HIV covers its protein capsid with a viral envelop where GP160 is located. This glycoprotein facilitates fusion between the viral membrane and the host -cell membrane allowing liberation of the viral contents into the host cell. GP160 forms a trimer, where each monomer consists in two non-covalently associated subunits: a surface subunit GP120 that recognize and bind to specific receptor on the host cell and a transmembrane subunit GP41 that promotes membrane fusion.
