Macrophages contribute to HIV-1 pathogenesis by forming a viral reservoir and mediating neurological disorders. Cell-free HIV-1 infection of macrophages is inefficient, in part due to low plasma membrane expression of viral entry receptors. We find that macrophages selectively capture and engulf HIV-1-infected CD4+ T cells leading to efficient macrophage(More)
The hallmark of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are multiple dermal neurofibromas. They show high inter- and intrafamilial variability for which the influence of modifying genes is discussed. NF1 patients presenting microdeletions spanning NF1 and several contiguous genes have an earlier onset and higher number of dermal neurofibromas than classical NF1(More)
