Host DNA

Some articles on host dna, host, dna:

HIV Integration Mechanism - Transfer of HIV DNA Into The Host DNA (Strand Transfer)
... the strand transfer reaction, takes place inside the host cell nucleus and involves the critical step of inserting the HIV DNA into a selected region of the host DNA ... This strand transfer reaction is initiated as the HIV integrase catalyzes the HIV DNA 3’-hydroxyl group attack on the host DNA ... The attack by the HIV DNA occurs on opposite strands of the host DNA in a staggered fashion, typically 4-6 base pairs apart ...
HIV Integration - Background Information: HIV-1 Integrase
... The integration of HIV DNA into the host DNA is a critical step in the HIV life cycle ... HIV’s enzyme for inserting the DNA version of its genome into the host cell DNA is called its "integrase" ... the “cut-and-paste” action of clipping the host DNA and joining the proviral genome to the clipped ends ...
HIV Integration Mechanism - Repair of The Gaps Formed in The Strand Transfer Process ("Gap Repair")
... Following the strand transfer process, the HIV-DNA and host DNA junctions have unpaired regions of DNA, referred to as DNA "gaps" ... the two base pairs at the end of the 5’ region of the viral DNA remain unpaired after the strand transfer ... The insertion of the new HIV DNA and the remaining gaps that flank the integration site induce a host cellular DNA damage response ...

Famous quotes containing the words dna and/or host:

    Here [in London, history] ... seemed the very fabric of things, as if the city were a single growth of stone and brick, uncounted strata of message and meaning, age upon age, generated over the centuries to the dictates of some now all-but-unreadable DNA of commerce and empire.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)

    Carlyle’s works, it is true, have not the stereotyped success which we call classic. They are a rich but inexpensive entertainment, at which we are not concerned lest the host has strained or impoverished himself to feed his guests. It is not the most lasting word, nor the loftiest wisdom, but rather the word which comes last.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
