The multidimensional nature of antiviral innate immunity

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Viruses possess elaborate defensive mechanisms to evade host innate immune responses. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Stavrou et al. (2015) reveal how the murine leukemia virus uses a sugar-protein shield to protect from inevitable destruction by cellular innate immune factors including the APOBEC3 DNA mutating enzyme.
