Human immunodeficiency virus type-1 envelope glycoprotein gp120 induces expression of fusion regulatory protein (FRP)-1/CD98 on CD4+ T cells: a possible regulatory mechanism of HIV-induced syncytium formation



Human immunodeficiency virus type-1 envelope glycoprotein gp120 induces expression of fusion regulatory protein (FRP)-1/CD98 on CD4+ T cells: a possible regulatory mechanism of HIV-induced syncytium formation



Medical Microbiology and Immunology 185(4): 237-243



Recent evidence suggests chemokine receptors function as fusion cofactors. It was previously found by these authors that fusion regulatory protein (FRP)-1/ CD98 is involved in syncytium formation of HIV gp160-expressing U2ME-7 cells and TALL-1 cells persistently infected with HIV. However, resting lymphocytes were found to express no FRP-1 molecule.
