Expression Analysis Highlights AXL as a Candidate Zika Virus Entry Receptor in Neural Stem Cells

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell The recent outbreak of Zika virus and the association with fetal abnormalities including microcephaly represents a global health emergency. Kriegstein and colleagues survey the expression of candidate Zika virus entry proteins to suggest that high AXL expression in neural stem cells may render this population selectively vulnerable to viral infection.
