31 HIV Genes
Background image of page 29
32 HIV Genome LTR —long terminal repeat = segments of DNA at ends of provirus; controls proviral DNA transcription tat gene: (transactivator) when is active, HIV replicates quickly; cell undergoes lysis rev gene: (r egulator of e xpression of v iral protein) rev can slow down or speed up viral replication
