Specific spatial arrangements of proteins and lipids are central to the coordination of many biological processes. Tetraspanins have been proposed to laterally organize cellular membranes via specific associations with each other and with distinct integrins. Here, we reveal the presence of tetraspanin-enriched microdomains (TEMs) containing the tetraspanins(More)
HIV-1 buds from the surface of activated T lymphocytes. In macrophages, however, newly formed HIV-1 particles amass in the lumen of an intracellular compartment. Here, we demonstrate by live-cell imaging techniques, by immunocytochemistry and by immuno-electron microscopy that HIV-1 structural proteins, particularly the internal structural protein Gag,(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) Gag is the primary structural protein of the virus and is sufficient for particle formation. We utilized the recently developed biarsenical-labeling method to dynamically observe HIV-1 Gag within live cells by adding a tetracysteine tag (C-C-P-G-C-C) to the C terminus of Gag in both Pr55Gag expression and(More)
