The serum-free medium from Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) infected Baby Hamster Kidney-21 (BHK-21) cell cultures was analyzed by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS) to identify host proteins that were secreted upon viral infection. Five proteins were identified, including the molecular chaperones Hsp90, GRP78, and Hsp70. The functional role of GRP78 in the JEV life cycle was then investigated. Co-migration of GRP78 with JEV particles in sucrose density gradients was observed and co-localization of viral E protein with GRP78 was detected by immunofluorescence analysis in vivo. Knockdown of GRP78 expression by siRNA did not effect viral RNA replication, but did impair mature viral production. Mature viruses that do not co-fractionate with GPR78 displayed a significant decrease in viral infectivity. Our results support the hypothesis that JEV co-opts host cell GPR78 for use in viral maturation and in subsequent cellular infections.

Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus, a member of the family Flaviviridae, and causes serious viral encephalitis in humans [1, 2]. JEV is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA genome of 11 kb nucleotides long, which contains a 5' cap structure but lacks a 3' polyadenylated tail [3, 4]. This genomic RNA consists of a single open reading frame (ORF) flanked with two noncoding regions (NCRs) at the 5' and 3' ends . The ORF is translated into a polyprotein precursor and subsequently processed into ten mature proteins by both host and viral proteases. The structural proteins are: the capsid (C), the premembrane (prM, which is further processed into pr and M), and the envelope (E) proteins; while there are seven nonstructural proteins; NS1, NS2A, NS2B, NS3, NS4A, NS4B, and NS5 . The nonstructural proteins, together with cellular factors, form a viral replicase complex that directs the replication of the genomic RNA in the cytoplasm of the host cell, in association with perinuclear membranes [6, 7]. During JEV assembly and release, it has been proposed that like other flaviviruses, immature virions are generally formed by the budding of a viral nucleocapsid into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where prM-E heterodimers are acquired. The mature virions are released into the extracellular compartment through the cellular secretory pathway [5, 8].
Upon viral infection host cell protein expression is induced leading to the production of cytoplasmic proteins and secretory inflammatory cytokines. There is growing evidence that mature virus particles associate and/or contain host proteins once they are released from the host cell. These proteins may provide viruses with means to escape host immune defense or with a mechanism for its release as well as subsequent cell entry. For example, the differential expression pattern of secretion proteins from mock- and Dengus virus (DV)-infected HepG2 cells were identified and compared: eighty-six proteins have been identified among the secreted proteins of HepG2 cells . In addition, proteomic analysis has revealed heat shock cognate protein 70 (HSC70) as part of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) viral particles. Down-regulation of HSC70 resulted in reduction of HCV virion release but not affecting HCV replication in cell culture system, suggesting that HSC70 modulates HCV infectivity .
The identification and functional analysis of secreted proteins from JEV-infected cells may reveal a role for host cell proteins in JEV pathogenesis. No global profile of secreted proteins from JEV-infected cells has yet been performed. To this end, we analyzed the effects of JEV infection on the profile of protein secretion of BHK-21 cells by developing a serum-free culture method in combination with LC-MS. We have identified 5 secreted proteins, including the molecular chaperones Hsp90, Hsp70, and GRP78. The role of GRP78 within the JEV life cycle was investigated. Our observations support the hypothesis that JEV co-opts GRP78 to play a role in viral infectivity.

GRP78 was present in JEV-infected secretion medium
GRP78 co-migrates with JE virus particles
Since the GRP78 was been detected only in the secretion medium from JEV-infected cells, we tested whether GRP78 was associated with JE virions. To this end, the secretion media collected from 3 dpi (days post infection) JEV-infected cells were subjected to 20%-60% continuous sucrose density gradient centrifugation. A volume of 0.5 mL fractions were collected and analyzed by Western blot. Co-migration of GRP78 with viral E protein was observed in fractions 3-6 (lane 3-6, Figure 3B). There were some fractions (fractions 7-10) where the viral E protein did not co-migrate with GRP78 (lane 7-10, Figure 3B). To further characterize the association of GRP78 with viral E protein, the secretion medium was treated with high-salt prior to sucrose density fractionation. No co-migration of GRP78 with viral E protein was observed (data not shown). These results indicate the association of GRP78 and viral E protein occur during viral particle release instead of during the centrifugation process.
