The binding of monosaccharides and short peptides to lymphocyte receptors (human CD69 and rat NKR-P1A) was first reported in 1994 and then in a number of subsequent publications. Based on this observation, numerous potentially high-affinity saccharide ligands have been synthesized over the last two decades in order to utilize their potential in antitumor(More)
Budding is the final step of the late phase of retroviral life cycle. It begins with the interaction of Gag precursor with plasma membrane (PM) through its N-terminal domain, the matrix protein (MA). However, single genera of Retroviridae family differ in the way how they interact with PM. While in case of Lentiviruses (e.g., human immunodeficiency virus)(More)
Formation of a mature core is a crucial event for infectivity of retroviruses such as Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV). The process is triggered by proteolytic cleavage of the polyprotein precursor Gag, which releases matrix, capsid (CA), and nucleocapsid proteins. Once released, CA assembles to form a mature core - a hexameric lattice protein shell that(More)
We present the preparation of the xenotropic murine leukaemia virus-related virus matrix protein (XMRV-MA) and its structure determined by NMR spectroscopy. The DNA fragment encoding XMRV-MA was obtained from prostate tumour cell cDNA (Rv1 cell line) by PCR and inserted into a pET-22b plasmid. Non-myristoylated, uniformly 13C-and 15N-labeled XMRV-MA, fused(More)
