Tat binding protein 1(TBP-1)-interacting protein (TBPIP)
This family consists of several eukaryotic TBP-1 interacting protein (TBPIP) sequences. TBP-1 has been demonstrated to interact with the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) viral protein Tat, then modulate the essential replication process of HIV. In addition, TBP-1 has been shown to be a component of the 26S proteasome, a basic multiprotein complex that degrades ubiquitinated proteins in an ATP-dependent fashion. Human TBPIP interacts with human TBP-1 then modulates the inhibitory action of human TBP-1 on HIV-Tat-mediated transactivation.