The co-localization of GPR78 with viral E protein in JEV-infected cells
Modulation of JE viral RNA release by GRP78
JEV infectivity correlates with the presence of GPR78
We analyzed the effects of JEV infection on the profile of proteins secreted by BHK-21 cells. Five secreted proteins were identified, including the molecular chaperones Hsp90, Hsp70, and GRP78. Co-migration of GRP78 with JEV particles in sucrose density gradients was observed and co-localization of viral E protein with GRP78 was detected by immunofluorescence in vivo. These observations suggest a physical interaction between JEV and GRP78. Knockdown of GRP78 expression by siRNA did not effect viral RNA replication, but did impair mature viral production. These data suggest that GRP78 does not modulate the intracellular replication levels of JEV, but instead is involved in the assembly or release steps of the viral life cycle. Mature viruses that do not co-fractionate with GPR78 displayed a significant decrease in viral infectivity. In combination, our results support the hypothesis that JEV co-opts host cell GPR78 for use in viral maturation and in subsequent cellular infections.
GRP78 is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-associated chaperone protein, a member of Hsp70 family. GRP78 is a major regulator of cell's unfolded-protein response (UPR), which is the cell's response to ER stress. In general, ER stress causes the sequestration of GRP78 and leads to the induction of a cascade of activation of proteins that can inhibit protein translation and assist protein refolding [26–29]. While GRP78 itself is protective against cell death , prolonged and extensive UPR and ER stress leads to apoptosis [26–29].
Induction of the UPR accompanied by GRP78 up-regulation and cell death has been described for a number of viruses, including bovine viral diarrhea virus , Tula virus , West Nile virus , Japanese encephalitis virus , and Dengue virus , the last four of which are in the flavivirus family. Infection by the hepatitis C virus (HCV), also a member of the family Flaviviridae and related to JEV, induces the GRP78 promoter and GRP78 mRNA levels are induced in cells expressing the HCV subgenomic replicon  or the HCV envelope [31, 32]. Additionally, expression of the HCV structural proteins can induce GRP78 protein, ER stress, and CHOP-mediated apoptosis . Recently, GRP78 has been shown to be up-regulated in DENV-infected cells and is necessary for DENV antigen production and/or accumulation. A similar report has also shown that GRP78 was up-regulated in the HCV-infected cells in an in vivo mouse model of HCV infection in association with ER stress and hepatocyte apoptosis . Although there is strong evidence for the viral dependent induction of GRP78, the potential role of GRP78 in the viral life cycle is unclear. We have observed that knockdown of GRP78 expression by siRNA did not effect viral RNA replication, but did impair mature viral production, suggesting GRP78 is involved in the assembly or release steps of the JE viral life cycle.
Little is known about the exact mechanism of JEV (and other flavivirus) infectious particle assembly. For flaviviruses, some studies have identified a perinuclear structure, referred to as the cytoplasmic assembly compartment that is involved in the process . Several viral proteins such as the structural protein E and prM and the nonstructural protein NS3 and NS1 have been reported to play an essential role in the process via an unknown mechanism . It has been suggested that the virus directs specific viral and cellular proteins to the assembly compartment as needed for assembly compartment function. In our study, GRP78 co-localized with the viral E protein. Some studies have suggested that the formation of the assembly compartment may cause the condensation of other cytoplasmic structures [34, 35]. These studies noted that the ER becomes located toward the periphery of the cell relative to the assembly compartment. The localization of GRP78 in nuclei and next to perinuclear structures may indicate co-localization with assembly compartments . The intracellular co-localization of GRP78 with viral E protein upon JEV infection indicating that GRP78 was associated with the JE virus particle prior to release, which is similar to what was observed in this study. Our results, together with other reports, suggest that the GRP78-containing condensed ER structures is involved in the formation of the viral particle assembly compartment, especially in some flaviviruses.
JEV and/or other flaviviruses cell entry mechanisms are not well characterized. However, some links between viral infectivity and secreted proteins and, more specifically, chaperones have been described. The differential expression pattern of secreted proteins from mock- and Dengue virus (DV)-infected HepG2 cells were identified . The up-regulation of signal peptide-containing secreted proteins in DV-infected HepG2 cells suggested that at least in part the secretion might be a result of the classical secretion pathway . In addition, a proteomic analysis revealed that heat shock cognate protein 70 (HSC70) as part of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) viral particles. Down-regulation of HSC70 resulted in reduction of HCV virion release but not affecting HCV replication in cell culture system, suggesting that HSC70 modulates HCV infectivity .
