The engagement of a cell-surface receptor by a virus is the first step in a complex process that culminates in the infection of the cell. Human adenoviruses are important pathogens that, depending on serotype, can utilize an impressive number of cellular receptors for attachment. Several structures of adenovirus attachment proteins in complex with their cognate ligands have been determined, enhancing our understanding of the underlying molecular recognition processes. Moreover, two new… CONTINUE READING
