Demystifying Cell Cycle Arrest by HIV-1 Vif

Daniel J. Salamango, Reuben S. Harris

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although APOBEC3 degradation is the canonical function of HIV-1 Vif, this viral protein also induces potent cell cycle arrest through a newly defined mechanism. Here, we review recent advances in this area and propose that the scope of this activity may go beyond subversion of the host cell cycle.
