Many rhinovirus serotypes share the same cellular receptor.


Twenty-four human rhinovirus serotypes were grown and purified by centrifugation in metrizamide density gradients. These preparations had a lower buoyant density (1.24 g/cm3) and higher specific infectivities (1:24 to 1:240) than did rhinoviruses described previously (E. J. Stott and R. J. Killington, Annu. Rev. Microbiol. 26:503-524, 1972). Binding… (More)
