In macrophages, HIV-1 has been shown to bud into intracellular structures that contain the late endosome marker CD63. We show that these organelles are not endosomes, but an internally sequestered plasma membrane domain. Using immunofluorescence microscopy and immunoelectron microscopy, we find that HIV-1 buds into a compartment that contains the(More)
Plants respond to pathogen attack by induction of various defence responses, including the biosynthesis of protective secondary metabolites. In Catharanthus roseus, the elicitor-induced expression of the terpenoid indole alkaloid biosynthetic gene Strictosidine synthase (Str) is mediated via the plant stress hormone jasmonate. In the promoters of several(More)
During the assembly of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) particles, the tetraspanin CD63 can be incorporated into the viral membrane. Indeed, cell surface tetraspanin microdomains that include CD63 have been proposed as sites for virus release. In addition, antibodies against CD63 can inhibit HIV infection of macrophages. In this cell type, HIV(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is an enveloped retrovirus that undergoes assembly at specific sites in infected cells. In macrophages, at least, this assembly occurs primarily on a subset of endocytic organelles that contain some of the markers found in late endosomes or multivesicular bodies (MVBs), in particular CD63. The budding of virus(More)
