Anti-EAV Drug Discovery Products

Equine Arteritis Virus (EAV) is a member of the Arteriviridae family and the genus Alpharterivirus. This enveloped, positive-sense RNA virus is renowned for its impact on horses, causing Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA). With a genome comprising a single strand of RNA, EAV encodes both structural and non-structural proteins critical for its lifecycle. Seven structural proteins consist of the nucleocapsid protein N, the envelope proteins M and E, and the N-glycosylated membrane proteins GP2b, GP3, GP4, and GP5. The virus primarily infects horses, with stallions being more susceptible than mares. Cross-species transmission is limited to horses and related species. EAV infection can lead to a range of clinical manifestations, from respiratory distress to reproductive issues, making it a significant concern in the equine industry. The virus enters host cells through specific membrane receptors, initiating replication and leading to the characteristic symptoms. While EAV lacks a specific antiviral treatment, understanding its genome and proteins is crucial for developing effective preventive measures.
