    Abstract : Enteroviruses belong to the Picornaviridae family and are small icosahedral viruses with RNA genomes of positive polarity, containing a single open reading frame. They mostly cause mild or asymptomatic infections, but also a wide array of diseases including: poliomyelitis, encephalitis, gastroenteritis, aseptic meningitis, myocarditis, hand-foot-and-mouth disease, hepatitis and respiratory diseases, ranging from severe infections to the common cold.

  3. 3. Non-enveloped virus infection probed with host cellular molecules : a structural study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Li Xing; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Early steps in virus replication require binding of the virus to its target cell, entry into the cell, and delivery of the viral genome into the cell in order to gain access to the cellular macromolecular synthesis machinery. This infectious process can only be initiated if the virus successfully attaches to a specific receptor on the plasma membrane of the target cell. READ MORE
