- Unique susceptibility of a human lung carcinoid tumor cell line to infection with BK virusSheila A Haley
Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry, Brown University, Providence, RI 02903, USA Sheila
Virus Res 149:128-32. 2010..Infection does not seem to be solely mediated by the virus' ability to bind to cells, as the virus will also bind to non-carcinoid control cells. Both early and late gene expression are supported by the pulmonary carcinoid cells...
- 5-HT2 receptors facilitate JC polyomavirus entryBenedetta Assetta
Graduate Program in Pathobiology, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA
J Virol 87:13490-8. 2013..Taken together, these data confirm that the carbohydrate LSTc is the attachment receptor for JCPyV and that the type 2 serotonin receptors contribute to JCPyV infection by facilitating entry. ..
- Role of N-linked glycosylation of the 5-HT2A receptor in JC virus infectionMelissa S Maginnis
Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry, Brown University, 70 Ship Street, Providence, RI 02903, USA
J Virol 84:9677-84. 2010..These data affirm the importance of 5-HT(2A)R as a JCV receptor and demonstrate that the sialic acid component of the receptor is not directly linked to 5-HT(2A)R...
