The HIV-1 viral infectivity factor (Vif) is required for productive infection of non-permissive cells, including most natural HIV-1 targets, where it counteracts the antiviral activities of the cellular cytosine deaminases APOBEC-3G (A3G) and A3F. Vif is a multimeric protein and the conserved proline-rich domain (161)PPLP(164) regulating Vif oligomerization(More)
Metabolism of the cortisol (F) and the cortisone (E) was studied by continuous infusion of [14C]-F and [3H]-E in adult conscious male guinea-pigs. Parameters, calculated from the specific activities of F and E, are expressed in mumoles/24 h : production rate of F (PRF) = 8 +/- 1 and E (PRE) = 4.9 +/- 0.7 ; secretion rate of F (QF) = 7.1 +/- 0.9 and E (QE) =(More)
The gene for mouse vas deferens protein (MVDP) is expressed, under androgenic control, exclusively in the epithelial cells of the deferent duct. As a first step in correlating cell-specific and hormonal regulations with the structure of the gene, the complete sequence of the MVDP gene (11 kb) and 0.5 kb of the 5' flanking region have been determined.

This study was undertaken to determine the secretion of aldosterone by male Long-Evans rats acclimated for six weeks to moderate cold (15 C), in comparison with rats maintained at thermo-neutral temperature (28 C). The following determinations were made: corticosteroids in plasma and adrenals, PRA, and hydromineral balance. Cold acclimation highly increased(More)
