The semi-conserved domain of V3 of HIV-1 was synthesised in a lipopeptide form to be presented on the surface of liposome particles. Composite liposomes were constructed with entrapped tetanus toxoid as a recall antigen (lipo-V3/TT liposomes) to study the influence of V3 on effector T cells of human normal peripheral lymphocyte populations. We demonstrated(More)
We have reported that the principal neutralizing domain of V3 of the HIV-1 gp120 induces an antigen-specific activation apoptosis of responding effector CD4+ T lymphocytes, a phenomenon inhibited by RANTES, an agonist of CCR5. Here, addressing the question of how a hypervariable region could induce such a selective reaction, we demonstrated that the(More)
