(Redirected to Pre-integration complex article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The pre-integration complex (PIC) is generally composed of the viral genetic material and associated proteins (viral and host) after release into the cell. In HIV, this includes the viral core which surrounds the RNA. This complex is responsible for reverse transcription of the viral RNA genome into dsDNA and prepares it for retroviral integration into the host DNA within the nucleus.[1]
