Novel HIV Therapeutic Approach: Targeting APOBEC-3G(A3G):RNA Complexes
Brief Description:APOBEC-3G (A3G) is a cytidine deaminase enzyme that interferes with the replication of HIV and other retroviruses by mutating viral nucleic acids, thus playing an important role in innate anti-viral immunity. Viral infectivity factor (Vif) is a protein found in HIV and other retroviruses which disrupts the antiviral activity of th...

Methods for Production of a Solution Assay and High-Throughput Screen to Probe the Interaction Between the Human Cullin-RING Ligase Complex and the HIV-1 Protein on a Muti-Milligram Scale
Brief Description:HIV-1 infection leads to the expression of the viral Vif protein which is essential to evade the host’s own A3G and A3F defense factors. Vif works in concert with the cell’s own ubiquitin ligase machinery to promote degradation of A3G and A3F. This requires a direct interaction between Vif and the human proteins Elongi...

Method to Prevent HIV Infection by Maintaining APOBEC3G (A3g) in Its More Active “Low Molecular Mass” (LMM) Form
Applications:The more active LMM form of APOBEC3G (A3g) prevents HIV from replicating within the host. Thus maintaining LMM-A3G and preventing the inactive HMM-A3G formation or preventing its degradation by the viral protein, Vif, would limit the ability of HIV to infect its host.Advantages:This technology provides a novel approach to increase the ...
