Abstract

The C-type lectin DC-SIGN binds to oligosaccharides on the human and simian immunodeficiency virus (HIV, SIV) envelope glycoproteins and promotes infection of susceptible cells. Here, we show that DC-SIGN recognizes glycans involved in SIV sensitivity to neutralizing antibodies and that binding to DC-SIGN confers neutralization resistance to an otherwise sensitive SIV variant. Moreover, we provide evidence that mannose-binding lectin (MBL) can interfere with HIV-1 neutralization by the carbohydrate-specific antibody 2G12. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
