The posttranscriptional regulator (p27x-III) of human T cell leukemia virus type I (HTLV-I) is located predominantly in the cell nucleolus. A highly basic amino-terminal sequence (NH2-Met-Pro-Lys-Thr-Arg-Arg-Arg-Pro-Arg-Arg-Ser-Gln-Arg-Lys-Arg-Pro-Pro -Thr- Pro) in this protein, when fused to the amino termini of beta-galactosidase and p40x of HTLV-I, acts(More)
Retroviruses have evolved mechanisms for transporting their intron-containing RNAs (including genomic and messenger RNAs, which encode virion components) from the nucleus to the cytoplasm of the infected cell. Human retroviruses, such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and human T cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1), encode the regulatory proteins Rev(More)
We isolated mutants whose vaccinia hemagglutinin (HA) accumulates on nuclear envelopes and the rough endoplasmic reticulum. Mutant HA must be blocked at a pre-Golgi step because it has high-mannose-type carbohydrates but no fucose. Neither N- nor O-glycosidically linked carbohydrates are involved in the transport defect of the mutant HA, because(More)
We have mapped and determined the nucleotide sequence of the cowpox virus (CPV) gene coding for the protein of A-type inclusion bodies (ATI). The ATI gene was mapped to the central part of the largest HindIII restriction fragment of the CPV genome. Vaccinia virus (VV) also contained a similar sequence at the equivalent position in its genome, which even(More)
Since some murine cells expressing human CD4 fail to internalize HIV-1, another block was thought to be located at the level of viral entry in addition to CD4. Recently, CXCR4 was shown to function as a coreceptor for T cell line-tropic HIV-1 entry. Here we demonstrated that cells expressing murine CXCR4 and human CD4 fused with cells expressing the env(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) regulatory protein, Rev, mediates the nuclear export of unspliced and singly spliced viral mRNAs by bridging viral RNA and export receptor human CRM1 (hCRM1). Ribonucleoprotein complex formation, including the oligomerization of Rev proteins on viral RNA, must occur to allow export. We show here that Rev-Rev(More)
