Résumé

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is known to induce autophagosome accumulation as observed by the typical punctate cytoplasmic distribution of LC3B-II in infected cells. Previously, we showed that viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (NS5B) interacts with ATG5, a major component of the autophagy elongation complex that is involved in the formation of double-membrane vesicles (DMV), and demonstrated that the autophagy elongation complex (ATG5-12/16L1) but not LC3B is required for proper membranous web formation. In this study, the colocalization and in situ interaction of all HCV replicase components with the constituent of the autophagy elongation complex and LC3B were analyzed. The results clearly show the recruitment of the elongation complex to the site of viral replication. Using in situ proximity ligation assay, we show that ATG5, but not ATG16L1, interacts with several HCV replicase components suggesting that the recruitment is directed via the ATG5-12 conjugate. Interestingly, no E3-like conjugation activity of ATG5-12/16L1 can be detected at the at HCV replication site since LC3B-II is not found along with the elongation complex at the site of viral replication. In agreement with this result, no sign of in situ interaction of LC3B with the replicase components is observed. Finally, using dominant negative forms of ATG proteins, we demonstrate that ATG5-12 conjugate, but not LC3-II formation, is critical for viral replication. Altogether, these findings suggest that although HCV needs the elongation complex for its replication, it has developed a mechanism to avoid canonical LC3-II accumulation at viral replication site.
