Early Interactions of Virus and Host Cell
Molecular biologists have concentrated their efforts in studies of the composition and structure of polioviruses and on the intracellular steps in viral replication. Compared to these topics only a moderate number of publications in the last 25 years have appeared dealing with the early events of virus host cell interaction. Discussing these events we will have to refer repeatedly to observations made with other picornaviruses. It is important to keep in mind that there is probably no other phase in viral replication in which members of the picornavirus groups differ so markedly. Terms pertaining to the early interactions of poliovirus and its host cell are explained in Table 39.
