Functional analysis of novel SLC11A1 (NRAMP1) promoter variants in susceptibility to HIV-1
(BMJ Publishing Group, 2004-04)
The divalent cation transporter is the natural resistance associated macrophage protein 1 (formerly NRAMP1 and now named SLC11A1) for solute carrier 11A1 (OMIM accession number 600266). The gene that codes for this transporter ...
Ultrasensitive monitoring of HIV-1 viral load by a low-cost real-time reverse transcription-PCR assay with internal control for the 5' long terminal repeat domain
(American Association for Clinical Chemistry, 2006-04)
BACKGROUND: Current HIV-1 viral-load assays are too expensive for resource-limited settings. In some countries, monitoring of antiretroviral therapy is now more expensive than treatment itself. In addition, some commercial ...
HIV-1 viral load assays for resource-limited settings : clades matter
(Public Library of Science Medicine, 2006-12)
The inhibition of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 1 activity by crude and purified human pregnancy plug mucus and mucins in an inhibition assay
(BioMed Central, 2008-05)
Background: The female reproductive tract is amongst the main routes for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) transmission. Cervical mucus however is known to protect the female reproductive tract from bacterial invasion and ...

The role of crude human saliva and purified salivary MUC5B and MUC7 mucins in the inhibition of Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 1 in an inhibition assay
(BioMed Central, 2006-11)
Background: Despite the continuous shedding of HIV infected blood into the oral cavity and the detectable presence of the AIDS virus at a high frequency, human saliva is reported to inhibit oral transmission of HIV through ...
