Glycyrrhizin (GL) achieved a concentration-dependent inhibition of the replication of hepatitis A virus (HAV) in PLC/PRF/5 cells. GL has been shown to inhibit an early stage of the HAV replication. GL was not virucidal and had no measurable effect on the adsorption of [3H]uridine-labelled virions to cells. GL inhibited HAV penetration of the plasma membrane as measured by the amount of infective virus no longer neutralizable by specific antibody over time.
