The HTLV-1 gp21 glycoprotein is involved in envelope trafficking and membrane targeting while bZIP protein is indispensable for cell growth and proliferation. This study aimed to assess the molecular diversity of gp21 and HBZ proteins, in TSP/HAM and healthy carriers. DNA samples from HTLV-1 infected individuals were submitted to PCR, sequencing, and the… CONTINUE READING
