Accumulating evidence indicates that human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) acquires various cellular membrane proteins in the lipid bilayer of the viral envelope membrane. Although some virion-incorporated cellular membrane proteins are known to potently affect HIV-1 infectivity, the virological functions of most virion-incorporated membrane proteins… CONTINUE READING
