  • We compared apathogenic (Tula and Topografov) and pathogenic (Puumala and Seoul) hantaviruses in their ability to regulate cellular signaling pathways and observed a direct virus-mediated down-regulation of external signal-regulated kinases 1 and 2 (ERK1 / 2) survival pathway activity, which was dramatically enhanced by TNF-alpha.
