- Incorporation of three endocytosed varicella-zoster virus glycoproteins, gE, gH, and gB, into the virion envelopeLucie Maresova
University of Iowa Hospital 2501 JCP, 200 Hawkins Dr, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
J Virol 79:997-1007. 2005..Furthermore, since a recombinant VZV genome lacking only endocytosis-competent gE cannot replicate, these results supported the conclusion that the endocytosis-envelopment pathway is an essential component of the VZV life cycle...

J Virol 83:228-40. 2009..Blocking gE binding to gI resulted in severe impairment of VZV infection of human skin xenografts in SCIDhu mice in vivo, documenting the importance of cell fusion mediated by this complex for VZV virulence in skin...
- The insulin degrading enzyme binding domain of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) glycoprotein E is important for cell-to-cell spread and VZV infectivity, while a glycoprotein I binding domain is essential for infectionMir A Ali
Medical Virology Section, Laboratory of Clinical Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
Virology 386:270-9. 2009..We conclude that the IDE binding domain is important for efficient cell-to-cell spread and infectivity of cell-free virus...
- Insulin-degrading enzyme binds to the nonglycosylated precursor of varicella-zoster virus gE protein found in the endoplasmic reticulumJ E Carpenter
Children s Hospital, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa 52242, USA
J Virol 84:847-55. 2010..We conclude that IDE protease binds to the 73-kDa gE precursor and that this event occurs in the cytosol but not as a receptor/ligand interaction...
