Close relationship of CCR5 sequences among simians a , Phylogenetic trees. The larger tree uses Danio rerio CCR5 as an outgroup while the smaller inset tree uses two Lemur species. Bootstrap support is included at each node; branch lengths are provided where appropriate. The low bootstrap values between some clades are indicative of the very small number of phylogenetically informative bases and high propensity of invariant bases. b , Sequence alignment of CCR5 coding sequences. The portion of the CCR5 coding sequence alignment containing the –1 PRF signal is shown from the seaview sequence editor. In total, these 45 species were trimmed to 7,000 bases each and comprise 827 complete sites, of which 241 are invariant and 586 were informative for phylogenetic analyses. Danio rerio (at bottom) provides an outgroup; when considering the conservation of the region surrounding the –1 PRF signal at position 408, it was removed. This results in 170 sites, of which 69 are invariant, and 58 informative. With the exception of the Lemur, the –1 PRF region is strikingly conserved among primates.

Transcription is driven from the SV40 early enhancer/promoter and transcription termination and polyadenylation utilizes the SV40 late poly(A) signal. The in-frame control is p2luci, encoding a firefly/ Renilla luciferase fusion protein. In the out of frame reporter (OOF), firefly luciferase lies in the –1 reading frame with respect to the Renilla open reading frame.

The CCR5 –1 PRF reporter is the same, except that it contains the CCR5 –1 PRF signal. In the CCR5 slip site mutant (SSM), the UUUAAAA slippery heptamer of the CCR5 –1 PRF signal was mutated to GCGCGCG.

    Dual-luciferase reporters, frameshifting data from other cell types, and frameshift peptide LC-MS/MS sequencing data a , Schematic of dual-luciferase constructs used to test the CCR5 frameshifting signal. Transcription is driven from the SV40 early enhancer/promoter and transcription termination and polyadenylation utilizes the SV40 late poly(A) signal. The in-frame control is p2luci, encoding a firefly/ Renilla luciferase fusion protein. In the out of frame reporter (OOF), firefly luciferase lies in the –1 reading frame with respect to the Renilla open reading frame. In the HIV –1 PRF reporter, the –1 PRF signal of HIV-1 was cloned in between the two luciferase reporters, and the firefly ORF is in the –1 frame with respect to Renilla . The CCR5 –1 PRF reporter is the same, except that it contains the CCR5 –1 PRF signal. In the CCR5 slip site mutant (SSM), the UUUAAAA slippery heptamer of the CCR5 –1 PRF signal was mutated to GCGCGCG. The PTC reporter is based on the CCR5 –1 PRF reporter in which a premature termination codon was inserted following the Renilla open reading frame. b , Efficient –1 PRF promoted by the CCR5 sequence in CHO and Vero cells. Error bars denote standard error. c , d , LC-MS/MS analysis of the CCR5/β-Gal –1 PRF fusion protein. c , Primary amino acid sequence of the predicted fusion protein. Matched peptides are shown in bold red. Leader sequence is highlighted in cyan. CCR5 0-frame sequence is yellow, and CCR5 –1 frame peptide is highlighted in green. Non-highlighted sequence is β-galactosidase. d , Partial list of matching peptides identified by MS/MS analysis. Highlighted sequences show MSMS spectra of TSRIPVVHAVFALKSQ (2–17) and of TSRIPVVHAVFALKSQDGHLWGG (2–24) with N-terminal acetylation.

    Close relationship of CCR5 sequences among simians a , Phylogenetic trees. The larger tree uses Danio rerio CCR5 as an outgroup while the smaller inset tree uses two Lemur species. Bootstrap support is included at each node; branch lengths are provided where appropriate. The low bootstrap values between some clades are indicative of the very small number of phylogenetically informative bases and high propensity of invariant bases. b , Sequence alignment of CCR5 coding sequences. The portion of the CCR5 coding sequence alignment containing the –1 PRF signal is shown from the seaview sequence editor. In total, these 45 species were trimmed to 7,000 bases each and comprise 827 complete sites, of which 241 are invariant and 586 were informative for phylogenetic analyses. Danio rerio (at bottom) provides an outgroup; when considering the conservation of the region surrounding the –1 PRF signal at position 408, it was removed. This results in 170 sites, of which 69 are invariant, and 58 informative. With the exception of the Lemur, the –1 PRF region is strikingly conserved among primates.
