TRIM5α and HIV-1 CA proteins were purified, and recombinant TRIM5α/CA complexes were prepared as described (7, 8). For this study, we used TRIM5α from African green monkey because this variant is active against HIV-1 and efficiently assembles into hexagonal lattices in vitro (7). The recombinant TRIM5α protein contained an L81F mutation in the RING domain that allows in vitro coassembly with HIV-1 CA more efficiently than wild type and does not affect the ubiquitination activity of the RING domain or overall restriction activity of the protein.
