Unravelling HIV-1 latency, one cell at a time


Kok, Yik Lim; Ciuffi, Angela; Metzner, Karin J (2017). Unravelling HIV-1 latency, one cell at a time. Trends in Microbiology:Epub ahead of print.

Abstract

A single virus is capable of infecting and replicating in a single cell. Recent advances across single-cell omics technologies - genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, epitranscriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics - will offer unprecedented opportunities to gain more insights into the various aspects of the life cycle of viruses and their impact on the host cell. Here, using the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) as an example, we summarize the current knowledge and the future potential of single-cell omics in the investigation of an important aspect of the life cycle of HIV-1 that represents a major hurdle in achieving viral eradication, HIV-1 latency.
