Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...e structures called liposomes. FP-23 likely plays several roles in viral fusion, according to the researchers. One role already suspected is that FP-23 attaches to its T cell victim to facilitate a change in the shape of gp41, which in turn drives uptake of HIV RNA and proteins by the T cell. But the Carneg...
