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 infections and cancers to thrive. Without treatment, average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype. Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
Despite extensive sequence heterology between HIV-1 and HIV-2, the structures of the HIV-1 and HIV-2 envelope proteins are similar, with HIV-2 gp36 mediating the fusogenic activity of the HIV-2 envelope, and representing the structural and functional equi
