Human immunodeficiency virus isolates express a Nef protein with either an alanine or a threonine at amino acid residue 15. The threonine residue is a site for phosphorylation by protein kinase C. Jurkat T cells constitutively expressing the alanine variant of Nef exhibit the ability to downregulate the induction of transcription factors NF-kB and AP-1. In contrast, Jurkat cells with the threonine variant of Nef are at least partially restored in their ability to recruit NF-kB and AP-1.
