The main functions of retroviral glycoproteins are recognition and binding to the cellular virus receptor as well as fusion of viral and cellular lipid membranes to release the viral particle into the cytoplasm of the host cell. Foamy viruses (FVs) are a special group of retroviruses with a very broad host range that use a currently unknown cellular receptor for entry. Nevertheless, many functions of the FV envelope glycoproteins in the viral replication cycle have been characterized in detail… CONTINUE READING
