Abstract

The variation in the amount of parvovirus B19 DNA and different classes of RNA in permissive and non-permissive infected cells was analysed by means of quantitative real-time PCR and RT-PCR assays. In the permissive bone marrow mononuclear cells, UT7/Epo and KU812Ep6 cells, viral DNA usually increased within 48 hpi, rarely exceeding 2 Logs with respect to input DNA. Viral RNA was always present within 2-6 hpi, its increase paralleled that of viral DNA up to 36-48 hpi, and all the different classes of viral RNA were constantly represented in stable relative amounts throughout the infection cycle. In the non-permissive TF-1 cells, viral DNA did not increase and only one most represented single class of viral RNA was detected. Our data do not support the current model for B19 virus replication and transcription, consisting in different early and late expression patterns, but suggest an alternative model, indicating that the B19 virus genome should be considered a single, two-state replicative and transcriptional unit.
