VP4 (Outer capsid protein VP4) (Hemagglutinin) functions as a spike-forming protein that mediates virion attachment to the host epithelial cell receptors and plays a major role in cell penetration, determination of host range restriction and virulence. It is subsequently lost, together with VP7, following virus entry into the host cell. Rotavirus attachment and entry into the host cell probably involves multiple sequential contacts between the outer capsid proteins VP4 and VP7, and the cell receptors.
