Landau and team found that dendritic cells, which produce the protein SAMHD1 are resistant to infection with HIV. They made out to it, why and how SAMHD1 protects these cells. They hoped find a way to synthetically apply this protection to other cells in the human body.First author on the research being marks Pimentel, MD, from Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
