pmid sentence
32284379 Valinomycin, a potassium ionophore, was among our top targets. […] We found that valinomycin exhibited potent anti-LACV activity in multiple cell types in a dose-dependent manner. […] Valinomycin did not affect particle stability or infectivity, suggesting that it may preclude virus replication by altering cellular potassium ions, a known determinant of LACV entry. […] We extended these results to other ionophores and found that the antiviral activity of valinomycin extended to other viral families including bunyaviruses (Rift Valley fever virus, Keystone virus), enteroviruses (Coxsackievirus, rhinovirus), flavirivuses (Zika), and coronaviruses (HCoV-229E and MERS-CoV). […] In all viral infections, we observed significant reductions in virus titer in valinomycin-treated cells. […] We focused on a potassium ionophore, valinomycin, due to its promising in vitro antiviral activity. […] We demonstrate that valinomycin, as well as a selection of other ionophores, exhibits activity against La Crosse virus as well as several other distantly related bunyaviruses. […] We finally observe that valinomycin has activity against a wide array of human viral pathogens, suggesting that disrupting potassium ion homeostasis with valinomycin may be a potent host pathway to target to quell virus infection.
