Visna-maedi virus induces in sheep an interstitial lung disease characterised by an accumulation of smooth muscle cells (SMC) or myomatosis. Infection by HIV-1 has been recently associated with disorders of the vessel-derived cells: primary pulmonary hypertension, coronary artery disease and smooth muscle tumors in humans. We hypothesized that, besides their regular targets (i.e. macrophages and lymphocytes), lentiviruses could infect smooth muscle cells. Smooth muscle cell cultures derived… CONTINUE READING
