Within this framework, much remains to be learned about factors that govern the control and extent of infection. The hope is that immunologic or other factors that control or prevent infection can be identified and applied successfully in this, as yet, incurable disease. References 1.

During the synthesis of the Pr55gag polyprotein, the fatty acid myristate is attached to the amino terminal end (p17) of the precursor protein. Myristoylation of Pr55gag appears to be required for production of infectious virions. 13 The p9 protein contains multiple cysteine residues that probably help to form the specific secondary necessary for nucleic acid binding. The function of the proline-rich virion core protein p9 remains unclear. A second polyprotein precursor, the Pr180gag-pol, contains the gag, protease, polymerase, and integrase gene products translated from the same genomic messenger RNA as the gag polyprotein Pr55gag.

45 Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a polyclonal B-cell stimulator. Infection with EBV is almost universal in AIDS patients, and it is proposed that loss of T-cell control results in reactivation of latent EBV infection, leading to polyclonal 40 A. C. Mawle and J. S. McDougal B-cell activation. 39 Other postulates for which there is less experimental support include a T-cell dysregulation phenomenon and the hypothesis that HIV-1-infected cells release B-cell-stimulating lymphokines. Monocytes/Macrophages Human monocytes and their tissue counterparts, macrophages, express the CD4 molecule and can be infected with HIV-l.
