The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) has been intensely investigated since its discovery in 1983 as the cause of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). With relatively few proteins made by the virus, it is able to accomplish many tasks, with each protein serving multiple functions. The Envelope glycoprotein, composed of the two noncovalently linked subunits, SU (surface glycoprotein) and TM (transmembrane glycoprotein) is largely responsible for host cell recognition and entry… Expand
The Tale of the Long Tail: the Cytoplasmic Domain of HIV-1 gp41
TLDR
The gp41CDs of HIV-1 and SIV were shown to activate the key cellular-transcription factor NF-κB via the serine/threonine kinase TAK1 and potential roles in modulating the actin cytoskeleton and overcoming host cell restrictions are outlined. Expand
HTLV-1, the Other Pathogenic Yet Neglected Human Retrovirus: From Transmission to Therapeutic Treatment
TLDR
The present review mainly focuses on the course of HTLV-1 infection, from the initial infection of the host to diseases development and associated treatments, but also investigates HIV-1/HT LV-1 co-infection events and their impact on diseases development. Expand

TLDR
The molecular mechanism of envelope glycoprotein-mediated membrane merger and new challenges in understanding the HIV entry pathways and regulation of endosomal fusion are discussed. Expand
Leukemia and Retroviral Disease
TLDR
Several studies have demonstrated utilizing a number of in vitro models of HTLV-1/HIV-1 coinfections that the two viruses interact in a manner that results in enhanced ex‐ pression of both viral genomes, Nevertheless, there remains unresolved controversy regarding the overall impact of each virus on progression of disease caused by both viruses during the course of coinfection.

Investigation of the C-Terminal Helix of HIV-1 Matrix: A Region Essential for Multiple Functions in the Viral Life Cycle: A Dissertation
TLDR
This thesis sought to examine whether a highly conserved glutamate residue at position 99 in the understudied C-terminal helix of MA is required for HIV-1 replication, and found that substitution of this glutamate with either a valine or lysine residue disrupted Env incorporation into nascent HIV particles, and abrogated their ability to fuse with target-cell membranes. Expand
Mechanisms of HIV-associated lymphocyte regulated cell death.
TLDR
Understanding the potential mechanisms of how HIV-1 induces lymphocyte cell death is critical to the "kick and kill" cure strategy, which relies on the effective killing of reactivated, HIV- 1 infected cells. Expand
Mechanisms of HIV envelope-induced T lymphocyte apoptosis
TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge of Env-mediated T lymphocyte apoptosis and states that the HIV envelope glycoprotein plays a crucial role in HIV associated apoptosis through both death receptor-mediated and mitochondria-dependent pathways. Expand
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type-1
TLDR
Although cART has been greatly successful in suppressing viral replication and prolonging survival, antiretroviral therapy, to date, does not clear the HIV-1 from the body, and patients must continue to treatment for life. Expand
Slow Receptor Binding of the Noncytopathic HIV-2UC1 Envs Is Balanced by Long-Lived Activation State and Efficient Fusion Activity.
TLDR
It is shown that HIV-2UC1 Env interactions with the CD4 receptor exhibit slow association kinetics, whereas the dissociation kinetics is within the range of cytopathic strains. Expand
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Playing Hide-and-Seek: Understanding the TFH Cell Reservoir and Proposing Strategies to Overcome the Follicle Sanctuary
TLDR
This review focuses on a recently discovered HIV reservoir in a subset of CD4+ T cells called the follicular helper T (TFH) cells, the potential mechanisms for the emergence of reservoir in TFH cells, and the strategies to target and eliminate this viral reservoir. Expand

Role of the carboxy-terminal portion of the HIV-1 transmembrane protein in viral transmission and cytopathogenicity.
TLDR
The data suggest that conformational determinants or specific sequences are responsible for the observed changes, rather than simply the length of the gp41 cytoplasmic tail. Expand
Genotypic and phenotypic characterization of HIV-1 patients with primary infection.
TLDR
In five HIV-1 seroconverters, the viral phenotype was found to be uniformly macrophage-tropic and non-syncytium-inducing and the viruses were genotypically homogeneous within each patient, but a common signature sequence was not discernible among transmitted viruses. Expand
Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 Vpu protein induces rapid degradation of CD4
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the presence of the HIV-1-encoded integral membrane protein Vpu can reduce the formation of Env-CD4 complexes, resulting in increased gp160 processing and decreased CD4 stability. Expand
Insights into the biology of HIV-1 viral protein R.
HIV-1 viral protein R (Vpr) is a small, highly conserved accessory protein encoded by the HIV genome that serves many functions in the viral life cycle. Vpr induces G2 cell cycle arrest, which isExpand
Shorter size of transmembrane glycoprotein of an HIV-1 isolate.

The CD4 (T4) antigen is an essential component of the receptor for the AIDS retrovirus

It is concluded that the CD4 antigen is an essential and specific component of the receptor for the causative agent of AIDS. Expand
A novel gene of HIV-1, vpu, and its 16-kilodalton product.
TLDR
The data suggest that the vpu gene product is required for efficient virus replication and may have a role in assembly or maturation of progeny virions. Expand
Nucleocytoplasmic Shuttling by Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Vpr
TLDR
HIV-1 Vpr is defined as a nucleocytoplasmic shuttling protein because the carboxy-terminal region of Vpr contains a bipartite nuclear localization signal (NLS) composed of multiple arginine residues. Expand
Identification of a major co-receptor for primary isolates of HIV-1
TLDR
The principal cofactor for entry mediated by the envelope glycoproteins of primary macrophage-tropic strains of HIV-1 is CC-CKR-5, a receptor for the β-chemokines RANTES, Mip-1α and MIP-1β. Expand
Mutual functional destruction of HIV-1 Vpu and host TASK-1 channel.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that TASK and Vpu physically interact in cultured cells and in AIDS lymphoid tissues, and this virus-host interaction may influence HIV-1/AIDS progression, as well as electrical signaling in infected host tissues. Expand
