Annotation score:4 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Involved in capsid formation and genome binding. Shortly after infection, interaction between incoming particle-associated Gag proteins and host dynein allows centrosomal targeting of the viral genome (associated to Gag), prior to nucleus translocation and integration into host genome (By similarity).By similarity

Miscellaneous

Foamy viruses are distinct from other retroviruses in many respects. Their protease is active as an uncleaved Pro-Pol protein. Mature particles do not include the usual processed retroviral structural protein (MA, CA and NC), but instead contain two large Gag proteins. Their functional nucleic acid appears to be either RNA or dsDNA (up to 20% of extracellular particles), because they probably proceed either to an early (before integration) or late reverse transcription (after assembly). Foamy viruses have the ability to retrotranspose intracellularly with high efficiency. They bud predominantly into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and occasionally at the plasma membrane. Budding requires the presence of Env proteins. Most viral particles probably remain within the infected cell.

Gag protein specifically interacts with the N-terminus of leader peptide. This specific interaction between Gag protein and Env glycoprotein may compensate for the lack of a Gag membrane targeting signal, and allow particle egress. The capsid is composed of multimeric Gag protein.

Interacts with host light chain cytoplasmic dynein DYNLL1; this interaction is critical for intracellular microtubule-dependent viral genome transport toward the centrosome (By similarity).

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i66A97BAA9A76519E
