  • Slide 1
  • The Pathophysiology of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome by Human Immunodeficiency Virus Brandon Toy Mississippi College Graduate Seminar
  • Slide 2
  • Virus Classification Group VI Virus All use virally encoded RNA-Dependent DNA Polymerase Reverse Transcriptase Family: Retroviridae Enveloped virus Contains single-stranded RNA Stores nucleic acid in mRNA genome Positive Sense RNA Genus: Lentivirus Longer incubation period HIV-1 & HIV-2
  • Slide 3
  • Slide 4
  • Attachment Where does it attach? Virus attaches to the immune system cell, the dendritic cell found in the mucosal areas Transported by the lymphatic system to lymph nodes where other cells become infected Replication occurs primarily in activated CD4+ T Lymphocytes and to lesser extent in macrophages and dendritic cells
  • Slide 5
  • Attachment Receptor Binding Receptor Bindings The two major glycoproteins involved with HIV receptors are gp120 and gp41 gp120 Binds to CD4 receptor Conformational change occurs and binding occurs to CCR5 or CXCR4 Cytokine Receptor CCR5 T cells and Monocytes Most important co-receptor CXC Chemokine Receptor Integral Membrane Protein Bind and respond to chemokines G Protein Receptor, 7-TMD CXCR4 known as fusin HIV predominantly T-Cells
  • Slide 6
  • Attachment Chemokine binding causes gp120 to move and gp41 to bind gp41 Hydrophobic HR1 binds to membrane and HR2 zips into the groves of H1, pulling the virus closer, forming a large pore for the virus to enter Extremely stable bond
  • Slide 7
  • Attachment Viral nuclear capsid enters the host cell 3 enzymes, 2 RNA strands are released Protease Cleaves protein strands into their smaller, active form Integrase carries viral DNA into the nucleus and integrates dsDNA into host DNA Reverse Transcriptase transcribes viral RNA into viral dsDNA
  • Slide 8
  • Replication/Transcription Once the virus inside, the cell replicates virus Reverse Transcription Causes the most mutations leading to resistance Primary genes are p51 & p66 Finger, palm, thumb region protein structure Must be in closed form to transcribe Two Primary Active Sites Polymerase active site transcribes RNA/DNA double helix from viral RNA Ribonuclease H active site breaks down the RNA and DNA Polymerase completes the double stranded replication forming double stranded DNA
  • Slide 9
  • Integration Preintegration Complex Viral dsDNA imported into cell nucleus through the nuclear pore Contains both viral and cellular proteins Integrase and other cofactors used Integrase cleaves dinucleotides from 3 end and forms sticky ends Integrase carries into the host nucleus and sticks into host DNA Host polymerase fils in complementary base pairs 3 OH group of 5 phosphorous Magnesium ions hydrolyze 3 end exposing new OH groups 5 bp apart, nicks DNA Host ligase and other cellular enzymes repair the single gaps Two unpaired nucleotides at the 5 ends of viral DNA removed Integrated DNA known as proviral DNA
  • Slide 10
  • Integrase Protein Cleavage of 3 sticky ends Integrase Carrying DNA into host nucleus
  • Slide 11
  • T-Cell Ribosomal Transcription Activation of the infected cell will cause transcription of pro- viral DNA into viral mRNA Ribosomes at the rough endoplasmic reticulum synthesize HIV envelope proteins first which are directed to the host membrane The same ribosomes build the poly protein chains that contain a total of two RNA viral strands per virus
  • Slide 12
  • Integration Protease cleaves larger proteins into smaller core proteins Protease cleaves the poly-protein strand and the interior structures Env Pol Gag
  • Slide 13
  • Genetics Env genes encode the precursor 160 140 kDa glycoproteins cleaved into gp160 and gp 140 respectively. Nucleocapsid proteins formed P24 capsid protein P17 matrix protein P7 nuclear protein Pol genes code for the viral enzymes (polymerase reverse transcriptase, integrase, protease) Precursor protein cleaved into P31 P51 p66 Gag genes code for the cone shaped viral capsid
  • Slide 14
  • Genetics Other genes include Tat Influences function of genes distance away. Controls transactivation of HIV protein Rev Regulates expression of virus protein Vif virus infectivity factor gene; Required for infectivity as cell- free virus Nef Regulator that attenuates HIV replication Vpr R gene. Has an undetermined function
  • Slide 15
  • Genetic Classification of HIV HIV-1 Vpu gene U gene required for efficient viral replication and release Only found in HIV-1 HIV-2 VpX gene has an undetermined function Only found in HIV and SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus)
  • Slide 16
  • Formation Two viral RNA strands and the replication enzymes are surrounded by the smaller core proteins. Final assembling around them forming the capsid Once complete, the virus leaves Obtains part of the host membrane for cell recognition Leaves as an immature virus Matures after leaving cell
  • Slide 17
  • Initial Body Response Acute Illness Viral load increases and CD4 cells drop Can test for p24 antigen or HIV-RNA Host develops HIV antibodies A newborn less than 18 months old will have mothers antibodies so any test would be inaccurate Seroconvert
  • Slide 18
  • Initial Immune Response Returns to the viral set point Several million virus particles per mL of blood will cause a drop in CD4 cell count CD8 killer T cells destroy the virus and HIV infected cells May also produced b-chemokine that competitively inhibit HIV attachment and down-regulate the HIV co-receptor and chemokine receptor proteins (Kinter et al. 1998; Saha et. al, 1998)
  • Slide 19
  • Clinical Latency Latent period Chronic phases can occur. Basically an asymptomatic HIV infection Viral replication continues to occur during latent period, continual replication still occurs Period can last for several years
  • Slide 20
  • Constitutive Period Towards the end of the latent period, viral load will increase. Massive increase in viral load will cause a complete elimination of CD4 cells Will lose the ability to regenerate new T-cells Resources of the T-cells have been overtaken by the synthesis of HIV Cell cannot develop its own required proteins
  • Slide 21
  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome CD4 T cell count below 200/uL Average, healthy CD4 T-Cell Count between 500-1500/uL High Viral Load Opportunistic Infections Due to Attenuated Immune System Tuberculosis AIDS Dementia Complex AIDS Wasting Syndrome Hepatitis A & B Pneumocystis Pneumonia Cytomegalovirus Vision Loss Cancer risks less than 500/uL Kaposils Sarcoma Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
  • Slide 22
  • Clinical Tests ELISA & Simple/Rapid Tests Detects anti-HIV antibodies Gp120 antibodies present in all infected patients Western Blot Assay Nucleic Acid and Antigen Screen Tests Viral Load Test Low viral load below 10,000 copies High viral load more than 10,000 copies
  • Slide 23
  • Pharmacology Fusion inhibitors Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors Integrase Inhibitors Protease Inhibitors
  • Slide 24
  • Fusion Inhibitors Three gp120 subunits mediate receptor and co-receptor attachment Three gp41 subunits response for membrane fusion Receptor antagonists prevent gp120 attachment to the receptor and co-receptors gp41 conformation can be inhibited Enfurvitide Only approved fusion inhibitor Peptide based Competitively binds to gp41 and blocks the formation of the post- fusion structure Several other gp41 & gp120 inhibitors are being developed
  • Slide 25
