Brief Review

Summary.

Noroviruses (NoVs) and sapoviruses (SaVs) are causative agents of human gastroenteritis. There is increasing evidence that certain human NoV strains bind to histo-blood group antigens (HBGAs). We found that several NoV virus-like particles (VLPs) showed binding activity to HBGAs, while neither SaV genogroup I (GI) VLP nor SaV GV VLP showed such activity.
