Glycosphingolipids from human erythrocytes mediate CD4-dependent fusion with cells expressing human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) envelope glycoproteins. To identify the glycosphingolipid(s)(More)
The metabolism of glycosphingolipids (GSL) has been investigated in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from 8 patients at an early stage of HIV-1 infection. Following metabolic labeling of(More)
The fusion of HIV-1 with CD4+ cells involves, in addition to CD4, specific cell surface molecules acting as fusion cofactors. Recently, we reported that the V3 loop of HIV-1 gp120 binds to GM3, a(More)
Galactosylceramide (GalCer) is a glycosphingolipid (GSL) receptor that allows HIV-1 infection of CD4-negative cells from neural and intestinal tissues. A water-soluble analogue of GalCer that(More)
