Interactions of HTF4 with E-box motifs in the long terminal repeat of human immunodeficiency virus type 1.

Abstract

We have identified three consensus E-box motifs in the long terminal repeat of human immunodeficiency virus type 1. One of these E boxes interacts selectively with representative members of the class A group of basic helix-loop-helix proteins, including HTF4, E47, and their heterodimers. Our analyses implicate the helix-loop-helix proteins in regulation of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 gene expression.
