A model has been built of the amino‐terminal domain of the intercellular adhesion molecule‐1 (ICAM‐1), the receptor for most human rhinovirus serotypes. The model was based on sequence and presumed structural homology to immunoglobulin constant domains. It fits well into the putative receptors attachment site, the canyon, on the human rhinovirus‐14 (HRV14) surface in a manner consistent with most of the mutational data for ICMA‐1 (Staunton, D. E., Dustin, M. L., Erickson, H. P., Springer, T. A. Cell, in press, 1989) and HRV14 (Colonno, R. J., Condra, J. H., Mizutani, S., Callahan, P. L., Davies, M. E., Murcko, M. A. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 85: 5449‐5453, 1988).
