The HIV-1 Vpu protein is expressed from a bi-cistronic message late in the viral life cycle. It functions during viral assembly to maximise infectious virus release by targeting CD4 for proteosomal degradation and counteracting the antiviral protein tetherin (BST2/CD317). Single genome analysis of vpu repertoires throughout infection in 14 individuals(More)

Studies have demonstrated the occurrence of survey satisficing, which can degrade survey quality, particularly in longitudinal studies. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to use a group-based trajectory analysis(More)
