Intracellular calcium release induced by human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) surface envelope glycoprotein in human intestinal epithelial cells: a putative mechanism for HIV-1 enteropathy.

Abstract

Intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) was measured in single human epithelial intestinal HT-29-D4 cells with the Ca2+ probe Fura-2 and digital imaging microscopy. Treatment of these cells with HIV-1 surface envelope glycoprotein gp120 (or a soluble form of its precursor gp160) induced an important increase of [Ca2+]i. This effect was abolished by preincubation of… (More)
