Researchers in a range of medical and biological sciences synthesize the current understanding of how the three human retroviruses replicate; the viruses are Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Human T-cell Leukemia Virus (HTLV), and various endogenous human retroviruses. The topics include the role of hematopoietic progenitor cells in retroviral pathogenesis, applying proteomics to study the pathogenesis and enhance diagnosis of HTLV-1, cellular factors involved in HIV-1 RNA transport, syncyins in normal and pathological placentas, non-human primates in HIV-1 research, retrovirus restriction factors, and HIV-1 interactions with small RNA induced silencing mechanisms.
