Introduction: What they say

A study from the Department of Immunology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98109, USA; Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98109, USA shows that “RIPK3 Restricts Viral Pathogenesis via Cell Death-Independent Neuroinflammation.” This research paper was published in the 30 March 2017 issue of the journal “Cell” [One of the best research journals in General biology with an I.F of 28.710] by Prof. Andrew Oberst, Brian P. Daniels and others.


What we say:

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-derived antiviral therapy against Neuroinvasive West Nile virus: Cirsilol (3′,4′,5-trihydroxy-6,7-dimethoxyflavone), a flavone isolated from Achillea fragrantissima, an O-methylated flavonol found in Cloves, increases the expression of RIPK3, promotes chemokines production, inhibits neuroinflammation, and restricts neuroinvasive West Nile virus production and pathogenesis in neurons via up regulation of its target gene

What is known?

Prof. Andrew Oberst’s research team has recently shown that mice deficient in Receptor-interacting protein kinase-3 (RIPK3): a) are highly susceptible to neuroinvasive West Nile virus (WNV); b) poorly induce chemokine expression in neurons; and c) poorly recruit T lymphocytes and inflammatory myeloid cells in central nervous system (CNS).


From Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

This study suggests, for the first time, a natural product-based antiviral therapy against RNA viruses such as neuroinvasive West Nile virus (WNV).

Cirsilol, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of RIPK3 (Figure 1). Thereby, it may: (1) augment chemokine levels; (2) trigger neuroinflammation; (3) stall neuroinvasive West Nile virus replication; (4) promote clearance of neuroinvasive West Nile virus (WNV); and (5) strengthen antiviral immunity against RNA viruses.

Cirsilol inhibits the production of west nile virus via induciton of RIPK3

Figure 1. Cirsilol functions as an antiviral agent. Cirsilol inhibits neuroinvasive West Nile virus (WNV) pathogenesis via up regulation of its target gene RIPK3

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Cirsilol or its analogues either alone or in combination with any of the known antiviral compounds” may be used to treat infections caused by neuroinvasive West Nile virus (Figures 1-2 ).
