Tumour necrosis factors (alpha, beta) induced by HIV-1 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells potentiate virus replication.

Abstract:

Cytokines such as tumour necrosis factor (TNF) can induce HIV-1 production in T-cell tumour lines. However, it is not known if the same occurs in freshly isolated mononuclear cells, nor is it known if the virus can itself regulate cellular cytokine production. In this paper we report that HIV-1 induces peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and CD4+ T lymphocytes to secrete TNF alpha, TNF beta and interferon-gamma (IFN gamma), three cytokines having multifunctional activities and complex p...
