  • Function

    DNA deaminase (cytidine deaminase) that mediates a form of innate resistance to retroviral infections (at least to HIV-1 infection) by triggering G-to-A hypermutation in the newly synthesized viral DNA. The replacements C-to-U in the minus strand DNA of HIV-1 during reverse transcription, leads to G-to-A transitions in the plus strand. The inhibition of viral replication is either due to the degradation of the minus strand before its integration or to the lethality of the hypermutations. Modification of both DNA strands is not excluded. This antiviral activity is neutralized by the virion infectivity factor (VIF), that prevents the incorporation of APOBEC3G into progeny HIV-1 virions by both inhibiting its translation and/or by inducing its ubiquitination and subsequent degradation by the 26S proteasome. APOBEC3G binds a variety of RNAs, but does not display detectable APOB, NF1 and NAT1 mRNA editing.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in spleen, testes, ovary and peripheral blood leukocytes and CD4+ lymphocytes. Also expressed in non-permissive peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and several tumor cell lines; no expression detected in permissive lymphoid and non-lymphoid cell lines.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the cytidine and deoxycytidylate deaminase family.
  • Post-translational

    Ubiquitinated in the presence of HIV-1 VIF. Association with VIF targets the protein for proteolysis by the ubiquitin-dependent proteasome pathway.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Mainly cytoplasmic. Small amount are found in the nucleus. During HIV-1 infection, virion-encapsidated in absence of HIV-1 VIF.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry. I have searched our catalog for antibodies to APOBEC3G and HIV tat proteins that have been used successfully in ELISA. Here are some recommendations: For APOBEC3G: ab71634 and ab38604, which are both available for €360.00 + shipping. For HIV tat: ab42359, ab63957, ab43014 and ab42360, which are all available for €360.00 + shipping. Lastly, I'm sorry but I'm not sure what you mean when you say "sponsor me with the antibodies". I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.
