By using a rhinosvirus/poliovirus type 1 chimera, PV1(RIPO), with the cognate internal ribosome entry site (IRES) of human rhinovirus type 2 (HRV2), we set out to shed light on the mechanism by which this variant expresses its attenuated phenotype in poliovirus-sensitive, CD155 transgenic (tg) mice and cynomolgus monkeys. Here we report that replication of PV1(RIPO) is restricted not only in human cells of neuronal origin, as was reported previously, but also in cells of murine origin at physiological temperature. This block in replication was enhanced at 39.5°C but, remarkably, it was absent at 33°C. PV1(RIPO) variants that overcame the replication block were derived by serial passage under restrictive conditions in either mouse cells or human neuronal cells. All adapting mutations mapped to the 5'-nontranslated region of PV1(RIPO). Variants selected in mouse cells, but not in human neuronal cells, exhibited increased mouse neurovirulence in vivo. The observed strong mouse-specific defect of PV1(RIPO) at nonpermissive temperature correlated with the translational activity of the HRV2 IRES in this chimeric virus. These unexpected results must be kept in mind when poliovirus variants are tested in CD155 tg mice for their neurovirulent potential, particularly in assays of live attenuated oral poliovirus vaccine lots. Virulence may be masked by adverse species-specific conditions in mouse cells that may not allow accurate prediction of neurovirulence in the human host. Thus, novel poliovirus variants in line for possible development of human vaccines must be tested in nonhuman primates.
