Abstract

Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) increases human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) acquisition and transmission via unclear mechanisms. Herpesvirus entry mediator (HVEM), an HSV-2 entry receptor, is highly expressed on HIV-1 target cells (CD4 T cells) and may be incorporated into HIV-1 virions, while HSV-2 glycoproteins can be present on the infected cell surface. Since HVEM–gD interaction together with gB/gH/gL is essential for HSV-2 entry, HVEM-bearing HIV-1 (HIV-1/HVEM) may enter HSV-2-infected cells through such interactions. To test this hypothesis, we first confirmed the presence of HVEM on HIV-1 virions and glycoproteins on the HSV-2-infected cell surface. Additional studies showed that HIV-1/HVEM bound to the HSV-2-infected cell surface in an HSV-2 infection-time-dependent manner via HVEM–gD interaction. HIV-1/HVEM entry of HSV-2-infected cells was dependent on HVEM–gD interaction and the presence of gB/gH/gL, and was inhibited by azidothymidine. Furthermore, peripheral blood mononuclear cell-derived HIV-1 infected HSV-2-infected primary foreskin epithelial cells and the infection was inhibited by anti-HVEM/gD antibodies. Together, our results indicate that HIV-1 produced from CD4 T cells bears HSV-2 receptor HVEM and can bind to and enter HSV-2-infected epithelial cells depending on HVEM–gD interaction and the presence of gB/gH/gL. Our findings provide a potential new mechanism underlying HSV-2 infection-enhanced HIV-1 mucosal transmission and may shed light on HIV-1 prevention.
