The vaginal murine HSV-2 infection model is very useful in studying mucosal immunity against HSV-2 (Overall et al., 1975; Renis et al., 1976; Parr and Parr, 2003). Histologically, the vagina of Depo-Provera-treated mice is lined by a single layer of mucus secreting columnar epithelial cells overlying two to three layers of proliferative cells. Even though this is morphologically different from the human vagina, it closely resembles the endocervical epithelium, which is thought to be the primary site of HSV-2 infection in women (Parr et al., 1994; Kaushic et al., 2011). In the protocol presented here, mice are pre-treated with Depo-Provera before intra-vaginal inoculation with HSV-2. The virus replicates in the mucosal epithelium from where it spreads to and replicates in the CNS including the spinal cord, brain stem, cerebrum and cerebellum. Cytokine responses can be detected in vaginal washings using ELISA or in vaginal tissues using qPCR. Further, the recruitment of leukocytes to the vagina can be determined by flow cytometry. The model is suitable for research of both innate and adaptive immunity to HSV-2 infection.

Vaginal infection with HSV-2 has been studied in various animal models, such as rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, mice and monkeys with viral replication at the peripheral site and retrograde transport of virus to the neurons (Nahmias et al., 1971; Overall et al., 1975; Renis, 1977; Stanberry et al., 1982; Roizman et al., 2013). There are several pros and cons regarding the different animal models in terms of susceptibility to infection, latency, spontaneous reactivation of HSV-2 and availability of animals, especially with regard to the accessibility of knockout animals, which have been very useful in studies of immune responses to infection. The vaginal epithelium in the genital tract undergoes significant hormonal changes during the menstrual cycles, and both susceptibility to HSV-2 and the nature of the induced immune responses are regulated and affected by sex hormones (Kaushic et al., 2011). Mice are more susceptible to vaginal HSV-2 infection during pregnancy and during the diestrus stage of the murine estrus cycle, when progesterone levels are the highest (Overall et al., 1975; Baker and Plotkin, 1978; Gallichan and Rosenthal, 1996). Pre-treatment of mice with Depo-Provera, a long-lasting commercial progesterone induces the diestrus stage and increases susceptibility to vaginal HSV-2 infection by 100-fold (Parr et al., 1994; Kaushic et al., 2003).

During the progression of intra-vaginal (i.vag.) HSV-2 infection in mice, the virus initially infects the vaginal epithelial cells in patches that involve the full thickness of the epithelium layer, and the underlying stroma is usually free of infection. The infected epithelial cells are shed off into the vaginal lumen (apical side) and infect the rest of the epithelium. The virus can spread horizontally within the epithelial layers to the epidermis and hair follicles, which results in loss of hair and development of skin lesions (Parr and Parr, 2003; Zhao et al., 2003). Vaginal HSV-2 infection and the resulting replication of the virus seem to be restricted to the vaginal epithelium, with no spread via viremia, as the virus generally cannot be isolated from systemic organs, blood or lymph nodes upon genital HSV infection (Overall et al., 1975; Renis et al., 1976; Podlech et al., 1996; Zhao et al., 2003). HSV-2 reaches dorsal root ganglia (DRG) via sensory neurons that innervate the site of infection, and from there the virus can spread further to the lumbar part of the spinal cord, brain stem and finally the brain (Renis et al., 1976; Georgsson et al., 1987; Podlech et al., 1996; Parr and Parr, 2003). HSV-2 can also spread to parasympathetic neurons via Para-cervical ganglia (major autonomic ganglia) of the bladder and rectum, which can cause retention of urine and feces (Parr and Parr, 2003).

    1. The genetic background of different mouse strains can influence studies and it has been observed that different mouse strains, C57BL/6, BALB/c, SJL/J, PL/J and A/J have different susceptibilities to HSV. C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice are moderately susceptible to HSV, whereas A/J, PL/J and SJL/J mice strains are highly susceptible (Lopez, 1975; Kastrukoff et al., 2012). It has also been observed that 129Sv background mice produce higher amounts of type I and type III IFN compared to C57BL/6 in response to genital HSV-2 infection, nevertheless no difference in viral titer is observed in the vagina after HSV-2 infection (Ank, 2008).
    2. The vaginal HSV-2 infection model is based on pre-treatment with depo-provera. The pre-treatment with progesterone is an artificial intervention but is required for a reproducible enhanced susceptibility to HSV-2 infection in C57BL/6 mice.

