CD4-Positive T-Lymphocytes

Introduction: CD4-Positive T-Lymphocytes

Description of CD4-Positive T-Lymphocytes

CD4-Positive T-Lymphocytes: A critical subpopulation of T-lymphocytes involved in the induction of most immunological functions. The HIV virus has selective tropism for the T4 cell which expresses the CD4 phenotypic marker, a receptor for HIV. In fact, the key element in the profound immunosuppression seen in HIV infection is the depletion of this subset of T-lymphocytes.
