Multiple receptor-dependent steps determine the species specificity of HCV-229E infection.

Abstract

Human coronavirus (HCV)-229E causes disease only in humans and grows in human cells and in cells of other species that express recombinant human aminopeptidase N (hAPN), the receptor for HCV-229E. We compared the species specificity of HCV-229E infection with the species specificity of virus binding using immunofluorescence, assay of virus yields… (More)
