UNLABELLED Rhesus macaque TRIM5α (rhTRIM5α) is a retroviral restriction factor that inhibits HIV-1 infection. Previous studies have revealed that TRIM5α restriction occurs via a two-step process. The first step is restriction factor binding, which is sufficient to inhibit infection. The second step, which is sensitive to proteasome inhibition, prevents the(More)
HIV-1 recruits cellular endosomal sorting complexes required for transport (ESCRTs) to bud virions from the membrane. Disruption of the viral nucleocapsid (NC) domain integrity affects HIV-1 budding. However, the molecular mechanisms of NC's involvement in HIV budding remain unclear. We find that NC mimics the PDZ domains of syntenin, a membrane-binding(More)
