Previous studies have assigned 88 human rhinovirus (HRV) serotypes to major and minor receptor groups. Extension of these studies to include the remaining 14 unassigned serotypes indicated that 13 serotypes belong to the major group since their infection of HeLa cells is completely blocked by a monoclonal antibody that recognizes the major group receptor.(More)
Human ICAM-1 is the cellular receptor for the major group of human rhinoviruses (HRVs). Previous studies have suggested that the N-terminal domain of ICAM-1 is critical for binding of the major group rhinoviruses. To further define the residues within domain 1 that are involved in virus binding, we constructed an extensive series of ICAM-1 cDNAs containing(More)
The intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) receptor was expressed in primary chicken embryo cells using a retroviral vector and shown to specifically bind major group human rhinoviruses (HRVs). A truncated, membrane-bound ICAM-1 protein containing N-terminal domains 1, 2, and 3 retained the ability to bind virus whereas proteins containing domains 1 and(More)