Studies have revealed that following initial attachment to the cell surface JEV is recruited to the plasma membrane lipid raft (LR) prior to internalization of the particles. These studies suggested that flavivirus may use the LR as a platform to interact with additional host cell factors(s) required for efficient flaviviruses internalization. Because GRP78 does not contain transmembrane regions on the cell surface, we propose that GRP78 interacts with other factors to promote cell entry. Indeed, it has been reported that cell surface GRP78 interacts with diverse proteins, such as major histocompatibility complex class I molecules , the voltage-dependent anion channel , and the DnaJ-like protein MTJ-1 , all of which associate with LR in the plasma membrane [39–41]. Once JEV has attached to the cell surface, we speculate that it might utilize such GRP78-associated LR proteins for efficient cell surface attachment or internalization. In this study, we identified two other chaperones, HSP70 and HSP90 in the JEV-infected secretion medium in addition to GRP78 (Table 1). We hypothesize that both of the chaperones may interact with GRP78 to form the "chaperone-associated LR proteins" that facilitate more efficient cell surface attachment and/or internalization of the virus particle. Further studies are required for a full understanding of the cell association processes, especially receptor binding of JEV.
Cell culture and Viruses
Baby Hamster Kidney-21 (BHK-21) cells were grown in RPMI 1640 medium (Gibco-Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA, USA) supplemented with 5% fetal bovine serum (FBS) (Gibco-BRL, Carlsbad, CA, USA), 100 units penicillin (Gibco), 50 μg/mL streptomycin (Gibco-BRL, Carlsbad, CA, USA), and 24 mM sodium bicarbonate (Sigma, St. Louis, USA), and maintained at 37°C in an atmosphere of 5% CO2. The viral stocks were generated via γ-ray treatment of the Taiwan JEV NT109 strain, called RP-9 (provided by Dr. Ching-Len Liao, National Defense University, Taiwan). For infection of BHK-21 cells, we first replaced medium with serum-free RPMI-1640 medium for one hour, followed by infection with a multiplicity of infection (MOI) of 1 or 10. The JEV infected BHK-21 cells were then incubation for 2 days at 37°C in an atmosphere of 5% CO2 before being harvested for further experiments.
RNA preparation and real-time PCR
RNA extraction was performed as described . Briefly, total RNA was extracted with Trizol reagent (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA, USA) and viral RNA was extracted using QIAamp® viral RNA mini kit (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany). JEV specific single-stranded cDNA was made from 2 μg of cytoplasmic RNA harvested from infected BHK-21 cells at 1 day post infection when infected at an MOI of 10. RNA was incubated with 10 μM of primer (5'-GCTAAGCATGTTCATCACTA-3'), and the reactions were carried out using the high capacity reverse transcription kit (Applied Biosystems, Carlsbad, California, USA) under conditions recommended by the manufacturer. The RT reaction was carried out at 37°C for 120 min, followed by PCR amplification of 2 μL aliquots of the TaqMan Fast Universal PCR Master Mix (Applied Biosystems, Carlsbad, California, USA) using an ABI 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR system (Applied Biosystems, Carlsbad, California, USA). The reactions were carried out under the following conditions: 95°C for 10 minutes, followed by 40 cycles of 95°C for 30 seconds and 60°C for 20 sec. The target sequences were amplified by using the following primer pairs and fluorogenic TaqMan probes: JEV RNA, forward (5'-GTTTTGGGAGCCTTACTTGT-3', corresponding to nt 3,642-3,662), reverse (5'-GCTAAGCATGTTCATCACTA-3', corresponding to nt 3,801-3,821), and probe (5'-6FAM-CATACCTCGCCAAATCA-MGBNFQ-3', corresponding to nt 3,689-3,705). Samples were run in 15 duplicates and a reaction without an aliquot of the RT reaction mixture was used to establish baseline fluorescence levels. Data were based on a threshold cycle (CT) in which the signal was higher than that of background. Quantitative analysis was dependent on the standard curve of standard sample Ct value and copy number, the RNA product of the standard sample were diluted from 1011 to 106 of the copy number before RT.
siRNA transfection assay
GRP78 siRNA were synthesized by Invitrogen with sequences of 5'-GUGCGUACGUAGCUAGC-3'. Scrambled siRNA was designed and synthesized by Invitrogen (medium GC of StealthTM RNAi negative control duplex, cat. No.12935). The siRNA transfection was conducted using Lipofectamine RNAiMAX (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, California), adding 10 μL Lipofectamine RNAiMAX and 10 μg of siRNA in 1 ml Opti-MEM (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, California), followed by incubation for 30 min at room temperature. The mixture was then added with 4 mL cell growth medium for 2 days, and the GRP78 protein was detected in siRNA transfected cells by Western blot using anti-GRP78 specific antibody (Abcam, Cambridge, MA).
