Surface S-Acylated Proteins - A Key to Cells with Latent HIV

Adrienne Wilk of the University of Illinois at Chicago in the U.S. will investigate whether post-translational modification of S-acylated cell surface proteins alters the plasma membrane of cells with latent HIV infection. If so, these S-acylated proteins could be used to identify such latently infected cells that cannot be detected using current diagnostic methods.
