Graphical Abstract:


Uracil-DNA glycosylase-2 (UNG2) is a DNA repair protein that removes uracil from single and double-stranded DNA through a basic excision repair process. UNG2 is packaged into new virions by interaction with integrase (IN) and is needed during the early stages of the replication cycle. UNG2 appears to play both a positive and negative role during HIV-1 replication; UNG2 improves the fidelity of reverse transcription but the nuclear isoform of UNG2 participates in the degradation of cDNA and the persistence of the cellular genome by repairing its uracil mismatches. In addition, UNG2 is neutralized by Vpr, which redirects it to the proteasome for degradation, suggesting that UNG2 may be a new cellular restriction factor. So far, we have not understood why HIV-1 imports UNG2 via its IN and why it causes degradation of endogenous UNG2 by redirecting it to the proteasome via Vpr. In this review, we propose to discuss the ambiguous role of UNG2 during the HIV-1 replication cycle.

Keywords: HIV-1, UNG2, Vpr, replication, BER, UDGs, uracil.
