Ey were believed to mainly serve as adhesion molecules. However,CD96 Expression during HIV-1 Infectionall members of this group have now been associated with enhancing or influencing lymphocyte functions [10,11,12,13,14]. CD155, also called poliovirus receptor or Necl-5, is the ligand for CD96, CD226 and TIGIT. CD226 ML 281 site interaction with CD155 is involved in the cytolytic function for both NK cells and T cells [13,15]. Furthermore, there is a functional link between CD226 and lymphocyte function-associated antigen 1 (LFA-1), where CD226 acts as a LFA-mediated co-stimulatory molecule and have been suggested to be involved in the regulation of T cell activation [11,16]. More recent studies also show that TIGIT, which has an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM), function as a T cell inhibitor [17]. In contrast to these receptors, CD96 function is not well characterized. Although CD96 also contains an ITIM, interactions between CD96 and CD155 result in enhanced NK cell cytotoxicity [12]. However, the functional role of CD96 on T cells still remains to be determined. Apart from morphological changes in infected cells, surface receptors with adhesive and immunoregulatory functions, including the IgG superfamily, expressed on bystander cells could also potentially be affected by HIV-1-induced chronic immune activation and inflammatory responses. The consequences of a modified ability to form a stable interaction with a target cell or an antigen-presenting cell, or 25837696 changes in immune regulation could thereby render cells either incapable of responding optimally to pathogens or provide a mechanism 1317923 for hyperactivity. Either outcome would have detrimental effects during HIV-1 infection. Considering that chronic diseaseassociated alteration in CD96 has already been observed during Hepatitis B infection [18], we aimed to investigate changes in expression of CD96 during HIV-1 infection, a receptor with potential importance for effector functions. Our data provide further support that CD96 expression is closely related to chronic infection and disease progression and signify an additional measure of cell function capacity that may prove useful for monitoring of HIV-1 related pathogenesis.conjugated anti-HLA-DR (clone L243 (G46-6)), PE-Cy7-conjugated anti-CD38 (clone HB7), Pacific Blue (PB)-conjugated antiCD3 (clone UCHT1), allophycocyanin-Cy7 (APC-Cy7)-conjugated anti-CD4 (clone SK3), (all from BD Biosciences, San Jose, CA), Qdot 605-conjugated anti-CD8 (clone 3B5; Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA), PE-Texas Red, (ECD)-conjugated anti-CD28 (clone CD28.2; Beckman Coulter, Brea, CA), Alexa700-conjugated anti-CD45RA (clone HI100; BioLegend, San Diego, CA), Alexa647-conjugated anti-CD226 (clone DX11; BioLegend) and PE-conjugated antiCD96 (clone NK92.39; eBioscience, San Diego CA).
