A bipartite membrane-binding signal in the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 matrix protein is required for the proteolytic processing of Gag precursors in a cell type-dependent manner.


It is unclear whether proteolytic processing of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) Gag protein is dependent on virus assembly at the plasma membrane. Mutations that prevent myristylation of HIV-1 Gag proteins have been shown to block virus assembly and release from the plasma membrane of COS cells but do not prevent processing of Gag proteins… (More)
