Abstract

Retroviral infection triggers the cytoplasmic translocation of two Crm1-dependent shuttle factors, namely the Ini1 (integrase interactor 1, hSNF5) and the promyelocytic leukemia (PML) protein. Blocking nuclear export of shuttle factors by leptomycin B increases the efficiency of retroviral integration, suggesting that some may mediate antiviral activity. While PML was shown to counteract proviral establishment, it remained unclear whether Ini1, a protein implicated in various processes during human immunodeficiency virus replication, has the same potential. Employing RNA interference-mediated knock-down of Ini1, we show here that the simultaneous accumulation of both proteins in the cytoplasm likely reflects two non-interdependent phenomena. Furthermore, Ini1 does not interfere with retroviral integration, as cells lacking Ini1 show no increased infection susceptibility.