  1. Vaginal infection
    1. Mice are pretreated by subcutaneous injection of 200 µl (2 mg/mice, diluted in PBS) of Depo-Provera.
    2. Five days later mice are anesthetized with isoflourane and carefully inoculated with a pipette intra vaginally with 20 μl HSV-2 (6.7 x 104 PFU) suspended in PBS, see Figure 1. It is important not to destroy or damage the vaginal epithelial layer during inoculation as this can interfere with the natural infection.

      Figure 1. Inoculation of virus intravaginally with a pipette

    3. Subsequently, the mice are placed on their back and maintained under anesthesia for 10 min.
    4. Vaginal washes/fluids can be collected at desired time points post infection by pipetting a volume of 40 µl PBS in and out of the vagina 12-15 times, repeated twice, and diluted to a final volume of 250 μl also in PBS. For harvest of vaginas, mice are euthanized by cervical dislocation (c.d.) and vaginas are removed surgically and used for RNA extraction, flow analysis or immunohistochemistry.
    5. The genitally infected animals should be observed and examined daily and scored for vaginal inflammation, neurological illness, weight loss and death. The severity of disease is scored using the following criteria: 0, healthy; 1, genital erythema; 2, moderate genital inflammation; 3, purulent genital lesion/or generally bad conditions; 4, hind limb paralysis or general very poor conditions. Mice must be sacrificed by c.d. when reaching score 4 according to institutional guidelines.

  2. Collection of vaginal washings for measuring viral titers and cytokine production
    1. At desired days post infection, the vagina of the mice are washed by pipetting 2 x 40 μl of PBS in and out of the vagina, which is then further diluted in PBS to a final volume of 250 μl per mouse. Be careful not to damage vaginal epithelial layer.
    2. Mice are anesthetized with isoflurane during the washing procedure. Viral titers and cytokine concentrations in the vaginal wash are usually highest at day 2 post infection.
    3. After the washing, mice can be sacrificed for harvest of whole vaginal tissue for other analysis or continued for survival or disease score recordings.

  3. Virus plaque assay
    1. Place vaginal washes immediately on dry ice and store at -80 °C until analysis.
    2. Virus titers of the vaginal washes are determined on monolayers of Vero cells. Cells are seeded in DMEM supplemented with 5% FCS at a density of 1.2 x 106 cells/tissue culture plate (58 x 15 mm) and left overnight to settle.
    3. The next day the media is discarded and 400 µl fresh DMEM with 5% FCS is added to each tissue culture plate. Subsequently add 100 μl of vaginal washes per culture plate diluted in 10-fold serial dilutions in DMEM with 2% FCS so the total volume is 500 µl in each culture plate. Each culture plate represents one dilution of a vaginal wash. Make duplicates of each dilution.
    4. Incubate cells for 1 h and rock the plates every 15 min to ensure even distribution of the virus. After 1 h 5 ml of DMEM 5% FCS supplemented with 0.2% human immunoglobulin is added.
    5. The tissue culture plates are then further incubated for 2-3 days and stained with 0.03% methylene blue in order to count the plaques.

  4. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
    Note: Paraffin is preferred in contrast to frozen sections in order to preserve morphology. We do not use perfusion fixation because the blood circulation in the vagina seems to be low. The vaginas are instead surgically removed and fixed by immersion in 2% formaldehyde in PBS for 24 h. Work at room temperature if nothing else is stated.
    1. Vaginas are dissected and placed in 2-4% formaldehyde in PBS and fixed for 24 h.
    2. The fixed tissue is placed in tissue processing/embedding cassettes.
    3. Dehydration of fixed tissue: 70% ethanol for 2 h, 96% ethanol for 2 h and 99% for 2 h.
    4. The dehydrated tissue is then placed in xylene for 2 h.
    5. The tissue is embedded in warm (60 °C) paraffin for 2 h.
    6. Cut two-micrometer sections from tissue blocks on a microtome and mount the sections on Super Frost+ slides.
    7. The slides are the dewaxed in xylene 2 x for 4-5 min.
    8. Sections are rehydrated in a series of ethanol: 3 x 99% ethanol (30 min in total), 2 x 96% ethanol (20 min in total) and finally 10 min in 70% ethanol. Then the sections are rinsed in MilliQ water 3-4 times.
    9. Endogenous peroxidase enzymes are blocked using absolute methanol with 0.5% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for 10-15 min.
    10. Sections are boiled in microwave oven in 10 mM Tris, 0.5 mM EGTA (pH 9.0) to reveal antigens. The boiling time depends on the microwave oven ~6 min. full power and then 10 min on half power. This will provide a soft interval-boiling.
    11. Cool down on ice using a rocking platform.
    12. The free aldehyde groups are blocked by 50 mM NH4Cl in PBS for 30 min.
    13. Sections are then washed 3 times (3 x 10 min) in buffer A (see Recipes) and incubated with primary antibody against HSV-2 diluted in buffer B (see Recipes) overnight at 4 °C in a humidity chamber.
    14. The next day take the sections out of the fridge and allow to reach room temp.
    15. Wash with buffer C (see Recipes) (3 x 10 min.) and incubate the sections with HRP-conjugated secondary antibody (P448, 1:200) in buffer B for 1 h.
    16. Rinse in buffer C 3 x (total 30 min).
    17. Antibody binding is visualized by use of 3,3’-diaminobenzidine (DAB) (Kem-En-Tec) in 0.03% H2O2. DAB is freshly made by dissolving 1 tablet in 10 ml MilliQ water and just before use, add 10 µl 35% H2O2.
    18. Rinse in PBS 3 x
    19. The sections are counterstained with Mayer’s or Harris’s hematoxylin solution for 2 min and rinsed for 20 min under running tap water.
    20. The sections are mounted using Eukitt reagent.

