New paper, led by the David Bhella lab (CVR, UoGlasgow), studies the structure of vesivirus 2117, a pathogen initially discovered following contamination of industial bioreactors, showing similarities to canine and mink vesiviruses, and distantly related to human norovirus, a fellow member of the Caliciviridae family. The study highlights differences between the 2117 and FCV structures suggesting alternate attachment and entry routes employed by these viruses. This paper, now published in the Journal of Virology is available here, and was previously available as a preprint here.
