Human metapneumovirus (hMPV) is a prevalent pathogen worldwide and causes various respiratory infections. Although it is a critical pathogen in pediatric patients, it is unclear how it enters host cells. In this study, we focused on hMPV cell entry using two kinds of cell lines (Vero E6 and LLC-MK2), which are most commonly used for isolating and propagating for hMPV, and we used fluorescent dyes to label the virus particles and monitored how they enter the host cell in real time. We found that… CONTINUE READING
