H protein from CDV reference strain, based on MeV crystal structure. Surface representation of the CDV H structure accomplished through homology modelling based on MeV H (PDB: 2RKC), using the software PyMOL, Molecular Graphics System, Version 2.0 Schrödinger, LLC. a In red, residues that potentially interact with mononuclear cell receptors (SLAM); b In blue, positions of CDV H protein that interact with the epithelial cell receptor (nectin-4). The interaction positions of CDV H protein are presented based on the interaction sites of the MeV H protein
