Monoclonal antibody-mediated inhibition of RNA binding and annealing activities of HIV type 1 nucleocapsid protein.

Abstract

Retroviral nucleocapsid (NC) proteins are highly basic, with one or two zinc fingers, and are required for virion formation, genomic RNA dimerization and packaging, and replication primer tRNA annealing to the viral RNA. We report here the first characterization of monoclonal antibodies directed against a retroviral nucleocapsid protein and their use to… (More)
