Identification of Nitrated Immunoglobulin Variable Regions in the HIV-Infected Human Brain: Implications in HIV Infection and Immune Response


HIV can infiltrate the brain and lead to HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND). The pathophysiology of HAND is poorly understood, and there are no diagnostic biomarkers for it. Previously, an increase in inducible nitric oxide synthase levels and protein tyrosine nitration in the brain were found to correlate with the severity of HAND.1,2 In this… (More)
