Abstract
Junín virus (JUNV), a member of the family Arenaviridae, is the etiological agent of Argentine hemorrhagic fever (AHF), a potentially deadly endemic-epidemic disease affecting the population of the most fertile farming land of Argentina. Autophagy is a degradative process with a crucial antiviral role; however, several viruses subvert the pathway to their benefit. We determined the role of autophagy in JUNV-infected cells by analyzing LC3, a cytoplasmic protein (LC3-I) that becomes vesicle membrane associated (LC3-II) upon induction of autophagy. Cells overexpressing enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP)-LC3 and infected with JUNV showed an increased number ...
