Structural basis for variation in adenovirus affinity for the cellular coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor.

The majority of adenovirus serotypes can bind to the coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor (CAR) on human cells despite only limited conservation of the amino acid residues that comprise the receptor-binding sites of these viruses. Using a fluorescence anisotropy-based assay, we determined that the recombinant knob domain of the fiber protein from… CONTINUE READING
