Analysis of Human Retroviral Regulatory Proteins Tax and Tat
The human retroviruses HTLV-I (human T-cell leukemia virus) and HIV-1 (human immunodeficiency virus) code, in addition to a complete set of replicatory genes (gag, pol, and env), for several regulatory genes including the trans-activators tax and tat, respectively, both of which lead to high expression of viral gene products. The molecular mechanism underlying these events is, however, different for the two proteins.
