Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Animal arteriviruses and coronaviruses, such as porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and chicken infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), cause significant economic losses to the animal industry. PRRSV primarily infects macrophages and dendritic cells, which serve as an ideal model system to study host-pathogen interactions, especially the immune evasion mechanisms. Interestingly, IBV, a prototype of coronavirus, causes polyclonal activation of leukocytes in animals. Porcine respiratory coronavirus, on the other hand, has been used as a model system to better understand the pathogenesis of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) virus in humans. Equine arteritis virus and bovine coronavirus are also important pathogens that cause severe diseases in their respective host species.

This special issue of “ Viruses” focuses on broad aspects of animal arteriviruses and coronaviruses, which include, but are not limited to, virus replication and assembly, virus-host interactions, role of viral structural and nonstructural proteins in viral pathogenesis and immunity, and their potential applications in vaccine development.
