Abstract

Myeloid, CD1a-sorted dendritic cells (MDC) productively replicated human immunodeficiency virus strains encoding envelope genes of either primary X4R5 or R5 strains for up to 45 days. Cell-free supernatant collected from long-term infected MDC, which had been exposed to an X4R5 virus 45 days earlier, was still infectious when placed over activated T cells. These data imply that DC can act as a persistent reservoir of infectious virus.
