1.G.22 The Cytomegalovirus (Human Herpesvirus 5)Glycoprotein gO (gO) Family 

Feng and Jia 2016 described the molecular mechanisms of glycoprotein-induced fusion and entry of herpesviruses. gO or gL in part serves this function in Cytomegalovirus. The heterodimer, glycoprotein H-glycoprotein L, is required for the fusion of viral and plasma membranes leading to virus entry into the host cell. Membrane fusion is mediated by the fusion machinery composed at least of gB and the heterodimer gH/gL
