G protein-coupled receptors in HIV and SIV entry: new perspectives on lentivirus-host interactions and on the utility of animal models.


Entry of primate lentiviruses into target cells has recently been shown to depend upon the interaction of the viral envelope glycoprotein with CD4 and one or more members of the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) family of transmembrane proteins. In vivo, the transmission of HIV-1 infection generally requires viral strains that utilise chemokine recep- tor… (More)
