The Fiber Disease

... by the secondary contact, which involves the arginine-glycine- aspartic acid (RGD) sequence found in the Ad penton base protein and the cellular integrins v 3 and v 5 (45, 46). This interaction triggers the internalization of the virion within a clathrin-coated endosome (44). Acidification of ...
