Transcription profiling by array of human CD4+ T cells from HIV-resistant and HIV-susceptible individuals

ABSTRACT: Understanding why some individual resist HIV-1 infection despite continued exposure is an important goal for vaccine development. We compared CD4+ T cell gene expression at baseline in HIV-1 resistant commercial sex-workers from Nairobi, Kenya to HIV-1 high-risk negative (non-resistant) commercial sex-workers using gene expression arrays Experiment Overall Design: CD4+ T cells from both HIV resistant and HIV low-risk negative individuals were isolated from PBMC after 24 hours of culture by negative selection. Total RNA was isolated and gene expression compared using Affymetrix total genome arrays.

HIV‐exposed seronegative commercial sex workers show a quiescent phenotype in the CD4+ T cell compartment and reduced expression of HIV‐dependent host factors.

Studies of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-exposed seronegative individuals are crucial to inform vaccine design. In the present study we demonstrated that HIV-exposed seronegative commercial sex workers produce lower levels of proinflammatory cytokines at baseline than HIV-negative control subjects. We also showed that CD4+ T cells of HIV-exposed seronegative commercial sex workers have a characteristically lower level of gene expression that can be seen in differentially expressed genes and  ...[more]
