24,25 Neither the function nor the location of these cementing proteins is entirely clear, however. In particular, the cryo-EM and the X-ray structures of AdV are not in complete agreement with respect to the location of the cementing proteins. 25 The X-ray structure places the inner cementing proteins VI, VIII, and the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) core protein V near the vertex, and protein IX outside the virion. 26,27 The capsid harbors a single copy of a linear double-stranded viral DNA. The capsid is a metastable structure that progressively uncoats in response to cellular cues.

Integrins are in a dynamic equilibrium between active ligand-bound and inactive ligand-free states. 134 Integrins occur as 24 α/β heterodimers of 18 α and 8 β subunits. 8 Extracellular Factors Influencing Viral Tropism Body fluids contain factors that bind to AdVs, confer alternative viral tropism, and influence the outcome of both natural infection and systemic gene therapy. For example, dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) in lung surfactant or lactoferrin (Lf) in secretory fluids apparently enhance infection of polarized cells regardless of CAR availability.
