Most evidence points toward there being a shared binding site in complement receptor type 2 (CR2, CD21) for the complement ligand C3dg and the EBV surface envelope glycoprotein gp350/220. Indeed, synthetic peptide studies have suggested that the CR2-binding sites in human C3dg and EBV gp350/220 share a similar sequence motif. The proposed CR2-binding sequence in C3dg is EDPGKQLYNVEA (residues 1199-1210 of mature C3), whereas that in EBV gp350/220 is EDPGFFNVEI (residues identical to C3dg are… CONTINUE READING
