The susceptibility of cells to viral infection is often determined during the early stages of interaction.1 This is particularly evident in the mammalian viruses, where infection and virus disease are largely determined by the ability of viruses to bind to the cells of a particular species. Even within a given species, the expression of different genes in different cell types or within the same cell type at different stages of development can result in the formation of different sets of specific virus receptors. The identification of virus receptors and the study of their interactions with ligands are therefore of critical importance in understanding viral tropism and subsequent disease patterns.2,3
