In this pathway, the viral integration machinery uses a site within the viral DNA as an integration target. This results in a covalent rearrangment of the viral DNA. The resulting DNA forms are not substrates for integration.
It has been suggested that the cellular BAF protein binds to viral DNA and diminishes autointegration by coating and condensing the viral DNA, thereby making it a less efficient integration target.
