Virus Entry, Volume 105, the latest release in the Advances in Virus Research series, highlights new advances in the field. The initial interactions of a virus with its host cell mediate virus entry, a critical first step in the virus lifecycle. Volume 105 of Advances in Virus Research draws on the expertise of an outstanding group of experts in the entry field to provide an exciting summary of the latest work in the field of animal and plant virus entry. The volume presents work on virus receptors, virus membrane fusion proteins, non-enveloped virus entry, insect-mediated entry into plant cells, pathways of movement between plant cellsand novel methods to study virus fusion proteins and entry pathways. The juxtaposition of a range of different entry and transmission pathways makes this volume an important reference for established researchers in the virus entry field, and provides an introduction to the key questions and mechanisms for new researchers and students of virology.



  • An international team of leading scientists highlights the important advances in our understanding of the entry pathways of animal and plant viruses.
  • New methods to study virus fusion proteins and entry pathways are summarized.?
  • Provides thought-provoking comparisons of common features and unique aspects of virus entry pathways.
