    ..We conclude that direct interactions between AIRE, NF-κB, and P-TEFb result in efficient transcription of their target genes. ..

    ..Thus, our visualization of P-TEFb activation by fluorescent complementation assay could be used to find new P-TEFb-releasing agents, compare different classes of agents, and assess their efficacy singly and/or in combination. ..

    ..Regulated release of P-TEFb determines the expression pattern of many of the genes that respond to environmental stimuli and regulate growth, proliferation, and differentiation of cells. ..

    ..Because P-TEFb is required for the transition from initiation to elongation of transcription, this interaction ensures proper expression of AIRE-responsive tissue-specific antigens in the thymus. ..

    ..This study demonstrates for the first time that naturally-occurring Nef peptides can potently block lentiviral processing and infectivity. ..

    ..In contrast, higher levels of CDK11 increased the length of HIV poly(A) tails and the stability of mature viral transcripts. We conclude that CDK11 plays a critical role for the cotranscriptional processing of all HIV mRNA species. ..
