The presence of the casein kinase II phosphorylation sites of Vpu enhances the CD4(+) T cell loss caused by the simian-human immunodeficiency virus SHIV(KU-lbMC33) in pig-tailed macaques
Stephens EB, et al.The results indicate that casein kinase II phosphorylation sites of Vpu contributes to the pathogenicity of the SHIV(KU-1bMC33) and suggest that the SHIV(KU-1bMC33)/pig-tailed macaque model will be useful in analyzing amino acids/domains of Vpu that contribute to the pathogenesis of HIV-1.