  5. Flow cytometry
    1. Single cell suspension of mouse vagina can be obtained by enzymatic and mechanic processing. The dissected vaginas are cut in to small pieces with a scalpel and transferred to a small culture flask (T25). Add 4 ml collagenase/dispase (stock: 1 mg/ml) and 2 ml DNase I (stock: 2 mg/ml) in total 6 ml and incubate under constant stirring at 37 °C for 45 min.
    2. The tissue suspension is then gently mashed using a mortar pestle and filtered through a 70 µm pore size mesh and then passed through a 40 µm pore size mesh (if cells of interest are smaller than 40 µm) and washed with PBS with 0.02% EDTA to stop enzyme activity.
    3. Cells are then centrifuged for 8 min at 300 x g and re-suspended in 200 μl PBS/vagina. The following staining can be done in a round bottom 96-well plate.
    4. Prior to staining the cells are blocked for 10 min on ice with anti-mouse CD16/CD32 Ab (1:100) and mouse and rat IgG (1 µg/ml).
    5. Wash with cold PBS and centrifuge the plate at 300 x g for 4 min at 4 °C.
    6. Stain for LiveDead (7-AAD) (1:1,000 in PBS). Incubate for 15 min on ice.
    7. Wash twice with PBS.
    8. The cells are incubated with primary antibodies in 100 µl for 30 min on ice in the dark and washed in FACS buffer (see Recipies).
    9. The following primary anti-mouse antibodies can be used for flow identification of cell populations: CD45-APC (clone 30-F11), NK1.1-FITC (clone PK136), Nk1.1-PE (clone PK136), CD11b-PE (clone M1/70), Ly-6g-APC (clone 1A8), APC RAT IgG2b, κ Isotype, FITC RAT IgG2a, κ Isotype and PE RAT IgG2a, κ Isotype and 7-AAD (Live/dead cell marker). Flow-count beads can be added to the flow samples just before analysis for determining cell counts.
    10. The cells are resuspended and fixed in 250 μl 1% formaldehyde in PBS.

  6. Detection of cytokines in vaginal washes
    Note: In order to determine the amount of cytokines in the vaginal washes, we utilized ELISA and Luminex technology and for detection of IFN-α/β we used an L929 cell-based bioassay. Cytokines CXCL10, CXCL9, CCL5 (Rantes), IL-6, IFN-λ and IFN-γ can be easily detected by ELISA kits from any supplier. IFN-α/β bioactivity can be measured by use of an L929 cell-based bioassay in a 96-well plate.
    1. Prior to use HSV-2 in the vaginal samples must be inactivated on ice by UV-light treatment for 6 min.
    2. Add 50 µl DMEM 5% FCS to each well in a flat bottom 96-well plate. Each plate can hold 8 different samples/controls (A2-H2) as the samples are diluted across the plate. Column 1 (A1-H1) serves as a cell control and column 12 (A12-H12) as a virus control.
    3. Add 50 µl of vaginal washes or murine IFN-α/β to each well in row 2 (A2-H2). Make successive two-fold dilutions with an 8 arm multipippette down to row 11 (A11-H11).
    4. L929 cells (2 x 104 cells/well in 100 µl) in DMEM supplemented with 5% FCS are added to each well and the plates incubated overnight at 37 °C. L929 cells are grown in DMEM supplemented with 200 IU/ml penicillin, 200 µg/ml streptomycin and 5% FCS.
    5. The next day 50 µl of Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (VSV/V10) (1.6 x 104 PFU/ml) is added to each well EXCEPT row 1 (A1-H1) (serve as a cell control) and the plates are further incubated for 2-3 days.
    6. If there is IFN-α/β in the samples being tested the IFN-α/β will protect the cells against the cytotoxic effect of VSV as observed in the bright field microscope. The dilution mediating 50% protection from virus induced cell death is defined as 1 U of IFN-α/β/ml. The bioassay has a lower detection limit of 6 U/ml.

