      HIV-1 Capture and Transmission by Dendritic Cells: The Role of Viral Glycolipids and the Cellular Receptor Siglec-1 

      Izquierdo-Useros, Nuria; Lorizate Nogales, Maier; McLaren, Paul J.; Telenti, Amalio; Kräusslich, Hans-Georg; Martinez-Picado, Javier (Public Library Science, 2014-07)
      Dendritic cells (DCs) are essential in order to combat invading viruses and trigger antiviral responses. Paradoxically, in the case of HIV-1, DCs might contribute to viral pathogenesis through trans-infection, a mechanism ...
