Production of infectious genotype 1b virus particles in cell culture and impairment by replication enhancing mutations.

... genomes with REMs do not support production of infectious virus particles. In this study we show that except for one mutation in non-structural protein 4B, REMs interfere with the assembly of infectious virus particles, whereas an unaltered HCV genome supports production of cell culture–derived virus that is infectious in vitro and in vivo. Our observations ... efficient production of infectious HCV in cell culture so far has only been achieved with a genotype 2a HCV isolate (designated JFH-1) that replicates to very high levels without requiring REMs [28,29]. Employing transient replication and virus release assays in this study we demonstrate that REMs interfere with the production of infectious HCV particles. ... Con1/K1846T transfected Huh-7 cells release infectious HCV particles. Their production is blocked by various REMs, most notably those residing in the NS3 helicase. Thus, save for the single substitution in NS4B tested here, mutations that enhance RNA replication interfere with virus assembly. Discussion Production of infectious HCV in cell culture so far
