Abstract

Humans are the sole natural host of measles virus. The identification of CD46 as a virus receptor and of the involvement of moesin sheds some light on the molecular events occurring during virus entry into the cell. Knowledge of the key role of CD46 paves the way to creating transgenic mice sensitive to measles virus infection.
