Viral attachment and penetration of Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) occurs either via direct HCMV fusion with the cell membrane or via endocytosis. The endocytic mechanism occurs with cell types including endothelial and epithelial cells, where the pentameric viral protein complex, gH:gL:p128:p130:p131A, facilitates entry.
