We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms by which cellular factors and viral proteins are involved in the multiplication and pathogenesis of human hepatitis viruses and SARS coronavirus. 

        A. Molecular virology and pathogenesis of human hepatitis viruses.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) possesses a positive single-stranded RNA genome that consists of a single open reading frame flanking by a highly conserved 5’ noncoding region and 3’ noncoding region.  Mechanisms involved in the replication of HCV are not fully understood.  Nevertheless, we have identified a specific interaction between the HCV NS5B RNA-dependent RNA polymerase and the 3’ coding region of the viral genome critical for HCV replication.   HCV infection often develops chronic liver diseases and is strongly associated with hepatocellular carcinoma.  The structural protein core and nonstructural proteins S3, NS4B, and NS5A have been indicated to have oncogenic potential, whereas NS4A is the cofactor of NS3 protease. Towards understanding the viral proteins and cellular factors involved in the oncogenesis of HCV, we have perform microarray analysis and GST pull-down assay and identified several cellular factors that are regulated by or associated with the viral proteins.  Biological significances of the cellular factors involved in the pathogenesis are currently under investigated.  On the other hand, hepatitis delta virus (HDV) may cause severe chronic hepatitis and fulminant hepatitis.  In collaboration with MF Chang (Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), we have recently identified a novel nuclear export signal-interacting protein (NESI) critical for HDV ssembly. The molecular mechanism of NESI involved in the nuclear export and viral assembly are being examined. 

B. Molecular virology and pathogenesis of SARS coronavirus.

During the outbreak of SARS in 2003, we also joined the studies on SARS coronavirus.  In collaboration with MF Chang (Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) and CL Kao (Department of Clinical Laboratory Science and Medical Biotechnology), we have completed the sequences of the whole genome of TW1 strain.  The viral structural proteins were successfully expressed in mammalian culture systems and a packaging signal required for the assembly of the viral RNA was determined.  We are currently working on understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the viral assembly and pathogenesis.
