Lentiviral Vector Systems for Gene Transfer (Medical by Gary L. Buchschacher Jr.

By Gary L. Buchschacher Jr.

The human immunodeficiency viruses (HIVs), particularly HIV-1, are the causative agent accountable for the present around the world epidemic of received immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). an incredible attempt has therefore been underway during the last 20 years to appreciate and keep an eye on this pathogen. in this time, an immense wisdom base has gathered concerning the function of viral components within the HIV-1 lifestyles cycle, and the interplay of HIV-1 with the host telephone is changing into more and more understood. definite positive factors of HIV, for instance its skill to contaminate non-dividing cells, are being exploited within the improvement of novel gene treatment automobiles. This quantity offers an summary of the present information about the HIV replication cycle and should function an advent to next chapters that tackle particular features of lentiviral-based gene treatment.

Sample text

It is currently unclear to what extent RNA dimerization is required for efficient encapsidation. The specific encapsidation of retroviral RNAs into virus particles is mediated by interactions between the packaging signal and the NC domain of Gag. Nearly all retroviral NC proteins contain one or two zinc finger motifs, each of which coordinates a zinc ion. HIV-1 NC contains two zinc-finger motifs (Fig. 7) of the “CCHC” type (Cys-X2-Cys-X4-His-X4-Cys; where X denotes a variable amino acid). The zinc fingers of HIV-1 NC are flanked by highly basic sequences.
