Differential replication of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 in CD8- and CD8+ subsets of natural killer cells: relationship to cytokine production pattern.


CD8+ and CD8- subsets of peripheral blood natural killer (NK) cells were examined for susceptibility to infection with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and for the ability to produce various types of interferon (IFN) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF). HIV-1 was preferentially grown in CD8+ NK cells. The ability of CD8- NK cells to suppress HIV-1… (More)
