Abstract

H5N1 influenza viruses, which cause disease in humans, have unusually high pathogenicity. The temporal response of primary human monocyte-derived macrophages infected with highly pathogenic H5N1 and seasonal H1N1 influenza viruses was evaluated using mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomic profiling. This was done in order to demonstrate significant perturbation of the host proteome upon viral infection, as early as 1 hour after infection. This early host response distinguished H5N1 infection from H1N1 infection, the latter inducing less of a response. The most pronounced effect was observed on the translational machinery, suggesting that H5N1 might gain advantage in replication by using the cell protein synthesis machinery early in the infection.
