Organism
Human T-cell leukemia virus 1 (strain Japan MT-2 subtype A) (HTLV-1)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Gag polyprotein: The matrix domain targets Gag, Gag-Pro and Gag-Pro-Pol polyproteins to the plasma membrane via a multipartite membrane binding signal, that includes its myristoylated N-terminus.By similarity
Matrix protein p19: Matrix protein.By similarity
Capsid protein p24: Forms the spherical core of the virus that encapsulates the genomic RNA-nucleocapsid complex.By similarity
Nucleocapsid protein p15-gag: Binds strongly to viral nucleic acids and promote their aggregation. Also destabilizes the nucleic acids duplexes via highly structured zinc-binding motifs.By similarity

Miscellaneous

HTLV-1 lineages are divided in four clades, A (Cosmopolitan), B (Central African group), C (Melanesian group) and D (New Central African group).Curated

Post-translational modificationi

Gag polyprotein: Specific enzymatic cleavages by the viral protease yield mature proteins. The polyprotein is cleaved during and after budding, this process is termed maturation.By similarity
Matrix protein p19: Phosphorylation of the matrix protein p19 by MAPK1 seems to play a role in budding.By similarity
Gag polyprotein: Ubiquitinated by host NEDD4.By similarity
Gag polyprotein: Myristoylated (PubMed:2547372). Myristoylation of the matrix (MA) domain mediates the transport and binding of Gag polyproteins to the host plasma membrane and is required for the assembly of viral particles.By similarity1 Publication

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Gag polyprotein: Homodimer; the homodimers are part of the immature particles. Gag polyprotein: Interacts with human TSG101 and NEDD4; these interactions are essential for budding and release of viral particles. Matrix protein p19: Homodimer; further assembles as homohexamers.By similarity

Domaini

Gag polyprotein: Late-budding domains (L domains) are short sequence motifs essential for viral particle release. They can occur individually or in close proximity within structural proteins. They interacts with sorting cellular proteins of the multivesicular body (MVB) pathway. Most of these proteins are class E vacuolar protein sorting factors belonging to ESCRT-I, ESCRT-II or ESCRT-III complexes. Matrix protein p19 contains two L domains: a PTAP/PSAP motif which interacts with the UEV domain of TSG101, and a PPXY motif which binds to the WW domains of the ubiquitin ligase NEDD4.By similarity
Capsid protein p24: The capsid protein N-terminus seems to be involved in Gag-Gag interactions.By similarity
Nucleocapsid protein p15-gag: The C-terminus is acidic.By similarity
