immune system
• inflammatory infiltrates are seen in the lungs of mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally at day 3 post infection
• while mice support infection and replication of MERS-15, a mouse adapted MERS-CoV (MERS-0) via serial passage for 15 rounds through the lungs of heterozygous Dpp4em1Rba mice, heterozygotes show 100% survival with MERS-15 infection compared to homozygotes which show high mortality
• mice support efficient infection and replication of the human Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) strain HCoV-EMC/2012, camel strain Dromedary/Al-Hasa-KFU-HKU13/2013, and recombinant virus derived from a molecular infectious clone (icMERS) in the lungs which is not seen in wild-type controls
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally, a mouse adapted MERS-CoV (MERS-0) via serial passage for 15 rounds through the lungs of heterozygous Dpp4em1Rba mice, show higher levels of MERS-15 replication in the lungs at 3 and 6 days post infection, while MERS-0 is cleared from the lungs by 6 days post infection and no replication is seen in wild-type mice

mortality/aging
• while mice support infection and replication of MERS-15, a mouse adapted MERS-CoV (MERS-0) via serial passage for 15 rounds through the lungs of heterozygous Dpp4em1Rba mice, heterozygotes show 100% survival with MERS-15 infection compared to homozygotes which show high mortality

respiratory system
• severe hemorrhage in the lungs is seen in mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally at days 3 and 6 post infection
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally show intra-alveolar edema
• inflammatory infiltrates are seen in the lungs of mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally at day 3 post infection
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally show hyaline membrane formation at day 6 post infection
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally show increased enhanced pause (Penh), a measure reflecting airway obstruction/restriction due to debris in the airway, and increased midtidal expiratory flow (EF50), representing the flow rate at which 50% of tidal volume is expelled in a single breath, up to day 6 post infection indicating severe respiratory distress
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally show pathology associated with severe acute respiratory distress, including hyaline membrane formation, intra-alveolar edema, perivascular cuffing and severe inflammation at day 6 post infection

cardiovascular system
• severe hemorrhage in the lungs is seen in mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally at days 3 and 6 post infection

growth/size/body
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally show 20-25% weight loss by days 6 post infection compared to mice infected with MERS-0 or wild-type mice injected with MERS-15

homeostasis/metabolism
N
• blood glucose levels are normal
• mice infected with MERS-15 intranasally show intra-alveolar edema
