HIV-1 gene

Any of the genes present in the human immunodeficiency virus. See AIDS.
HIV genes
art/trs gene rev gene, see there.
env gene Encodes viral coat proteins gp 120 and gp 41, which mediate CD4 binding and membrane fusion, controlled by tat and rev
gag gene Encodes nucleocapsid core proteins including p24
nef gene 3´ orf, B gene, ORF-2 gene Encodes a protein of unknown function found in infected Pts that may down-regulate viral expression–nef deletion results in a five-fold increase in viral DNA synthesis and replication
pol gene Encodes reverse transcriptase, protease, integrase and ribonuclease
R gene Encodes TAR–transcription activating response element, which has a nonspecific immunodeficiency effect
rev gene art/trs gene Encodes a 19 kD post-transcriptional protein regulator required for HIV replication, up-regulating HIV synthesis by transactivating anti-repression, ↑ levels of envelope RNA by regulating the env gene; inactivation of rev prevents viral replication–as measured by the successful production of the p24 glycoprotein by infected monocytes can be massively ↑ by adding cytokines to culture medium
tat gene Encodes a potent 14 kD transcription activator that amplifies HIV replication, the inactivation prevents viral replication
vif gene Facilitates infectivity of free HIV
vpr gene Encodes a weak transcription activator
vpu gene Unique to HIV-1, encodes a 16 kD product which, when mutated, has a 5-10-fold Ø in replicative capacity and is critical for efficient budding of virions NEJM 1991; 324:308rv

En el segundo periodo, posterior al disturbio producido por las carpas, se registro un descenso en el numero de individuos observados durante los muestreos, ademas no se observo el pico de actividad de entradas con polen a las 10:00 h, mientras que, aunque menos pronunciado, se mantuvo el pico de actividad de las 11 h (Fig.
A interacao ciclo produtivo x cultivar mostrou efeito significativo para o numero de graos de polen por flor (Tabela 1); numero de ovulos por flor (Tabela 2); razao polen/ovulo (Tabela 3), sendo o mesmo nao obtido para germinacao in vitro dos graos de polen, uma vez que somente teve significancia para cada fator isolado (tabela 4).
(1998) consideran el polen como fuente de proteinas en la colmena y logran establecer una relacion directa entre la proteina contenida en la hemolinfa de las abejas y el aporte proteico que entra en la colmena, a traves del analisis del polen corbicular traido por las abejas a la colmena.
Sus flores suelen tener la corola acampanada, el androceo de 8 a 10 estambres, anteras poricidas y el polen permanece unido en tetradas, el gineceo presenta un estigma, y el fruto es una falsa baya (Ligarreto 2009).
