Membrane fusion induced by the HIV type 1 fusion peptide: modulation by factors affecting glycoprotein 41 activity and potential anti-HIV compounds.


Peptides representing a sequence of 23 amino acid residues at the N terminus of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) envelope glycoprotein gp41 bind and subsequently induce fusion of large unilamellar vesicles (LUV), an activity presumably related to gp41 function in viral infection. These in vitro effects can be modulated by several factors that are… (More)
