Abstract: Viral receptors serve both to target viruses to specific cell types and to actively promote the entry of bound virus into cells. Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) can form complexes in vitro with a truncated soluble form of the HRV cell surface receptor, ICAM-1. These complexes appear to be stoichiometric, with approximately 60 ICAM molecules bound per virion or 1 ICAM-1 molecule per icosahedral face of the capsid. The complex can have two fates, either dissociating to yield free virus and free ICAM-1 or uncoating to …
