Protein Name: p24 capsid Gene: gag Source: HIV1 Acc. No.: PR.U13121164
SwissProt ID: sp|P04591|HIV-1 HXB2 GAG|
RefSeq ID: ref|NP_057850.1|
Motifs: PS00005, PS00006, PS00008, PS00007,
Function(s): -Forms the conical core of the viral particle that encapsulates the genomic RNA-nucleocapsid complex
Description: It is composed of two copies of positive single-stranded RNA that codes for the virus's nine genes enclosed by a conical capsid composed of 2,000 copies of the viral protein p24. The single-stranded RNA is tightly bound to nucleocapsid proteins, p7 and enzymes needed for the development of the virion such as reverse transcriptase, proteases, ribonuclease and integrase. A matrix composed of the viral protein p17 surrounds the capsid ensuring the integrity of the virion particle.
