In the study, T cells, the major cell type targeted by HIV, were isolated from donated human blood and hundreds of genes were knocked out using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing. The “knock-out” cells were then infected with HIV and analysed. The researchers found 86 genes that may play a role in the way HIV replicates and causes disease, including over 40 that have never been looked at in the context of HIV infection. The study highlights a new way of understanding how HIV integrates into our DNA and establishes a chronic infection, leading towards new treatments.
