HIV gene causes formation of nuclear herniations halting cell division, Gladstone researchers find
An HIV gene called Vpr causes the membrane surrounding the nucleus-the nuclear envelope-to form herniations that project and retract much like solar flares radiating from the surface of the sun, giving clues as to how HIV conquers the immune system.
