Inhibition of reovirus type 3 binding to host cells by sialylated glycoproteins is mediated through the viral attachment protein.

Abstract

The interaction of mammalian reoviruses with sialylated glycoproteins was studied and found to be highly serotype specific in that attachment of type 3 Dearing reovirus to murine L cell receptors could be strongly inhibited by bovine submaxillary mucin (BSM), fetuin, and alpha 1 acid glycoprotein, albeit at different efficiencies, whereas attachment of type… (More)
