Distinction of Cells Infected with Respiratory Syncytial Virus by Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry
呼吸道合胞病毒（Respiratory syncytial virus，RSV）是引起婴幼儿急性下呼吸道感染及免疫缺陷的常见病原，也是老年、病弱群体中诱发免疫抑制的重要病原。本研究利用基质辅助激光解析/电离质谱（MALDI-MS），对RSV病毒感染宿主细胞的变化进行考察。结果表明，在分子量为5000~10000 Da范围内，有3组信号峰在正常组和感染组中表达均有显著变化，其中1个差异组分在RSV感染之后表达上调（m/z 6154.25），2个差异组分在RSV感染后表达下调（m/z 7658.47和9259.82）。本方法无需对细胞样品进行复杂处理，采用MALDI-MS证明了感染细胞与未感染细胞前后表达存在显著差异，直接获得细胞在病毒感染后产生的反应应答模式和细胞生理功能改变的信息，为呼吸道合胞病毒疾病诊断与病理研究提供了实验基础。
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), which is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections during infancy and childhood, is also an important pathogen for immunosuppression in elder and diseased areas. In order to research the pathogenesis of RSV, the matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS)was used to explore the difference between uninfected cells and virus-infected cells. The result showed that, in the molecular weight range of 5000~10000 Da, there are three component peaks expressed with significant difference in both normal group and infection group. One of the three components was up-regulated (m/z 6154.25) and the other two were down-regulated (m/z 7658.47 and 9259.82) after RSV infection. This result proved the obvious differences between the infected cells and untreated cells.The differential expression may provide a feasible method for RSV disease diagnosis and pathology research, and also provide scientific evidences for research on development of RSV therapeutic drugs.
