HIV Envelope Glycoprotein

PDB ID: 1GC1

Envelope glycoprotein attaches HIV to the cells that it infects and powers fusion of the virus with the cell membrane. This structure includes a shortened version of gp120, the portion the envelope glycoprotein that attaches to cell surfaces, bound to the cellular receptor CD4 and an antibody.
