The structure of echovirus type 12 bound to a two-domain fragment of its cellular attachment protein decay-accelerating factor (CD 55).
Echovirus type 12 (EV12), an Enterovirus of the Picornaviridae family, uses the complement regulator decay-accelerating factor (DAF, CD55) as a cellular receptor. We have calculated a three-dimensional reconstruction of EV12 bound to a fragment of DAF consisting of short consensus repeat domains 3 and 4 from cryo-negative stain electron microscopy data (EMD code 1057). This shows that, as for an earlier reconstruction of the related echovirus type 7 bound to DAF, attachment is not within the ...Expand abstract
