The envelope (env) and structural (gag) gene products of human T-cell leukemia
(lymphotropic) virus type III were identified by immunoaffinity chromatography,
immunoprecipitation, and two-dimensional oligopeptide mapping methods. The env gene
specifies a glycosylated polypeptide with a molecular weight of 160,000 (gp160) that is
processed to gp120 and smaller gene products. The gag gene specifies two polypeptides of
70,000 and 55,000 molecular weight (p70 and p55), both of which contain p24, the major …
