The potential for this emerging ameba-resistant bacterium to cause keratitis remains to be analyzed, but we observed that this mobile symbiont lysed the reference amebal strain, demonstrating its cytopathogenicity. Also, ameba-resistant organisms do comprise acknowledged opportunistic pathogens (2), and corneal toxicity was previously reported as significantly higher for Acanthamoeba-hosting endosymbionts (10).

We carried out PVSRIPO infections of TRAMP-C2 clones 5 and 6, representing expression extremes, and of clone 1, with intermediate CD155 levels, and assessed viral propagation and cytopathogenicity (Figure 3, C).

The results demonstrated that cells treated with three different sequences of siRNA had a five-fold drop in the amount of infected cells evaluated by direct immunofluorescence test when compared to controls, with no cytopathogenicity due to the treatment.

None of the other Schiff bases exhibited specific antiviral activity, which means that they do not inhibit replication (formation of viral cytopathogenicity) of any the viruses tested at a concentration that was =5-fold lower than the minimum cytotoxic concentration.
