The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (slowly replicating retrovirus) that causes the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic
HIV1 (gag) p55 is a precursor protein of several proteins that form the core structure of AIDS virus, indispensable to its reproduction. This protein is digested by HIV1 protease, first into intermediate products p41 and p15. Then p41 is digested into matrix protein p17 and capsid protein p24. Protein p15 is further digested into nucleocapsid protein p7 and to p6 and p1; of unknown function. Nine genes are encoded within the HIV1 RNA genome. Three of these genes, gag, pol, and env, contain information needed to make the structural proteins for new virus particles.
