a more in-depth look at the reovirus life cycle. This current version highlights each of the 8 proteins that make up the virus as well as its icosahedral symmetry. The virus is activated upon chymotrypsin 'attack' and cleavage of the outer protein layer. The virus then binds to and enters the cell via the JAM-1 receptor and clathrin-mediated endocytosis. video by Gael McGill, Janet Iwasa
