During virus entry, herpes simplex virus (HSV) glycoprotein D (gD) binds to one of several human cellular receptors. One of these, herpesvirus entry mediator A (HveA), is a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) superfamily, and its ectodomain contains four characteristic cysteine-rich pseudorepeat (CRP) elements. We previously showed that gD binds the ectodomain of HveA expressed as a truncated, soluble protein [HveA(200t)]. To localize the gD-binding domain of HveA, we expressed three additional soluble forms of HveA consisting of the first CRP [HveA(76t)], the second CRP [HveA(77-120t)], or the first and second CRPs [HveA(120t)]. Biosensor and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay studies showed that gD bound to HveA(120t) and HveA(200t) with the same affinity. However, gD did not bind to HveA(76t) or HveA(77-120t). Furthermore, HveA(200t) and HveA(120t), but not HveA(76t) or HveA(77-120t), blocked herpes simplex virus (HSV) entry into CHO cells expressing HveA. We also generated six monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against HveA(200t). MAbs CW1, -2, and -4 bound linear epitopes within the second CRP, while CW7 and -8 bound linear epitopes within the third or fourth CRPs. None of these MAbs blocked the binding of gD to HveA. In contrast, MAb CW3 recognized a discontinuous epitope within the first CRP of HveA, blocked the binding of gD to HveA, and exhibited a limited ability to block virus entry into cells expressing HveA, suggesting that the first domain of HveA contains at least a portion of the gD binding site. The inability of gD to bind HveA(76t) suggests that additional amino acid residues of the gD binding site may reside within the second CRP.
