Human immunodeficiency virus 1, envelope glycoprotein Gp120 (IPR000777)

Short name: HIV1_Gp120

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



The envelope glycoprotein Gp160 of HIV1 is cleaved into the surface protein Gp120 and the transmembrane protein Gp41. The entry of HIV requires interaction of viral Gp120 with the CD4 glycoprotein and a chemokine receptor on the cell surface [PMID: 9641677].
