Platelet-derived growth factor-α receptor is the cellular receptor for human cytomegalovirus gHgLgO trimer

Human cytomegalovirus encodes at least 25 membrane glycoproteins that are found in the viral envelope1. While gB represents the fusion protein, two glycoprotein complexes control the tropism of the virus: the gHgLgO trimer is involved in the infection of fibroblasts, and the gHgLpUL128L pentamer is required for infection of endothelial, epithelial and… CONTINUE READING
