Viral membrane fusion
Viral membrane fusion is the process by which enveloped viruses enter host cells. It involves the merging (fusion) of the virus membrane with the host cell membrane or at an intracellular location following virus uptake by endocytosis. Fusion is mediated by transmembrane proteins that are anchored on the virus surface.
