The Minor Receptor Group of Human Rhinovirus (HRV) Includes HRV23 and HRV25, but the Presence of a Lysine in the VP1 HI Loop Is Not Sufficient for Receptor Binding
ABSTRACT Like all 10 minor receptor group human rhinoviruses (HRVs), HRV23 and HRV25, previously classified as major group viruses, are neutralized by maltose binding protein (MBP)-V33333 (a solubleExpand
