Hepatitis C virus entry.

Abstract : Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a hepatotropic virus and a major cause of chronic hepatitis and liver disease worldwide. Initial interactions between HCV virions and hepatocytes are required for productive viral infection and initiation of the viral life cycle. Furthermore, HCV entry contributes to the tissue tropism and species specificity of this virus. The elucidation of these interactions is critical, not only to understand the pathogenesis of HCV infection, but also to design efficient antiviral strategies and vaccines. This review summarizes our current knowledge of the host factors required for the HCV-host interactions during HCV binding and entry, our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying HCV entry into target cells, and the relevance of HCV entry for the pathogenesis of liver disease, antiviral therapy, and vaccine development.
