HIV-1 Envelope FRETted Over by Antibodies.

Summary of "HIV-1 Envelope FRETted Over by Antibodies."

The HIV-1 Envelope (Env) is a metastable protein that displays several conformational states. In recent works, Lu et al. (2019) in Nature and Alsahafi et al. (2019) in Cell Host & Microbe show that antibodies displaying neutralization or antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) target different conformations of the viral glycoprotein.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Antibodies to the HEPATITIS A ANTIGENS including antibodies to envelope, core, and non-structural proteins.

Antibodies to the HEPATITIS C ANTIGENS including antibodies to envelope, core, and non-structural proteins.

An envelope protein of the human immunodeficiency virus that is encoded by the HIV env gene. It has a molecular weight of 160,000 kDa and contains numerous glycosylation sites. It serves as a precursor for both the HIV ENVELOPE PROTEIN GP120 and the HIV ENVELOPE PROTEIN GP41.

Antibodies that inhibit the reaction between ANTIGEN and other antibodies or sensitized T-LYMPHOCYTES (e.g., antibodies of the IMMUNOGLOBULIN G class that compete with IGE antibodies for antigen, thereby blocking an allergic response). Blocking antibodies that bind tumors and prevent destruction of tumor cells by CYTOTOXIC T-LYMPHOCYTES have also been called enhancing antibodies. (Rosen et al., Dictionary of Immunology, 1989)

Antibodies which react with the individual structural determinants (idiotopes) on the variable region of other antibodies.
