UniProt functional annotation for Q72497

UniProt code: Q72497.

Organism: Human immunodeficiency virus 1.
Taxonomy: Viruses; Retro-transcribing viruses; Retroviridae; Orthoretrovirinae; Lentivirus; Primate lentivirus group.
 
Function: Capsid protein p24 forms the conical core of the virus that encapsulates the genomic RNA-nucleocapsid complex (By similarity).
 
Function: Nucleocapsid protein p7 encapsulates and protects viral dimeric unspliced (genomic) RNA. Binds these RNAs through its zinc fingers (By similarity).
 
Subcellular location: Matrix protein p17: Virion (By similarity).
Subcellular location: Virion (By similarity).
Ptm: Specific enzymatic cleavages by the viral protease yield mature proteins (By similarity).
Similarity: Contains CCHC-type zinc fingers.
