• HIV infection of CD4+ T cells: New insights into innate sensing and host dependency factors 

      Meås, Hany Zakaria (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:261, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      Despite decades of research and public health efforts, HIV/AIDS remains a major global health issue with more than 36 million people infected with the virus in 2016. Effective HIV treatment has enabled HIV infected patients ...

      Meås, Hany Zakaria; Haug, Markus; Beckwith, Marianne Sandvold; Louet, Claire; Ryan, Liv; Hu, Zhenyi; Landskron, Johannes; Nordbø, Svein Arne; Tasken, Kjetil; Yin, Hang; Damås, Jan Kristian; Flo, Trude Helen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      During HIV infection, cell-to-cell transmission results in endosomal uptake of the virus by target CD4+ T cells and potential exposure of the viral ssRNA genome to endosomal Toll-like receptors (TLRs). TLRs are instrumental ...
