Synchronised infection identifies early rate‐limiting steps in the hepatitis B virus life cycle
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is an enveloped DNA virus that contains a partially double‐stranded relaxed circular (rc) DNA. Upon infection, rcDNA is delivered to the nucleus where it is repaired to covalently closed circular (ccc) DNA that serves as the transcription template for all viral RNAs. Our understanding of HBV particle entry dynamics and host pathways regulating intracellular virus trafficking and cccDNA formation is limited. The discovery of sodium taurocholate co‐transporting peptide (...Expand abstract
