New breakthrough imaging shows HIV structure in unprecedented detail.


Envelope glycoprotein GP120 is a glycoprotein exposed on the surface of the HIV envelope (ENV).  The envelope glycoprotein trimer is essential for HIV entry into cells as it plays a vital role in attachment to specific cell surface receptors.  To develop a vaccine against HIV, researchers need a detailed map of these glycans to reveal the small holes in the
