[Neurotoxicity in mice due to cysteine-rich parts of visna virus and HIV-1 Tat proteins].

Abstract

The trans-activating visna virus and HIV-1 Tat proteins share, at their amino-acid sequence level, a significant 60% analogy on 17 consecutive residues. These homologous sequences are also found in a part of the short neurotoxin sequence from snake venom. Synthetic peptides representative of the two analogous viral sequences are, after… (More)
