Protein Core Abstract: Dr. Matsuo will direct the Protein Core and a staff of two full-fime scientists. The Protein Core will service the Program Project entitled """"""""Crifical Interactions of APOBECSs: Molecular Approaches to Novel HIV Therapies"""""""" by: (i) purifing isotope-labeled and non-labeled proteins from E. coli for use by all program investigators and (ii) purifing proteins from human HEK29S cells for use by all program invesfigators. All proteins will be tested for purity and activity prior to distribution.
The interactions of the cellular APOBECS proteins and HIV Vif can dictate the fate of a viral infection. Our program scientists aim to provide the most comprehensive information to date on these life-or-death interactions. Our capacity to product large quantities of funcfionally active proteins will help fuel their progress.
