Role of HIV-1 Vpr-induced apoptosis on the release of mitochondrial lysyl-tRNA synthetase.


Mitochondrial lysyl-tRNA synthetase (LysRS) is thought to be involved in the specific packaging of tRNA(3)(Lys) into HIV-1 viral particles. The HIV-1 auxiliary viral protein Vpr is an apoptogenic protein that affects the integrity of the mitochondrial membrane and has also been reported to interact with LysRS. In the present study, we show that HIV-1 Vpr… (More)
