We previously reported that truncation of the terminal 146 amino acids of the macaque simian immunodeficiency virus SIVmac239 envelope glycoprotein enhanced envelope-specific syncytium formation in HeLa T4, CEM X 174, and HUT 78 cell lines and caused a change in the conformation of the transmembrane subunit of the envelope complex on the surface of these cells [Ritter et al. (1993) Virology 197, 255-264; Spies et al. (1994) J. Virol. 68, 585-591]. To investigate the effects of different lengths… CONTINUE READING
