Exploring picornavirus receptors and uncoating mechanisms

Promotor: Prof.dr. F.J.M. (Frank) van Kuppeveld
Date: 26 June 2018
Time: 10.30 h

In this thesis, we identified receptor molecules for the emerging picornaviruses enterovirus D68 and coxsackievirus A24 variant. In addition, we structurally investigated the mechanism by which these receptors induce release of the RNA genome from the virus.
