Receptor-specificity is a key determinant of viral tropism. In this report, however, we have demonstrated that cell-associated spread of MHV can bypass the requirement for binding to primary receptors and thereby spread to cells that are resistant to MHV infection. Anti-receptor antibody CC1, which blocks infection by MHV virions, failed to prevent cell-associated spread of MHV to receptor-negative BHK cells or receptor-positive DBT cells. Cell-associated MHV may be utilizing an alternative… 

Role of Endocytosis and Low pH in Murine Hepatitis Virus Strain A59 Cell Entry

The results imply that endocytosis plays a major role in MHV-A59 infection and the acidic pH of the endosomal compartment triggers a conformational change of the S protein mediating fusion.

Pathogenesis of Murine Coronavirus Infection

This chapter discusses primarily infections of the central nervous system (CNS) and the liver, which provide animal models for human diseases such as hepatitis and encephalitis, demyelinating diseasessuch as multiple sclerosis, and, most recently, respiratory disease such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

Visualisierung und Charakterisierung der S-Protein vermittelten Fusion von Coronaviren

The results imply that endocytosis plays a major role in MHV-A59 infection and that the acidic pH of the endosomal compartment triggers a conformational change of the S-protein mediating fusion.

Preexisting and de novo humoral immunity to SARS-CoV-2 in humans

Using diverse assays for antibodies recognizing SARS-CoV-2 proteins, preexisting humoral immunity was detected and antibodies targeting the S2 subunit were particularly prevalent in children and adolescents.

Alteration of the pH dependence of coronavirus-induced cell fusion: effect of mutations in the spike glycoprotein

It is demonstrated that the pH dependence of coronavirus fusion is highly variable and that this variability can be determined by as few as three amino acid residues.

Receptor for mouse hepatitis virus is a member of the carcinoembryonic antigen family of glycoproteins.

The MHV receptor is the first member of the CEA family of glycoproteins to be identified as a virus receptor, and resembled members of the human CEAFamily in molecular weight, acidic pI, extensive glycosylation, solubility in perchloric acid, and tissue distribution.

Coronavirus species specificity: murine coronavirus binds to a mouse-specific epitope on its carcinoembryonic antigen-related receptor glycoprotein

Results suggest that MHV-A59 binds to a mouse-specific epitope of MHVR, and they support the hypothesis that the species specificity of MHV -A59 infection may be due to the specificity of the virus-receptor interaction.

Bgp2, a new member of the carcinoembryonic antigen-related gene family, encodes an alternative receptor for mouse hepatitis viruses

A novel murine Bgp gene has been identified that can be coexpressed in inbred mice with the Bgp1 glycoproteins and that can serve as a receptor for MHV strains when expressed in transfected hamster cells.

Molecular cloning and expression of a spike protein of neurovirulent murine coronavirus JHMV variant cl-2.

The cDNA encoding the spike (S) protein of the neurovirulent murine coronavirus JHMV variant cl-2 was isolated and sequenced and it was shown to be electrophoretically and immunologically indistinguishable from the S protein produced in DBT cells infected withCl-2 virus.