The protein samples of mock and JEV-infected BHK-21 cell lysates as well as secretion medium (collected from the supernatant of JEV-infected BHK-21 cells at 2 days post infection) were prepared by direct lysis of cell monolayers with 1x sample loading buffer (80 mM Tri-HCl pH 6.8, 2.0% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), 10% glycerol, 0.1 M DTT, and 0.2% bromophenol blue). An equal amount of cell lysates was boiled for 5 min, separated by 12% SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, and then electro-transferred to a methanol-activated polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) membrane (Bio-Rad Laboratories, Hercules, CA). The membrane was treated with 5% (wt/vol) nonfat dried milk in TBS-T buffer (20 mM Tris pH 8.8, 137 mM NaCl, and 0.1% Tween 20) at room temperature for 1 hour, followed by three 10-minute washes with TBS-T buffer. The membrane was then incubated in TBS-T buffer containing 0.5% nonfat dried milk at room temperature for 2 hours with a mouse anti-JEV NS1/NS5/E (1:1,000 dilution) (YaoHong Biotechnology Inc., New Taipei City, Taiwan), or rabbit anti-β-actin antiserum (1:10,000 dilution) (Sigma, St. Louis, USA). The primary antibody-decorated PVDF membrane was again washed three times with TBS-T buffer and incubated with an HRP-conjugated goat anti-mouse or anti-rabbit IgG (Sigma, St. Louis, USA), as appropriate, at a 1:5,000 dilution in TBS-T buffer containing 0.5% nonfat dried milk at room temperature for 1 hour. Following three 10-minute washes with TBS-T buffer the membrane was developed by ECL (Millipore, MA, USA).
Viral plaque assay
BHK-21 cells were seeded in 6-well plates at 4 × 105 cells per well, followed by incubation overnight in RPMI 1640 medium containing 5% FBS to a form monolayer. The serial 10-fold dilutions of the sucrose gradient fractions or supernatant of JEV infected medium were prepared in serum-free RPMI medium before infection. After 1 day, the monolayer BHK-21 cells were incubated with serum-free RPMI 1640 medium for 1 hour and then the 0.5 mL of 10-fold dilutions and 0.5 mL of serum-free RPMI 1640 medium were added per monolayer BHK-21 for one hour. We prepared the 0.3% seaplaque agarose (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA) in 5% serum RPMI 1640 medium, adding 2 mL 0.3% seaplaque agarose per well after the monolayer cells washed with serum free RPMI 1640 medium. The 6 well TC plates were incubated at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow the 0.3% agarose overlay to solidify. The 6 well TC plates were then incubated at 37°C for 4 days. Finally, the cells were fixed with 2 mL of 10% formaldehyde, and kept for 30 minutes at room temperature (22-25°C), and the overlay of 0.3% agarose was removed. The monolayer cells were stained with crystal violet stain solution (0.5% crystal violet, 1.85% Formalin, 50% EtOH, 0.85% NaCl) (Sigma) for 2 minutes, and washed with ddH2O. The plaque-forming units (pfu/mL) was calculated with the virus titer formula, where virus titer equals the number of plaque × (1 mL/0.5 mL) × dilution factor.
Sucrose density gradient analysis
The secretion medium of infected BHK-21 cells (2 days post-infection at MOI of 10) was centrifuged at 6,000 rpm for 20 minutes in 4°C to remove cell debris, and was concentrated with a concentration tube (Millipore, MA, USA) at 6,000 rpm for 20 minutes. The secretion and concentrated medium was layered onto a 20% to 60% sucrose linear gradient in HEPES buffer (20 mM HEPES, 0.5 mM EDTA, 50 mM KCl) and centrifuged at 40,000 rpm for 17 hours in 4°C. There were 10 fractions (1 mL/fraction) were harvested from the top of the sucrose gradients.
Immunofluorescence and antisera
For immunofluorescent staining, cells were cultured on glass coverslips, rinsed with PBS twice, fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde in PBS for 30 min at room temperature, and then permeabilized with 0.1% (vol/vol) Triton X-100 in PBS for 30 min and incubated in 2% blocking buffer (Roche, Indianapolis, IN) for 1 hour. The cells were then incubated sequentially with primary antibodies: mouse anti-E protein (Yao-Hong Biotechnology Inc, New Taipei city, Taiwan); rabbit anti-GRP78 (Bioworld, Minnesota, USA) and secondary antibodies: (conjugated with Rodamine) and (conjugated with FITC). After immunostaining, coverslips were mounted on slides in gelvatol medium containing 4-6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI (Vector Laboratories, Inc., Burlingame, CA); 500 ng/mL in PBS). Images were acquired using a Zeiss confocal microscope (LSM 510) and processed with Adobe Photoshop software (Adobe, CA).
