Description
Coronaviruses (CoV) have been responsible for several severe viral outbreaks culminating in the current global pandemic. However, some viruses of this family are widespread and only cause mild conditions, like the common cold. The origin of the significant variation in the severity of the CoV-related diseases is still poorly understood. Recent studies have suggested that the strength of the interaction between the virus and the cell surface during the early stages of virus entry could play an important role. CoVs attachment to the plasma membrane is mediated by the specific interaction between the viral spike glycoprotein (CoV-S) and receptors found on the cell ...
