cis Expression of the F12 Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Nef Allele Transforms the Highly Productive NL4-3 HIV Type 1 to a Replication-Defective Strain: Involvement of both Env gp41 and CD4
ABSTRACT F12 human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) nef is a naturally occurring nef mutant cloned from the provirus of a nonproductive, nondefective, and interfering HIV-1 variant (F12-HIV). WeExpand

T-tropic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 Nef protein enters human monocyte-macrophages and induces resistance to HIV replication: a possible mechanism of HIV T-tropic emergence in AIDS.
Increasing interest has been devoted to the role that monocyte-macrophages play in the pathogenesis of AIDS. The hypothesis of an involvement in AIDS pathogenesis of human/simian immunodeficiencyExpand

gag, vif, and nef Genes Contribute to the Homologous Viral Interference Induced by a Nonproducer Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) Variant: Identification of Novel HIV-1-Inhibiting Viral
ABSTRACT We previously demonstrated that expression of the nonproducer F12-human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) variant induces a block in the replication of superinfecting HIV that does notExpand
