Recipe Details

HIV Recipe and Ingredient Parameters and Resources:

Note: Many proteins will be found in both compartments including excess copies of the nuclear Capsid protein as well as RT and IN bound to the RNA.

Information on genes and gene products from

gag– called "assemblin", the gag precursor p55 myristoylated protein is processed into p17 (MAtrix), p7 (NucleoCapsid), and p6 protein by viral protease.

pol– encodes the viral enzymes protease, reverse transcriptase, and integrate produces as a gag-pol precursor polyprotein which is then processed by the viral protease
