    The HIV-1 Gag protein is encoded by the viral genome and is initially synthesized as a 55 kD polypeptide in the infected cell. It carries essential determinants that mediate its association with cellular membranes and Gag-Gag interactions leading to assembly and production of progeny virions that contain about 1500 copies of Gag protein. The...
