The HIV-1 nucleocapsid protein recruits negatively charged lipids to ensure its optimal binding to lipid membranes.

Abstract

UNLABELLED The HIV-1 Gag polyprotein precursor composed of the matrix (MA), capsid (CA), nucleocapsid (NC), and p6 domains orchestrates virus assembly via interactions between MA and the cell plasma membrane (PM) on one hand and NC and the genomic RNA on the other hand. As the Gag precursor can adopt a bent conformation, a potential interaction of the NC… (More)
