CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that HBV hepatotropism is mediated by the highly selective expression of a yet unknown receptor* on differentiated hepatocytes, while species specificity of the HBV infection requires selective downstream events, e.g., the presence of host dependency or the absence of host restriction factors. The criteria defined here will allow narrowing down reasonable receptor candidates and provide a binding assay for HBV-receptor expression screens in hepatic cells.
