Abstract

Mutational studies on the Vif , Vpr , Vpu , Vpx , and Nef genes of human immunodeficiency virus types 1 and 2 (HIV-1 and HIV-2) were performed to evaluate their biological functions in natural target cells. For this purpose, replication properties of mutant viruses derived from HIV-1 NL strain and HIV-2 GH strain in unstimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells were determined. Vif − viruses of both HIV-1 and HIV-2 did not grow at all in these cells. Similarly, no replication of HIV-2 Vpx − mutant was detected. In contrast, both of Vpr − and Nef − viruses of HIV-1 and HIV-2, and Vpu − virus of HIV-1 grew quite well in the cells. These results show, together with the data previously reported, that only Vif and Vpx are essential for HIV replication in primary blood cell cultures.
