NK cells mediate the innate immune response, and HIV-infected individuals demonstrate altered NK cell phenotype and function. We find that CD4+ NK cells are susceptible to HIV infection; this could account for the NK cell dysfunction seen in HIV-infected individuals. CD4+ NK cells express CXCR4 and can be infected with X4-tropic viruses and some primary(More)
NK cells play an important role in the innate immune response. We have isolated NK cells from human lymphoid tissues and found that these cells express the CD4 molecule on their surface at levels higher than those found on peripheral blood NK cells. To study the functional role of the CD4 molecule on NK cells, we developed an in vitro system by which we are(More)
