    Vaccination against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection requires candidate antigen(s) (Ag) capable of inducing an effective, broad, and long-lasting immune response against HIV-1 despite mutation events leading to differences in virus clades. The HIV-1 Tat protein is more conserved...

    Evolution to AIDS is characterized by a progressive cellular immune suppression. Although there is substantial evidence for several mechanisms involved in disrupting the immune response by induction of apoptosis in responder cells by contact with infected cells, we propose that humoral factors...

    The identification of optimal antigens to include in an HIV vaccine designed to elicit a cellular immune response requires careful consideration of protein length, variability, and immunogenicity. Here, we have examined the relationship of these parameters in a cohort of HIV-infected subjects....

    The 14-kDa HIV-1 accessory gene vpr has been reported to have effects on host cell biology. These activities include inhibition of cell proliferation, inhibition of NF-κB activation, inhibition of CD4 T-cell proliferation, and induction of apoptosis in tissue culture. This collection of...

    Abstract: Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 (SOCS1) is a recently identified host factor that positively regulates the intracellular trafficking and stability of HIV-1 Gag. We here examine the molecular mechanism by which SOCS1 regulates intercellular Gag trafficking and virus particle...

    The HIV-1 regulatory proteins Tat and Rev and the accessory proteins Vpr, Vpu and Vif are essential for efficient viral replication, and their cytoplasmic production suggests that they should be processed for recognition by cytotoxic T lymphocytes. However, only limited data is available,...
