Early steps in reovirus replication

Conformational change in a reovirus surface protein modulate the virus’s attachment to host cells, Vanderbilt researchers have found.

Keep your coat on, virus!

A compound acting on serotonin receptors delays a critical step during reovirus cell entry, reducing viral infectivity.

Neural receptor for reovirus

A newly identified receptor allows mammalian reovirus to infect neurons, shedding light on factors important for viral encephalitis.

Breast milk blocks virus binding

Components of human breast milk help ward off viral infection, a new study shows.

Protein’s length, flexibility key to infection

The structural architecture of the reovirus attachment protein is required for efficient reovirus infection of host cells.
