    Maino Tahara
    Department of Virology 3, National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Tokyo, Japan
    J Virol 87:3583-6. 2013
    ..Since interactions with both the signaling lymphocyte activation molecule (SLAM) and nectin4 are critical for MV pathogenesis, its escape, which results from loss of receptor-binding activity, should not occur in nature...
  2. pmc Functional and structural characterization of neutralizing epitopes of measles virus hemagglutinin protein
    Maino Tahara
    Department of Virology 3, National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Tokyo, Japan
    J Virol 87:666-75. 2013
    ..The epitope has been masked by an N-linked sugar modification in some genotype MV strains. These data would contribute to our understanding of the antigenicity of MV and support the global elimination program of measles...

    Uirusu 61:249-55. 2011
    ..Understanding the molecular mechanisms of MV to infect both epithelial and immune cells provides a deep insight into measles pathogenesis...

    Kouji Sakai
    Department of Virology 3, National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Tokyo, Japan
    J Virol 88:5608-16. 2014
    ..Our results demonstrate that recently emerged H7N9 as well as seasonal IAVs mainly use the specific protease TMPRSS2 for HA cleavage in vivo and, thus, that TMPRSS2 expression is essential for IAV replication in vivo...
  5. pmc Canine distemper virus associated with a lethal outbreak in monkeys can readily adapt to use human receptors
    Kouji Sakai
    Department of Virology 3, National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Tokyo, Japan
    J Virol 87:7170-5. 2013
    ..Since CYN07-dV had an intrinsic ability to use human nectin-4, the adapted virus became able to use both human immune and epithelial cell receptors, as well as monkey and canine ones, suggesting that CDV can potentially infect humans...
