The T-cell receptor (TCR) CDR3 length heterogeneity is formed during recombination of individual Vbeta gene families. We hypothesized that CDR3 length diversity could be used to assess the(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 infection perturbs the T-cell receptor (TCR) Vbeta repertoire. The TCR CDR3 length diversity of individual Vbeta families was examined within CD45RA and(More)
HIV-1 infection alters expression of CCR5 and CXCR4 on CD4 T cells in adults, although an effect by virus on expression of coreceptor genes in pediatric subjects is unknown. We designed an(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 disrupts the T cell receptor (TCR) variable region (V) beta repertoire in CD8 T cells by impairing thymic capacity and skewing postthymic cellular(More)
