    ..These results strongly support the hypothesis that although alleles of mCEACAM1 are the principal determinants of mouse susceptibility to MHV-A59, other as-yet-unidentified murine genes may also play a role in susceptibility to MHV. ..

    The mouse pregnancy-specific glycoprotein 16 (PSG16) has been reported to be an alternative receptor for mouse hepatitis virus (MHV), some strains of which cause encephalitis in mice lacking the canonical receptor CEACAM1a...
