It is interesting to note that recent studies of HIV-1 subtype C suggest that this subtype displays a preferential use of CCR5 (121), maintains a higher viral load compared with cocirculating subtypes (128), and exhibits an apparent increase in TNF responsiveness (36,124,129); a comparative structure analysis is shown in Figure 5. However, because African individuals appear to have increased activation markers compared to European individuals (130), the predominant use of CCR5 in vivo is likely complicated by an immune-activated upregulation of CCR5 on cell surfaces that creates more target cells for infection, not solely by any intrinsic property of the virus.

ASSEMBLY AND PROCESSING OF VIRAL PROTEINS HIV-1 Replication The HIV-1 life cycle can be viewed as a regulated sequential process that requires both viral and cellular proteins (Figure 4). The infection process can be viewed as beginning when SU envelope (Env) glycoprotein binds to the CD4 molecule on host cells and interacts with coreceptor. Following receptor binding, a THE MOLECULAR VIROLOGY OF HIV-1 fusion event, mediated by the gp41 TM protein, occurs between the viral and cellular lipid bilayer and results in the release of the viral core into the cytoplasm.
