1918 vif Human immunodeficiency virus 155459 9629361 HIV1gp3 NP_057851.1 p23 Virulence factor MUTATION: A mutation in the vif gene reduces viral replication and infectivity in nonpermissive cells (Farrow et al., 2005). 15989462
1919 vpr Human immunodeficiency virus 155807 28872817 HIV1gp4 NP_057852.2 p15 Virulence factor MUTATION: T cell infections using vesicular stomatitis virus G (VSV-G) pseudotyped HIV-1 Vpr R77Q result in less (P = 0.01) T cell death than infections using wild-type Vpr, despite similar levels of viral replication. Wild-type Vpr-associated events, including procaspase-8 and -3 cleavage, loss of mitochondrial transmembrane potential (deltapsi(m)), and DNA fragmentation factor activation are attenuated by R77Q Vpr. There is also a higher frequency of R77Q Vpr mutations in patients with LTNP than in patients with progressive disease (Lum et al., 2003). 12750404
1920 nef Human immunodeficiency virus 156110 28872818 HIV1gp9 NP_057857.2 p27 Virulence factor MUTATION: HIV-1 replication in vivo can be separated from its pathogenic activity, in that the HXB/LW virus replicated to high levels in SCID-hu Thy/Liv mice, with no significant thymocyte depletion. Restoration of the nef gene in the recombinant HXB/LW genome restored its pathogenic activity, with no significant effect on HIV-1 replication in the thymus. Implicating nef as a determinant of pathogenicity (Duus et al., 2001). 11264380
