Figure 17.2 in Basic Virology [12], illustrating the replication cycle of the closely related SV40 in a permissive cell, shows no viral integration but provides no references to associated experimental evidence.
The higher load and longer detection of Zika virus RNA in this compartment might be attributable to Zika virus replication in permissive cells of the skin (e.g., human dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes); capillaries; or both (6).
A primary difficulty in modifying permissive cells for the strategies mentioned above lies in their "personalization" in that permissive cells of each patient must be collected and modified instead of manufacturing and using the same type of drug, as in traditional therapies.
In permissive cells, in fact, the JCV entry into the nucleus is followed by the transcription of the early gene TAg.
