Presence and cellular distribution of HIV in the testes of seropositive subjects: an evaluation by in situ PCR hybridization.

Abstract

Cellular distribution of HIV-1 proviral DNA has been studied, by in situ PCR hybridization, in the testes of infected men who died at various stages of the disease. In seropositive asymptomatic subjects, HIV-1 proviral DNA was present in the nuclei of germ cells at all stages of their differentiation. The presence of provirus did not induce germ cell damage… (More)
