gp160

gp160

a glycoprotein found on the outer surface, or envelope, of the human immunodeficiency virus. It is composed of gp120, which protrudes from the envelope, and gp41, which is embedded in the envelope.

The test uses either recombinant or synthetic peptides corresponding to four HIV-1 antigens, gp160, gp41, p31 and p24, and two corresponding to HIV-2 antigens, gp140 and gp36.
