Description: HIV-1 nucleocapsid protein p7 (NC) is a zinc-finger protein that plays crucial roles in genome recognition, dimerization, and packaging of viral RNA into infectious particles. Much of the functionality of NC is believed to arise from the specific architecture of its two zinc-finger domains, which are highly conserved regions found in all known retroviruses. Prior studies have shown that mutation of NC zinc-finger domains renders the viral particle non-infectious. Therefore, complete elucidation of the chaperone properties and RNA-binding mechanism of NC are necessary for the development of small drug inhibitors aimed at disrupting the packaging of the AIDS virus.
