J Virol manuscript!


In collaboration with D. Elleder group (Institute of Molecular Genetics, Prague) we have discovered that the avian retroviral receptor Tva mediates the physiological uptake of transcobalamin bound vitamin B12 (TC-Cbl). These findings open an interesting exploratory avenues whether a virus infection can be inhibited by TC-Cbl complexes in vivo. Congratulation to all co-authors!
