The envelope glycoprotein, gp160, of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) shares approximately 25% sequence identity with gp160 from the human immunodeficiency virus, type I, indicating a close structural similarity. As a result of binding to cell surface CD4 and co-receptor (e.g. CCR5 and CXCR4), both SIV and human immunodeficiency virus gp160 mediate viral(More)
The pluripotency of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) is important to investigations of early development and to cell replacement therapy, but the mechanism behind pluripotency is incompletely understood. Zinc has been shown to play a key role in differentiation of non-pluripotent cell types, but here its role in hESCs is directly examined. By mapping the(More)
