Endothelial cells are now considered as potential targets for HIV infection, together with other non-lymphoid cells. We previously demonstrated that endothelial cells isolated from the human liver sinusoids (SEC) are permissive for HIV1 in vitro (Steffan et al., 1992), whereas human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) do not allow replication of seven HIV1 and HIV2 strains under the same infection conditions (Lafon et al., 1992). The aim of our work was to compare the permissiveness of SEC… CONTINUE READING
