"Alterations in the expression of CXCR4 and CCR5, the co-receptors for HIV entry, may be associated with susceptibility of monocytic cells to HIV infection. Interferon (IFN)-gamma has been shown to inhibit HIV replication in monocytic cells, but the molecular mechanism involved is not well understood.
"To determine if IFN-gamma regulates HIV replication by altering CXCR-4/CCR-5 expression and hence virus entry into monocytic cells, we investigated the effects of IFN-gamma on CXCR-4 and CCR-5 expression and its biological implications with respect to HIV entry, replication...