  7. RNA extraction from tissue and quantitative Real-Time PCR
    Total RNA from isolated vaginas is extracted with TRIzol, according to the recommendations of the manufacturer.
    1. Set the centrifuge with rotor for Eppendorf tubes at 2-3 °C.
    2. Add 100-150 µl DEPC water and a 5 mm steel beads to each sample/vagina and homogenize the tissue using the homogenizer/shaker. Use safety lock Eppendorf tubes. Repeat if needed.
    3. After homogenization immediately place the samples on ice.
    4. Add 500 µl TRIzol to each sample and vortex. (According to Invitrogen use 1 ml TRIzol to 50-100 mg of tissue). Incubate at RT for 5 min.
    5. Add 1:5 chloroform (100 µl in case of 500 µl TRIzol) and vortex until the mixture is ‘candyfloss’ colored. Incubate for 5 min at RT or until two phases can be detected.
    6. Centrifuge for 15 min at 10,000 x g at 4 °C.
    7. Pipet the upper clear phase to new Eppendorf tubes. Avoid the white protein film on the side of the tubes.
    8. Add isopropanol (1:1). Vortex
    9. Place the tubes at -20 °C for 2 h or at RT for 10 min.
    10. Centrifuge for 12 min at 10,000 x g at 4 °C.
    11. Discard the supernatant. The RNA precipitate forms a white gel-like pellet at the bottom of the tube.
    12. Add 0.5 ml ice-cold ethanol (80 %) and vortex briefly. Centrifuge for 4 min at 10,000 x g. Repeat wash step.
    13. Discard the supernatant. Next, air-dry the pellet. If needed use a heating block at 80 °C.
      Note: It can be difficult to dissolve the RNA pellet.
    14. Pellet is re-suspended in 20-50 µl DEPC-water. Vortex.
    15. DNase-free treatment: (Invitrogen Ambion DNA free kit)
      1. Add 0.1 volume 10x DNase I buffer and 1 µl rDNase I to the RNA, and mix gently. Incubate at 37 °C for 20-30 min.
      2. Re-suspend DNase Inactivation Reagent and add 0.1 volume (min. 2 µl) to each sample and mix.
      3. Incubate the samples for 2 min at RT. Mix occasionally. Prepare new Eppendorf tubes.
      4. Centrifuge for 1.5 min at 10,000 x g at 4 °C.
      5. Transfer the suspensions to new Eppendorf tubes. Store the samples at -80 °C.


        1. The RNA concentration can be measured by use of a NanoDrop, A260 for nucleic acid and 280 for protein.
        2. For RNA the 260/280 ratio ≈ 2 is considered pure.

