Human Tripartite Motif 5α Domains Responsible for Retrovirus Restriction Activity and Specificity
• Biology
Journal of Virology
• 2005
Replacement of a small segment in the carboxy-terminal B30.2/SPRY domain of huTRIM5α with its rhesus macaque counterpart endows it with the ability to potently inhibit HIV-1 infection, suggesting that homomultimerization of intact hu TRIM5 α monomers is necessary for N-MLV restriction.
Interfering Residues Narrow the Spectrum of MLV Restriction by Human TRIM5α
• Biology
PLoS pathogens
• 2007
The results support a model in which TRIM5α-mediated retroviral restriction results from the direct binding of the antiviral PRYSPRY domain to the viral capsid, and can be prevented by interferences exerted by critical residues on either one of these two partners.
Editing of the human TRIM5 gene to introduce mutations with the potential to inhibit HIV-1
• Biology
PloS one
• 2018
The study demonstrates the feasibility of editing the TRIM5 gene in human cells and identifies the main challenges to be addressed in order to use this approach to confer protection from HIV-1.
Trim-Cyclophilin A Fusion Proteins Can Restrict Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Infection at Two Distinct Phases in the Viral Life Cycle
• Biology
Journal of Virology
• 2006
The Trim5α protein from several primates restricts retroviruses in a capsid (CA)-dependent manner and Quantitative PCR analysis of viral reverse transcriptase products revealed that the different fusion proteins block HIV-1 at two distinct stages of its life cycle, either prior to reverse transcription or just before integration.
Homology-based Identification of Capsid Determinants That Protect HIV1 from Human TRIM5α Restriction*
• Biology
The Journal of Biological Chemistry
• 2010
The results indicate that retroviruses have evolved similar mechanisms to escape TRIM5α restriction via the interference of structurally homologous determinants in the viral capsid.
Novel Escape Mutants Suggest an Extensive TRIM5α Binding Site Spanning the Entire Outer Surface of the Murine Leukemia Virus Capsid Protein
• Biology
PLoS pathogens
• 2011
It is concluded that interactions involving much, if not all, of the surface of CA are vital for TRIM5 α binding, whereas structural studies of two mutants show that no major changes in the overall CA conformation are associated with escape from restriction.
Independent genesis of chimeric TRIM5-cyclophilin proteins in two primate species
• Biology
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
• 2008
It is reported that the seemingly improbable genesis of TRIMCyp has, in fact, occurred twice in primates and represents a striking example of convergent evolution in divergent species.

It is demonstrated that the human and African green monkey (AGM) TRIM5alpha genes encode Ref1 and Lv1 antiretroviral activities, respectively, and a drug that modifies the behavior of the related promyelocytic leukemia protein PML specifically rescues infection by viruses restricted by human TRim5alpha.
A single amino acid substitution in human APOBEC3G antiretroviral enzyme confers resistance to HIV-1 virion infectivity factor-induced depletion.

It is found that a single amino acid substitution mutant of human APOBEC3G (D128K) can interact with HIV-1 Vif but is not depleted from cells; thus, it inhibits HIV- 1 replication in an HIV-2 Vif-resistant manner.
A conserved mechanism of retrovirus restriction in mammals.

It is demonstrated that cell lines derived from various mammalian species, including humans, have an Fv1-like retrovirus restriction function, preventing N-tropic vector infection.
Retrovirus resistance factors Ref1 and Lv1 are species-specific variants of TRIM5alpha.

It is shown that lentivirus susceptibility factor 1 and Ref1 are species-specific variants of tripartite interaction motif 5alpha (TRIM5alpha), a cytoplasmic body component recently shown to block HIV-1 infection in rhesus macaque cells, and can indeed block infection by widely divergent retroviruses.
Positional cloning of the mouse retrovirus restriction gene Fvl

The cloned Fv1 gene appears to be derived from the gag region of an endogenous retrovirus unrelated to murine leukaemia virus, implying that the F v1 protein and its target may share functional similarities despite the absence of nucleotide-sequence homology.
A single amino acid difference in the host APOBEC3G protein controls the primate species specificity of HIV type 1 virion infectivity factor.

It is demonstrated that a single APOBEC3G residue controls the ability of the HIV-1 Vif protein to bind and inactivate these host defense factors, suggesting the biological barrier preventing the entry of additional SIV into the human population as zoonotic infections is potentially quite fragile.
A single amino acid of APOBEC3G controls its species-specific interaction with virion infectivity factor (Vif).
• Biology, Chemistry
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
• 2004
It is demonstrated that the species specificity of HIV-1 Vif is caused by a single amino acid difference in APOBEC3G, and it is proposed that this amino acid is positioned on a solvent-exposed loop of APOBec3G on the same face of the protein as the catalytic site.

Host cell barriers to the early phase of immunodeficiency virus replication explain the current distribution of these viruses among human and non-human primate species and reveal host cell components that modulate the uncoating of a retroviral capsid.
Trim5α protein restricts both HIV-1 and murine leukemia virus

It is hypothesized that the Trim family of proteins plays a widespread role in innate immunity to viral infection and that human, rhesus, and African green monkey Trim5α can restrict N-MLV.
