group antigens form the viral core structure, RNA genome binding
proteins, and are the major proteins comprising the nucleoprotein
core particle. Reverse transcriptase is the essential enzyme
that carries out the reverse transcription process that take
the RNA genome to a double-stranded DNA preintegrate form.
The molecular gymnastics of the latter process are outlined
below. The reverse transcriptase gene also encodes an Integrase
activity and an RNase H activity that functions during genome
