range expansion of bombali virus in mops condylurus bats, kenya, 2019.previously identified only in sierra leone, guinea, and southeastern kenya, bombali virus-infected mops condylurus bats were recently found »750 km away in western kenya. this finding supports the role of m. condylurus bats as hosts and the potential for bombali virus circulation across the bats' range in sub-saharan africa.202033219788
dendritic cells generated from mops condylurus, a likely filovirus reservoir host, are susceptible to and activated by zaire ebolavirus infection.ebola virus infection of human dendritic cells (dcs) induces atypical adaptive immune responses and thereby exacerbates ebola virus disease (evd). human dcs, infected with ebola virus aberrantly express low levels of the dc activation markers cd80, cd86, and mhc class ii. the t cell responses ensuing are commonly anergic rather than protective against evd. we hypothesize that dcs derived from potential reservoir hosts such as bats, which do not develop disease signs in response to ebola virus in ...201931681302
