A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The multivalent pseudopeptide HB-19 that binds the cell-surface-expressed nucleolin is a potent inhibitor of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection by blocking virus particle attachment and thus anchorage in the plasma membrane. We show that cross-linking of surface-bound HB-19A (like HB-19 but with a modified template) results in aggregation of HB-19A with surface nucleolin. Consistent with its specific action, HB-19A binding to different types of cells reaches saturation at concentrations that have been reported to result in inhibition of HIV infection. By using Chinese hamster ovary mutant cell lines, we confirm that the binding of HB-19A to surface nucleolin is independent of heparan and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans. In vitro generated full-length nucleolin was found to bind HB-19A, whereas the N-terminal part containing the acidic amino acid stretches of nucleolin did not. The use of various deletion constructs of the C-terminal part of nucleolin then permitted the identification of the extreme C-terminal end of nucleolin, containing repeats of the amino acid motif, RGG, as the domain that binds HB-19A. Finally, a synthetic peptide corresponding to the last C-terminal 63 amino acids was able to inhibit HIV infection at the stage of HIV attachment to cells, thus suggesting that this domain could be functional in the HIV anchorage process.
