Baker, et al. (2021)
He we show how an enzyme involved in mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis has a minor isoform that moonlights as an antiviral protein.
Amato, et al. (2021)
Why does influenza virus appear to evolve so slowly within an individual? Our data suggest replication islands and genetic bottlenecks restrain evolution.
Tran*, Ledwith*, et al. (2020)
A mystery to solve when an anti-viral protein is not an anti-viral protein.
King and Mehle (2020)
What we know, and what we don’t know, about cellular co-factors during infection.
Dawson, et al. (2020)
Here we review how post-translational modifications afford dynamic and localized control of proteins during viral infection.
Dawson, et al. (2020)
Mechanistic dissection of phosphorylation events on the viral polymerase.
Larson, Tran, et al. (2019)
We laugh in the face of experimental variability and exploit this to find new host factors regulating flu.
Schaack and Mehle (2019)
Everything you ever wanted to know about experimental techniques used to find viral host factors.
Ristow, et al. (2019)
A collaboration that brings the Mehle lab its first paper on bacterial pathogensis.
Baker and Mehle (2019)
Our synthesis of recent ANP32 papers.
Baker, et al. (2018)
How differences in ANP32A coding and splicing impact influenza polymerase activity, and possibly evolution in a diverse host range.
Dawson and Mehle (2018)
Dynamic control of influenza virus by post-translation modification.
Karlsson, et al. (2018)
Using “glowy” flu to measure replication.
Mondal, et al. (2017)
Phosphorylation regulates assembly of the viral replication machinery. He we identify the PKC family of kinases, especially PKCδ, as major players in this regulatory scheme.
Mehle A (2016)
Avian influenza virus polymerases function poorly in mammals, restricting transmission across species and the emergence of pandemic outbreaks. We discuss new work from the Barclay lab implicating ANP32A as a crucial cellular protein that dictates species-specific polymerase activity.
Kirui J, Tran V, Mehle A (2016)
Our book chapter describing host factors that control the influenza polymerase and replication machinery.
Kirui J, Mondal A, Mehle A. (2016)
Ubiquitination and the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway play key roles during multiple stages of influenza virus infection. We now show that these processes modulate viral polymerase activity independent of protein degradation.
Mehle A (2015)
Our “Pearl” discussing the use of bioluminescence imaging for studying replication dynamics in vivo
Mondal A, Potts GK, Dawson AR, Coon JJ, Mehle A (2015)
How does influenza virus regulate assembly of its replication machinery? Here we show that phosphorylation of NP is critical for proper formation of the replication machinery and new virions.
Tran V, Poole DS, Jeffery JJ, Sheahan TP, Creech D, Yevtodiyenko A, Peat AJ, Francis KP, You S, Mehle A (2015)
Developing and applying a diverse collection of reporter viruses to measure virus replication and inflammation in live animals.
Karlsson EA, Meliopoulos VA, Savage C, Livingston B, Mehle A, Schultz-Cherry S (2015)
In collaboration with the Schultz-Cherry lab, we use bioluminescence imaging to measure replication and transmission between ferrets in real time.
Poole DS, Yú S, Caì Y, Dinis JM, Müller MA, Jordan I, Friedrich TC, Kuhn JH, Mehle A (2014)
Bats appear to be a reservoir for a large number of viruses that spill over into humans. Following on the recent identification of a unique lineage of influenza virus in bats, we asked what it takes for human influenza viruses to adapt and replicate in bat cells.
Mehle A (2014)
A brief review of the ancient lineage of influenza viruses recently found circulating in wild bat populations in Central and South American. We discuss the unique features of these viruses, their place in the evolution of Orthomyxoviridae and their potential (or not) to cause disease in humans.
Kirui J, Bucci MD, Poole DS, Mehle A (2014)
The 627 domain of the viral polymerase is a major determinant of host range. Here we identify key structural and biochemical properties required for general activity and species-specific functionality.
Tran V, Moser LA, Poole DS, Mehle A (2013)
Stemming from our love-hate relationship with plaque assays, we developed reporter viruses that faithfully recapitulate influenza virus replication and used these to perform longitudinal measures during infections in mice.
