encephalomyocarditis

 [en-sef″ah-lo-mi″o-kahr-di´tis]
a viral disease characterized by degenerative and inflammatory changes in skeletal and cardiac muscle and by lesions of the central nervous system resembling those of poliomyelitis.

(en-sef'ă-lō-mī'ō-kar-dī'tis),
Associated encephalitis and myocarditis; often caused by a viral infection such as in poliomyelitis.

For the RT-PCR screening of CNS samples for the presence of pestiviruses (Flaviviridae) and swine picornaviruses (Picornaviridae), including teschovirus, enterovirus, sapelovirus, Seneca Valley virus, pasivirus, kobuvirus and encephalomyocarditis, we used virus-specific primer pairs as well as the outer and inner primer pairs targeting the RdRp or the capsid regions of PoAstV-3 (Figure 1; online Technical Appendix Tables 1, 2).
IRES sequences were first discovered in the poliovirus and encephalomyocarditis virus RNA genomes [11, 27], but a growing number of cellular IRES-containing transcripts are being identified with the potential to be translated via cap-independent mechanisms [12].
(14) Like other typical IFNs, these cytokines have been also demonstrated to play a key role in the negative regulation of cytopathic viruses such as encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV), (15) vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), (15) cytomegalovirus (CMV), (16) influenza A virus (IAV), (17) respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), (18) hepatitis C virus (HCV), (18) and herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2).
The NLRP3 inflammasome is well characterized and many viruses such as adenovirus, influenza A virus, HIV, encephalomyocarditis virus, and RSV are known to promote IL-1[beta] production by activating the NLRP3 inflammasome [13, 58-60].
