Therefore, it is possible that WNV-Cp changes the host cell transcriptional machinery, resulting in an over expression of certain proteins related to an apoptotic program, which consequently feed back to the mitochondria, or that as WNV-Cp moves from the cytoplasm to the nucleus, it may sequester or inactivate an important member of the antiapoptotic pathway or the cell cycle pathway, and thus induce the apoptotic cascade.
