A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The restriction of cell-free HIV-1 infection has been demonstrated in placental trophoblast choriocarcinoma BeWo cells. We tried to determine the level of the viral replication cycle at which this restriction occurs. BeWo cells produce infectious viruses after transfection with HIV-1 plasmids, independently of viral tropism. CCR5 and CXCR4, but not the CD4 molecule, were detected at the cell surface. We therefore derived CD4-expressing clones from transfected BeWo cells. Cell-free virus infection of these clones resulted in neither virus production nor viral sequence integration, indicating that the restriction occurs before integration of the virus. If we used luciferase reporter viruses pseudotyped with HIV-1 Env R5 and X4 for infection, no luciferase activity was detected, even in the BeWo-CD4+ clone, in contrast to what was observed in VSV-G pseudotyped virus infection. Our results show that infection of trophoblast-derived cells with cell-free virus is at least restricted at the level of entry. Thus, BeWo is an interesting human placental cell line that is resistant to HIV-1, even if CD4, CXCR4, and CCR5 are expressed.
