Abstract in Portuguese
A raiva é uma antropozoonose e causa a morte de 55 mil pessoas anualmente no mundo. Neste trabalho foi utilizado um sistema genético derivado do Vírus da Floresta de Semliki (SFV) carregando RNA para expressão gênica da glicoproteína do vírus da raiva (RVGP) e da proteína verde fluorescente (GFP), a título de controle do experimento. Lotes de partículas virais de SFV-RVGP e SFV-GFP foram obtidos em células BHK-21 e quantificados através de qRT-PCR. Foram realizados ensaios de infecção tanto com vírus ativado e não ativado em duas linhagens de macrófagos murinos IC-21 e J774A-1. A expressão da proteína RVGP foi avaliada pelo teste de Imunofluorescência Indireta (IFI) e a expressão da proteína GFP analisada por Microscopia de Fluorescência e Citometria de Fluxo em ambas as linhagens. A entrada do vírus SFV em células de mamíferos ocorre após 2 horas da infeção e de acordo com o experimento no qual analisamos a titulação viral do sobrenadante celular, indicaram que até as 72 horas pós infecção a titulação viral se manteve com o mesmo valor inicial, sugerindo que não houve entrada dos vírus na célula por transdução ou por fagocitose.

Abstract in English
Rabies is a anthropozoonosis and causes the death of 55,000 people worldwide each year. In this work we used a genetic system derived from the Semliki forest virus (SFV) carrying RNA for gene expression of the rabies virus glycoprotein (RVGP) and green fluorescent protein (GFP), by way of experiment control. Plots of viral particles of SFV-RVGP and SFV-GFP were obtained in BHK-21 cells and quantified by qRT-PCR. Infection assays were performed both with activated and not activated in two virus strains of murine macrophages IC-21 and J774A-1. The expression of RVGP protein was assessed by indirect immunofluorescence test (IFI) and the expression of GFP protein analyzed by fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry in both strains. The SFV entry of viruses into mammalian cells occurs after 2 hours of infection and according to the experiment in which we analyzed the viral titer of the cell supernatant showed that by 72 hours post-infection viral titer remained at the same initial value, suggesting no entry of virus into the cell by transduction or by phagocytosis.
