Silverman, Jessica.

Abstract: Herpesviruses are a diverse family of enveloped double-stranded DNA viruses that infect a wide range of animal hosts, including humans. These viruses enter cells by fusion of the viral envelope with a host cell membrane using conserved fusion glycoprotein B (gB) and its heterodimeric activator gH/gL plus additional nonconserved proteins. This complexity sets herpesviruses apart from most... read more
