Long Terminal Repeat Sequence (Ltr):

The genetic material at each end of the HIV genome. When the HIV genome is integrated into a cell's own genome, the LTR interacts with cellular and viral factors to trigger the transcription of the HIV-integrated HIV DNA genes into an RNA form that is packaged in new virus particles. Activation of LTR is a major step in triggering HIV replication.
