Abstract

A human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1-infected Hut-78 cell clone (F12) shows a peculiar phenotype: it exhibits an altered viral protein pattern, is a non-producer and is resistant to homologous superinfection. To determine whether this phenotype is dependent upon the expression of the HIV-1 genome integrated therein, the I/I F12 provirus [deprived of HIV long terminal repeats (LTRs)] was cloned and inserted in the pLj retroviral vector bearing the neomycin () and Geneticin resistance gene. CD4 HIV-susceptible CEMss cells (a CEM clone able to form large syncytia 2 to 3 days post-HIV infection) were infected with the recombinant retroviruses rescued from the F12/HIV-pLj-transfected (in either sense or antisense orientation) amphotropic packaging cells PA317. sense resistant gene clones showed approximately 10 copies of viral DNA/cell (without detectable major deletions) only in episomal form, low viral RNA expression and a viral protein pattern characterized by an uncleaved gp160, no gp41 and little, if any, p55 precursor (as in F12 cells). Superinfection of these F12/HIV DNA-engineered clones with HIV-1 resulted in a significant reduction in the yield of superinfecting HIV. This effect (more pronounced when the clones were maintained under selective pressure) was observed in all five retrovirus-infected clones exhibiting the presence and expression of sense episomal F12/HIV DNA but not in two clones bearing an antisense F12/HIV DNA or in one clone bearing only the pLj vector. These results indicate that bio-engineered human CD4 cells expressing the F12/HIV genome exhibit a significant resistance to HIV superinfection.
