Why is rabies virus called neurotrophic in nature ?
Asked by twisha patel | 4th Nov, 2010, 12:00: AM
Rabies virus is neurotrophic in nature because from the wound of entry, the rabies virus travels quickly along the neural pathways to the central nervous system (CNS). The retrograde axonal transport of the rabies virus to the CNS is the key step of pathogenesis during natural infection.
We hope that clarifies your query.
