Glycoproteins are carbohydrate linked protein macromolecules found in the cell surface, which form the principal component of animal cells.
Once the cloned genes are over expressed in systems such as insect or bacterial cell cultures, large-scale production of the glycoprotein can be used to develop a new biobased glue for a variety of purposes," noted the researchers.
In addition to its involvement in viral entry into host cells, cell-to-cell transmission and membrane fusion of infected cells, the gB glycoprotein is also a major target for neutralizing antibodies (15).

Also, much more genetic variability could have been observed by sequencing the gene encoding for the attachment glycoprotein (G gene) as suggested by RSV and limited HMPV sequences (14,15).
Von Willebrand factor (vWf)--induced platelet stimulation requires the coactivation of two different glycoproteins, the GpIb-V-IX complex and GpIIb-IIIa, or integrin [Alpha]IIb[Beta]3, the former being responsible for the initial contact and the latter leading to spreading and irreversible adhesion (13).
