A Bayesian network approach to study host and viral genetic correlates of HIV-1 disease progression 

HIV disease progression is very variable among infected patients. Using classical statistical methods based on a selected number of markers, Casado et al [1] identified a number of host and viral genetic correlates for the clinical definitions of HIV-1 disease progression: elite controllers, long t...

Modifications in host cell structure and functions mediated by Tat intracellular expression are greatly dependent on the second exon 

The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) encodes the 110 amino acid-pleiotropic nuclear transcriptional activator Tat that is not only essential for efficient elongation of viral transcripts, but also regulates both cellular protein and gene expression. Tat encoding gene consists of two spli...
