Effect of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor alpha 1 (nAChR╬▒1) peptides on rabies virus infection in neuronal cells

Rabies virus (RABV) is neurotropic and causes acute progressive encephalitis. Herein, we report the interaction of nAChR╬▒1-subunit peptides with RABV and the effect of these peptides on RABV infection in cultured neuronal cells. Peptide sequences derived from torpedo, bovine, human and rats were syn...
