Murine VCAM-1 has been identified as a receptor for the D variant of encephalomyocarditis (EMC-D) virus on vascular endothelial cells from the heart. Monoclonal antibodies to VCAM-1 inhibited infection and lysis of endothelial cells with EMC-D virus. CHO cells transfected with the VCAM-1 gene were susceptible to EMC-D virus lysis, while control CHO cells transfected with the ELAM-1 gene were resistant. Similarly, 35S-labeled EMC-D virus bound to CHO-VCAM cells, and binding was inhibited with… CONTINUE READING
