Abstract HIV-1 deleted for the vif accessory gene encapsidates the cellular cytidine deaminase APOBEC3G. Upon infection, the encapsidated APOBEC3G induces G-->A mutations in the viral reverse transcripts. The G-->A mutations result either from C-->U deamination of the minus strand or deamination of both strands followed by repair of the plus strand. We report here that minus-strand deamination occurred over the length of the virus genome, preferentially at CCCA sequences, with a graded frequency in the 5'-->3' direction. APOBEC3G induced previously undetected C-->T mutations in the 5' U3 and the primer-binding site, both of which become transiently single-stranded during reverse transcription. In vitro, APOBEC3G bound and deaminated single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) but not double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) or DNA-RNA hybrids. We propose that the requirement for ssDNA accounts for the minus-strand mutations, the 5'-->3' graded frequency of deamination and the rare C-->T mutations.
