Activated CD4+ cells make more viral proteins by copying the DNA back to RNA. This step is called transcription and is controlled by both viral and host cell factors. This messenger RNA (mRNA) is transported back to the cytoplasm to be used as a template to make more viral proteins. This step is called translation. At this point the protein sequence of mRNA is changed back into the molecules that form envelope and core proteins. The enzyme that splices these large proteins into smaller functional proteins is called protease. This step can be prevented by protease inhibitors (PIs). HIV-2 carries many of the mutations that confer PI resistance, thus limiting PI activity.
