Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the pathogen which causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). This section includes information about HIV's interaction with the immune system, current treatments, and a problem set to test your knowledge.
Molecular Insights Into HIV Biology
Bringing the global HIV epidemic under control will require more effective approaches to prevent the spread of the retrovirus, as well as broader use of existing and future antiretroviral drugs.
Structural biology of HIV.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) genome encodes a total of three structural proteins, two envelope proteins, three enzymes, and six accessory proteins.
Molecular Biology of HIV
HIV is also a retrovirus. This means that it has a single stranded RNA genome that is converted to a double stranded cDNA by reverse transcriptase.
