Evaluation of global HIV/SIV envelope gp120 RNA structure and evolution within and among infected hosts

Lentiviral RNA genomes contain structural elements that play critical roles in viral replication. Although structural features of 5'-untranslated regions have been well characterized, attempts to identify important structures in other genomic regions by Selective 2'-Hydroxyl Acylation analyzed by Primer Extension (SHAPE) have led to conflicting structural and mechanistic conclusions. Previous approaches accounted neither for sequence heterogeneity that is ubiquitous in viral populations, nor for selective constraints operating at the protein level. We developed an approach...
