The frequency of α₄β₇(high) memory CD4⁺ T cells correlates with susceptibility to rectal simian immunodeficiency virus infection.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Integrin α₄β₇(high) (α₄β₇(high)) mediates the homing of CD4⁺ T cells to gut-associated lymphoid tissues, which constitute a highly favorable environment for HIV expansion and dissemination. HIV and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) envelope proteins bind to and signal through α₄β₇(high) and during acute infection SIV preferentially infects… (More)
