General annotation (Comments)

Function

The products of the Gag polyproteins of infectious retroviruses perform highly complex orchestrated tasks during the assembly, budding, maturation, and infection stages of the viral replication cycle. During viral assembly, the proteins form membrane associations and self-associations that ultimately result in budding of an immature virion from the infected cell. Gag precursors also function during viral assembly to selectively bind and package two plus strands of genomic RNA. Endogenous Gag proteins may have kept, lost or modified their original function during evolution.

Subcellular location

Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor Potential.

Post-translational modification

Myristoylation is essential for retroviral assembly. Alteration of the glycine residue leads to a block in the budding of particles and an accumulation of Gag inside the cell By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the gamma type-C retroviral Gag protein family. HERV class-I H gag subfamily.

Caution

Truncated; premature stop codon.
