Rotavirus infection seems to be a multistep process in which the viruses are required to interact with several cell surface molecules to enter the cell. The virus spike protein VP4, which is cleaved by trypsin into two subunits, VP5 and VP8, is involved in some of these interactions. We have previously shown that the neuraminidase-sensitive rotavirus strain(More)
Antibodies are important tools for experimental research and medical applications. Most antibodies are composed of two heavy and two light chains. Both chains contribute to the antigen-binding site which is usually flat or concave. In addition to these conventional antibodies, llamas, other camelids, and sharks also produce antibodies composed only of heavy(More)
In addition to conventional antibodies, cartilaginous fish have evolved a distinctive type of immunoglobulin, designated as IgNAR, which lacks the light polypeptide chains and is composed entirely by heavy chains. IgNAR molecules can be manipulated by molecular engineering to produce the variable domain of a single heavy chain polypeptide (vNARs). These,(More)
