In this work we have studied the intracellular localization properties of the Gag and Env proteins of Moloney murine leukemia virus (MLV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons of rat. These neurons form thick bundles of axons, which facilitates protein localization studies by immunofluorescence analyses. When such(More)
The activity of the membrane fusion protein Env of Moloney mouse leukaemia virus is controlled by isomerization of the disulphide that couples its transmembrane (TM) and surface (SU) subunits. We have arrested Env activation at a stage prior to isomerization by alkylating the active thiol in SU and compared the structure of isomerization-arrested Env with(More)
