Powassan Virus (POWV) is an emerging neurotropic flavivirus transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick. Currently, there is no specific antiviral treatment nor approved vaccine for POWV. During infection, many interferon-independent host proteins and pathways sense and respond to viral infection. Flaviviruses have evolved multiple mechanisms to counteract host antiviral programs, often with individual viral proteins mediating this antagonism. However, it has not been determined if these mechanisms are conserved across diverse flaviviruses.
