Human retrovirology is a rapidly advancing area of inquiry in medical microbiology and the study of infectious disease. This volume features recent information on human T cell leukemia viruses type 1 and 2 and on the two immunodeficiency-causing retroviruses, HIV-1 and HIV-2. In addition, it presents exploratory data on animal models of human retroviruses and the search for human retroviruses associated with multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythrematosis. The molecular biology of HTLV-1 is detailed, particularly the functions of the tax and rex proteins which have become a major focus, not only for the understanding of the function of this virus but also as models of gene regulation in eukaryotic cells. Similiarly, the molecular genetics and functional role products of HIV-1 and 2 are discussed at length.
