Complete Replication of Hepatitis C Virus in Cell Culture
Many aspects of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) life cycle have not been reproduced in cell culture, which has slowed research progress on this important human pathogen. Here, we describe a full-lengthExpand

Claudin-1 is a hepatitis C virus co-receptor required for a late step in entry
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a leading cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer worldwide. A better understanding of the viral life cycle, including the mechanisms of entry into host cells, is needed toExpand

Hepatitis C virus glycoproteins mediate pH-dependent cell entry of pseudotyped retroviral particles
HIV pseudotypes bearing native hepatitis C virus (HCV) glycoproteins (strain H and Con1) are infectious for the human hepatoma cell lines Huh-7 and PLC/PR5. Infectivity depends on coexpression ofExpand

Highly Permissive Cell Lines for Subgenomic and Genomic Hepatitis C Virus RNA Replication
ABSTRACT Hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication appears to be restricted to the human hepatoma cell line Huh-7, indicating that a favorable cellular environment exists within these cells. AlthoughExpand

Shorter survival in advanced human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection is more closely associated with T lymphocyte activation than with plasma virus burden or virus chemokine coreceptor usage.
To define predictors of survival time in late human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) disease, long- and short-duration survivors were studied after their CD4+ T cells fell to </=50/mm3. ImmuneExpand

Broadly neutralizing antibodies protect against hepatitis C virus quasispecies challenge
A major problem in hepatitis C virus (HCV) immunotherapy or vaccine design is the extreme variability of the virus. We identified human monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that neutralize geneticallyExpand

Characterization of Hepatitis C Virus E2 Glycoprotein Interaction with a Putative Cellular Receptor, CD81
ABSTRACT A truncated soluble form of the hepatitis C virus E2 glycoprotein, E2661, binds specifically to the surface of cells expressing human CD81 (hCD81) but not other members of the tetraspaninExpand

EGFR and EphA2 are host factors for hepatitis C virus entry and possible targets for antiviral therapy
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major cause of liver disease, but therapeutic options are limited and there are no prevention strategies. Viral entry is the first step of infection and requires theExpand

CD81 Is Required for Hepatitis C Virus Glycoprotein-Mediated Viral Infection
ABSTRACT CD81 has been described as a putative receptor for hepatitis C virus (HCV); however, its role in HCV cell entry has not been characterized due to the lack of an efficient cell cultureExpand

Persistent Hepatitis C Virus Infection In Vitro: Coevolution of Virus andHost
ABSTRACT The virological and cellular consequences of persistent hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection have been elusive due to the absence of the requisite experimental systems. Here, we report theExpand
