europe and we’re worried that it's going to spread like it did in North America," says co-author Mads Bertelsen, veterinarian at Copenhagen Zoo, Denmark.

The study is published in the scientific journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, where Bertelsen and his colleagues report cases of the virus among Scandinavian grey geese, barnacle geese, and pink-footed geese. Hunters help scientists find infected geese. CDC EID - DEC 2015 - Aquatic Bird Bornavirus 1 in Wild Geese, Denmark. Author affiliations: University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen (A.F.

NEJM 09/07/15 A Variegated Squirrel Bornavirus Associated with Fatal Human Encephalitis. Between 2011 and 2013, three breeders of variegated squirrels (Sciurus variegatoides) had encephalitis with similar clinical signs and died 2 to 4 months after onset of the clinical symptoms.

With the use of a metagenomic approach that incorporated next-generation sequencing and real-time reverse-transcriptase quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR), the presence of a previously unknown bornavirus was detected in a contact squirrel and in brain samples from the three patients. Phylogenetic analyses showed that this virus, tentatively named variegated squirrel 1 bornavirus (VSBV-1), forms a lineage separate from that of the known bornavirus species.

C’est pourtant ce que suggèrent les résultats des derniers travaux d’une équipe Inserm*. Les chercheurs viennent en effet de montrer qu’une protéine virale issue du Bornavirus protège les neurones de la dégénérescence. L’équipe l’admet bien volontiers : cette découverte est fortuite ! Lutter contre le stress mitochondrial En collaboration avec Jean Michel Peyrin** et avec l'équipe de Stéphane Hunot***, les chercheurs ont réalisé différentes expériences visant à comprendre le fonctionnement de cette protéine et à tester son potentiel thérapeutique. « Les résultats ont montré que la protéine X exprimée seule, en dehors du contexte d'une infection, bloque les dommages mitochondriaux induits par un stress et responsables de la mort des neurones.

+ Author Affiliations Borna disease virus (BDV), a nonsegmented, negative-strand RNA virus, infects a wide variety of mammalian species and readily establishes a long-lasting, persistent infection in brain cells. Therefore, this virus could be a promising candidate as a novel RNA virus vector enabling stable gene expression in the central nervous system (CNS). Previous studies demonstrated that the 5′ untranslated region of the genome is the only site for insertion and expression of a foreign gene. In this study, we established a novel BDV vector in which an additional transcription cassette has been inserted into an intercistronic noncoding region between the viral phosphoprotein (P) and matrix (M) genes. The recombinant BDV (rBDV) carrying green fluorescent protein (GFP) between the P and M genes, rBDV P/M-GFP, expressed GFP efficiently in cultured cells and rodent brains for a long period of time without attenuation.

J. Virol. March 2012 vol. 86 no. 5 2512-2522 Borna Disease Virus Infects Human Neural Progenitor Cells and Impairs Neurogenesis. + Author Affiliations Understanding the complex mechanisms by which infectious agents can disrupt behavior represents a major challenge.

The Borna disease virus (BDV), a potential human pathogen, provides a unique model to study such mechanisms. Because BDV induces neurodegeneration in brain areas that are still undergoing maturation at the time of infection, we tested the hypothesis that BDV interferes with neurogenesis. We showed that human neural stem/progenitor cells are highly permissive to BDV, although infection does not alter their survival or undifferentiated phenotype. MEDICAL NEWS 02/02/12 New Study May End 2 Decades Of Suspicion: Does Borna Disease Virus Cause Mental Illness? SCIENCE DAILY 31/01/12 Does Borna Disease Virus Cause Mental Illness? Over the past 30 years, numerous studies have linked Borna disease virus (BDV) with mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorder, and dementia. Genetic fragments and antibodies to this RNA virus, which causes behavior disorders in a range of mammals and birds, have been found to be prevalent in psychiatric patients, but study results have been inconsistent.

Now, the first blinded, case-control study to examine this issue finds no association between the virus and psychiatric illness. The study, conducted by researchers at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and collaborators at seven other institutions in the U.S., Germany and Australia, can be found online at Molecular Psychiatry. "Our study provides compelling evidence that bornaviruses do not play a role in schizophrenia or mood disorders," says Mady Hornig, MD, director of translational research at the Center for Infection and Immunity.
