Measles virus (MV) infects endothelial cells of the skin, the brain and other organs during acute or persistent infections. Endothelial cells are supposed to play an important role in virus spread from the blood stream to surrounding tissues. CD46 and CD150 (signalling lymphocytic activation molecule, SLAM) have been described as cellular receptors for certain MV strains. We found that human umbilical vein and brain microvascular endothelial cells (HUVECs and HBMECs) were CD46-positive, but did… CONTINUE READING
