Abstract

Interaction of viral protein gp42 with its receptor is the trigger for the entry of Epstein-Barr virus into B cells. The structure of gp42 reported by Kirschner etal. (2009) in this issue of Structure suggests a likely triggering mechanism substantially different from that of a related herpesvirus.
