New Study Published
Links differences in the infectivity and tropsim between strains of HCMV to the levels of specific glycoprotein complexes in their envleopes. Because these glycoprotein complexes are prime targets of the immune system, and of vaccine stratagies these studies are important as they help address the phenotypic diversity of HCMV.
