DC are thus able to efficiently transport HIV to lymphoid organs, facilitating infection of CD4ϩ T cells and viral dissemination. DC also express several different chemokine receptors that can be used as HIV coreceptors for entry (61,527,528). Although the frequency of HIV-infected DC in vivo may be low, these cells nevertheless may represent an important viral reservoir. , DC resident in the epidermis) may be dependent on viral subtype (529). This finding could in part explain the differences in the global epidemiology of HIV infection; an HIV subtype that can replicate well in Langerhans cells, likely a major cell type involved in the initiation of viral infection through mucosal contact (108), may be more efficiently transmitted heterosexually.

A wide array of immune system deficits are associated with HIV infection; abnormalities in the function of all limbs of the immune system, including T and B lymphocytes, antigen-presenting cells, natural killer cells, and neutrophils, have been described. CD4؉ T Cells CD4ϩ T cell dysfunction and depletion are hallmarks of HIV disease. The proximate cause of the susceptibility to opportunistic infections observed with advancing disease is the defects in T-cell number and function that result directly or indirectly from HIV infection.
