Study suggests a way to stop HIV in its tracks

When HIV-1 infects an immune cell, the virus travels to the nucleus so quickly there’s not enough time to set off the cell’s alarm system. Researchers have discovered the protein that helps the virus travel so fast. Without this protein, the virus became stranded in the cytoplasm, where it was detected by the viral defense system….
