Virus entry into host cells is the earliest step in a productive infection process for both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. The mechanism of virus entry of enveloped viruses has been studied quite extensively and two drugs targeted to the entry pathway of HIV-1 have been approved by the US FDA. Many more inhibitors are currently being studied to inhibit HIV-1 entry. However, the entry process of non-enveloped viruses is poorly understood. In this special issue, we hope to capture the recent developments in our understanding of the entry mechanism of both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses and their inhibition.
