Inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitor heavy chain family, member 4

The protein encoded by this gene is secreted into the blood, where it is cleaved by plasma kallikrein into two smaller forms. Expression of this gene has been detected only in liver, and it seems to be upregulated during surgical trauma. This gene is part of a cluster of similar genes on chromosome 3. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from NCBI)

Papers on gp120
Epitope target structures of Fc-mediated effector function during HIV-1 acquisition.
Devico et al., Baltimore, United States. In Curr Opin Hiv Aids, 25 Apr 2014

Elucidating a Key Component of Cancer Metastasis: CXCL12 (SDF-1α) Binding to CXCR4.
Floudas et al., In J Chem Inf Model, 24 Apr 2014
We also recently utilized this protocol to elucidate the binding of an HIV-1 gp120 V3 loop in complex with CXCR4, and a comparison between the molecular recognition of CXCR4 by CXCL12 and the HIV-1 gp120 V3 loop shows that both CXCL12 and the HIV-1 gp120 V3 loop share the same CXCR4 binding pocket, as they mostly interact with the same CXCR4 residues.
Blocking interaction of viral gp120 and CD4-expressing T cells by single-stranded DNA aptamers.
Zu et al., Houston, United States. In Int J Biochem Cell Biol, 21 Apr 2014
Importantly, the aptamers selectively bound CD4 on human cells and disrupted the interaction of viral gp120 to CD4 receptors, which is a prerequisite step of HIV-1 infection.
Peptides Derived from HIV-1 gp120 Co-receptor Binding Domain Form Amyloid Fibrils and Enhance HIV-1 Infection.
Liu et al., Guangzhou, China. In Febs Lett, 18 Apr 2014
We found peptides derived from the HIV-1 gp120 co-receptor binding region, which are defined as enhancing peptides (EPs), could form amyloid fibrils and remarkably enhance HIV-1 infection.
HIV-1 Vaccines: Challenges and New perspectives.
Kim et al., Bethesda, United States. In Hum Vaccin Immunother, 17 Apr 2014
The correlate of risk analysis showed that IgG antibodies against the gp120 V2 loop correlated with decreased risk of HIV infection, while Env-specific IgA directly correlated with increased risk.

Smith et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Acc Chem Res, 06 Mar 2014
Entry of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) into target T-cells entails an interaction between CD4 on the host T-cell and gp120, a component of the trimeric envelope glycoprotein spike on the virion surface.
Crystal structure of a soluble cleaved HIV-1 envelope trimer.
Wilson et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Science, Jan 2014
The structure shows a prefusion state of gp41, the interaction between the component gp120 and gp41 subunits, and how a close association between the gp120 V1/V2/V3 loops stabilizes the trimer apex around the threefold axis.
Cryo-EM structure of a fully glycosylated soluble cleaved HIV-1 envelope trimer.
Ward et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Science, Jan 2014
The structure also provides insights into trimer assembly, gp120-gp41 interactions, and the CD4bs epitope cluster for bnAbs, which covers a more extensive area and defines a more complex site of vulnerability than previously described.
Alterations in HIV-1 gp120 V3 Region Are Necessary but Not Sufficient for Coreceptor Switching in CRF07_BC in China.

However, HIV-1 strains with mutations resulting in loss of an N-linked glycan from the V5 loop of the envelope glycoprotein gp120 are resistant to ibalizumab.
Novel directions in HIV-1 vaccines revealed from clinical trials.
Russell et al., Bethesda, United States. In Curr Opin Hiv Aids, Sep 2013
The correlate of risk analysis showed that IgG antibodies against the gp120 V2 loop inversely correlated with a decreased risk of infection, whereas Env-specific IgA directly correlated with risk.
