55 Further investigations are required to elucidate the physiological roles of SR and other attachment factors in natural and therapeutic infections of model organisms and humans. 132 They are located on the basolateral side of polarized epithelia but can be relocated apically in the context of infection. Integrins are in a dynamic equilibrium between active ligand-bound and inactive ligand-free states. 134 Integrins occur as 24 α/β heterodimers of 18 α and 8 β subunits. 8 Extracellular Factors Influencing Viral Tropism Body fluids contain factors that bind to AdVs, confer alternative viral tropism, and influence the outcome of both natural infection and systemic gene therapy.
8 Extracellular Factors Influencing Viral Tropism Body fluids contain factors that bind to AdVs, confer alternative viral tropism, and influence the outcome of both natural infection and systemic gene therapy. For example, dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) in lung surfactant or lactoferrin (Lf) in secretory fluids apparently enhance infection of polarized cells regardless of CAR availability. 145 For example, FX shields circulating viruses from immunoglobulin (Ig) M and complement-mediated neutralization and influences virus liver tropism.
