How Herpes Evades the Immune Response To Infect the Brain

Herpes simplex virus (HSV1) replication in brain slices was strongly impaired in the absence of its VP1-2 protein's de-ubiquitination activity (ΔDUB, bottom row), as shown here by the reduced number of virus-producing cells (black). This highlights VP1-2's role in suppressing immunity. Credit: Bodda et al. 2020
