Table 1 Summary of viral transmission experiments with various hematopoetic and liver cells

From: The simultaneous presence and expression of human hepatitis C virus (HCV), human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6), and human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) in a single human T-cell

  1. 1T-cells isolated from human fetal chord blood.
  2. 2B-cells immortalized by infection with transforming EBV.
  3. 3Monocyte/Macrophages, adherent cells stimulated with PMA.
  4. 4Recently isolated neuronal cells from fetal human brain.
  5. 5Freshly isolated liver cells from liver biopsies. Kupffer's cells are liver macrophages and Hepatocytes are liver endothelial cells.
