Triple bypass: complicated paths to HIV escape.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 is highly efficient at evading immune responses and persisting, ultimately causing fatal immunodeficiency in some patients. Mutation in the epitopes recognized by cytolytic CD8+ T cells (CTLs) is one such escape process. A new study now shows that one HIV-1 escape mutation may also result in impaired dendritic cell (DC) activity, possibly impairing later T cell responses to the same and other epitopes. The new data complete our understanding of the me...Expand abstract
