USC team reveals structure of APOBEC family protein
Researchers at the University of Southern California have provided the first 3-D view of a protein from an enzyme family that, through its ability to mutate genes, can both help and hinder human health.

In addition to fighting HIV, APOBEC-3G can inhibit the Hepatitis B virus. Other members of the apobec
family serve important roles in antibody maturation, fat metabolism and heart development.

APOBEC3G - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
APOBEC3G is a human protein belonging to the APOBEC
superfamily of proteins that interferes with the replication of HIV and other retroviruses. This family of proteins has been suggested to play an important role in innate anti-viral immunity.
