Rotavirus entry into a cell is a complex multistep process in which different domains of the rotavirus surface proteins interact with different cell surface molecules, which act as attachment and entry receptors. These recently described molecules include several integrins and a heat shock protein, which have been found to be associated with cell membrane lipid microdomains. The requirement during viral entry for several cell molecules, which might be required to be present and organized in a… CONTINUE READING
