" Mechanisms Underlying HIV-1 Restriction in Myeloid Cells"

Host: Jian Zhu

Seminar Abstract: Myeloid cells, including monocytes, dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages, play a critical role in innate immunity against viral infection. DCs are essential for the induction and control of adaptive immunity, which are exploited by HIV to facilitate viral dissemination. Conversely, DCs have restriction mechanisms that inhibit HIV replication. My laboratory studies this unique interaction between DCs and HIV to better understand viral transmission and evasion of viral immunity. This seminar will discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms that inhibit HIV replication in human myeloid cells, specifically focusing on functions of the host protein SAMHD1 and its role in innate immunity.
