Day 179 (Xq26.1-Xq26.3): a protein that helps HIV


Day 179 has 62 protein-coding genes (browser view) including HTATSF1 (HIV Tat-specific factor 1).

HTATSF1 is named after its role in helping HIV once it invades a cellĀ – which was how it was discovered – but this name is misleading, because it is a human protein with a normal role in transcription. Like many human proteins, it is co-opted by viruses.
