Abstract:

Human coronaviruses HeV are the cause of 25 percent of common colds. Difficulty in isolation of clinical pathogens has limited the characterization of these viruses and their interaction with host cells. The purpose of this research project was to characterize and identity the cellular receptors for HCV-229E.
