The means by which non-enveloped viruses penetrate cellular membranes during cell entry remain poorly defined. Recent findings indicate several members of this group share a common mechanism of membrane penetration in which the virus particle undergoes programmed conformational changes, leading to capsid disassembly and release of small membrane-interacting peptides. A complete understanding of host cell entry by this minimal system will help elucidate the mechanisms of non-enveloped virus membrane penetration in general

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book contains detailed, up-to-date descriptions of cellular entry mechanisms of non-enveloped viruses, such as ssRNA viruses (nodavirus, picornavirus, calicivirus), dsRNA viruses (orthoreovirus, rotavirus), ssDNA viruses (parvovirus) and dsDNA viruses (polyomavirus, adenovirus). ... The book is strongly recommended to established virologists, molecular and structural biologists, and young scientists working in these areas." (Ulrich Desselberger, Microbiology Today, May, 2011)
