Evaluation of binding affinity betwen EPS from human enteric bacteria and human norovirus particle
In order to prevent infectious gastroenteritis caused by norovirus, it is crucial to elucidate the life cycle of norovirus in human society including water environments, and then to shut the route of infection. However, norovirus transmission routes in water environments have been largely unknwon. In this research, I payed an attention to extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) from human enteric bacteria, and the binding affinity bewteen bacterial EPS and norovirus particles is being evaluated quantitatively for the sake of discussing the influence of ubiquitous enteric bacteria on the ecology of human noroviruses.
