HIV-1 Envelope Under Attack

Wei Wei, Xiao Fang Yu

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) envelope (Env) plays a critical role in viral replication and represents a potential target for host antiviral factors. Recent work by Tada and colleagues identifies membrane-associated-RING-CH8 (MARCH8) as a potent anti-HIV factor blocking virion incorporation of Env. Thus, MARCH8 joins a growing list of host factors attacking HIV-1 Env.
