Proteins that bind high-mannose sugars of the HIV envelope.


A broad range of proteins bind high-mannose carbohydrates found on the surface of the envelope protein gp120 of the human immunodeficiency virus and thus interfere with the viral life cycle, providing a potential new way of controlling HIV infection. These proteins interact with the carbohydrate moieties in different ways. A group of them interacts as… (More)
