To further delineate the possibility for an HIV infection of cartilage cells the susceptibility and permissivity of normal human chondrocytes to HIV-1 was assessed in culture. Isolated cartilage cells were incubated during 30 days with the HIV, testing the production of viral p24 antigens and the formation of particle-bound reverse transcriptase (RT) in the… CONTINUE READING