阴道鼠HSV-2感染模型在研究针对HSV-2的粘膜免疫中是非常有用的(总体等人,1975; Renis等人,1976; Parr和Parr,2003)。在组织学上,Depo-Provera治疗的小鼠的阴道由覆盖两到三层增殖细胞的单层粘液分泌柱状上皮细胞排列。尽管这在形态上与人体阴道不同,但是它非常类似于宫颈上皮,被认为是妇女HSV-2感染的主要部位(Parr等人,1994; Kaushic et al。,2011)。在本文提出的方案中,在用HSV-2进行阴道内接种之前,用Depo-Provera预处理小鼠。该病毒在粘膜上皮中复制,其中它扩散到包含脊髓,脑干,大脑和小脑的CNS中并在其中复制。可以使用ELISA或使用qPCR在阴道组织中检测阴道洗液中的细胞因子反应。此外,可以通过流式细胞术测定白细胞向阴道的募集。该模型适用于对HSV-2感染的先天性和适应性免疫力的研究。
【背景】已经在各种动物模型中研究了具有HSV-2的阴道感染,例如在周边部位具有病毒复制的兔子,仓鼠,豚鼠,小鼠和猴子,并将病毒逆行转运到神经元(Nahmias et al。 ,1971;总体等人,1975; Renis,1977; Stanberry等人,1982; Roizman等人, 2013)。关于感染易感性,潜伏期,HSV-2的自发再激活和动物的可用性,特别是关于敲除动物的可及性的不同动物模型,有几个优点和缺点,这在免疫研究中非常有用对感染的反应。生殖道中的阴道上皮在月经周期期间经历显着的激素变化,并且HSV-2的易感性和诱导的免疫应答的性质受性激素的调节和影响(Kaushic等人, ,2011)。当孕酮水平最高时,小鼠在怀孕期间和小鼠发情周期的发情期间更容易受到阴道HSV-2感染(总体而言,1975年; Baker和Plotkin,1978; Gallichan和Rosenthal,1996)。 Depo-Provera(一种持久的商业黄体酮)预处理小鼠诱发妊娠期并增加阴道HSV-2感染的易感性(100%)(Parr等人,1994; Kaushic et al。,2003)。
 在小鼠阴道内(i.vag。)HSV-2感染进展期间,病毒最初感染包含上皮层全层的贴片中的阴道上皮细胞,下面的基质通常没有感染。感染的上皮细胞被排出到阴道腔(顶端)并感染上皮的其余部分。病毒可以在上皮层内水平扩散到表皮和毛囊,导致头发的损失和皮肤损伤的发展(Parr和Parr,2003; Zhao等人,2003)。阴道HSV-2感染和所产生的病毒复制似乎限于阴道上皮,没有通过病毒血症传播,因为病毒通常不能从生殖器HSV感染的系统器官,血液或淋巴结中分离出来1975年; Renis等人,1976; Podlech等人,1996; Zhao等人。 ,2003)。 HSV-2通过支配感染部位的感觉神经元到达背根神经节(DRG),从那里病毒可以进一步扩散到脊髓,脑干和最后大脑的腰部(Renis等人1976年; Georgsson等人,1987; Podlech等人,1996; Parr和Parr,2003)。 HSV-2也可以通过膀胱和直肠的副神经节(主要自主神经节)扩散到副交感神经元,这可能导致尿液和粪便的滞留(Parr和Parr,2003)。

  6. 检测阴道清洗中的细胞因子
    注意:为了确定阴道洗液中细胞因子的量,我们使用ELISA和Luminex技术,并检测IFN-α/β,我们使用了基于L929细胞的生物测定法。细胞因子CXCL10,CXCL9,CCL5(Rantes),IL-6,IFN-λ和IFN-γ可以通过任何供应商的ELISA试剂盒轻松检测。 IFN-α/β生物活性可以通过在96孔板中使用基于L929细胞的生物测定来测量。
    1. 在阴道样品中使用HSV-2之前,必须通过紫外线治疗6小时将其在冰上灭活。
    2. 在平底96孔板中的每个孔中加入50μlDMEM 5%FCS。每个板可以容纳8个不同的样品/对照(A2-H2),因为样品在板上稀释。第1列(A1-H1)作为细胞对照,列12(A12-H12)作为病毒对照。
    3. 向行2(A2-H2)中的每个孔中加入50μl阴道洗涤液或鼠IFN-α/β。使用8臂多面体连续两次稀释至第11排(A11-H11)。
    4. 在每个孔中加入补充有5%FCS的DMEM中的L929细胞(2×10 4个细胞/100μl中的孔),并将板在37℃下孵育过夜。 L929细胞在补充有200IU / ml青霉素,200μg/ ml链霉素和5%FCS的DMEM中生长。
    5. 第二天将50μl水泡性口炎病毒(VSV / V10)(1.6×10 4 /μl)/ PFU / ml加入每个孔,并将板再孵育2-3天。
    6. 如果在测试样品中存在IFN-α/β,IFN-α/β将保护细胞免受VSV的细胞毒作用,如在明场显微镜中观察到的。介导50%保护免受病毒诱导的细胞死亡的稀释液定义为1U IFN-α/β/ ml。生物测定具有较低的检测限,为6U / ml
  7. 来自组织的RNA提取和定量实时PCR
    1. 将离心机用于Eppendorf管的转子在2-3°C。
