We previously showed that rhesus macaques neonatally infected with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) do not develop SIV encephalitis (SIVE) and maintain low brain viral loads despite having similar plasma viral loads compared to SIV-infected adults. We hypothesize that differences in myeloid cell populations that are the known target of SIV and HIV in the brain contribute to the lack of neonatal susceptibility to lentivirus-induced encephalitis. Using immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence microscopy, we examined the frontal cortices from uninfected and SIV-infected infant and adult macaques (n = 8/ea) as well as adults with SIVE (n = 4) to determine differences in myeloid cell populations. The number of CD206+ brain perivascular macrophages (PVMs) was significantly greater in uninfected infants than in uninfected adults and was markedly lower in SIV-infected infants while microglia numbers were unchanged across groups. CD206+ PVMs, which proliferate after infection in SIV-infected adults, did not undergo proliferation in infants. While virtually all CD206+ cells in adults are also CD163+, infants have a distinct CD206 single-positive population in addition to the double-positive population commonly seen in adults. Notably, we found that more than 60% of these unique CD206+CD163- PVMs in SIV-infected infants were positive for cleaved caspase-3, an indicator of apoptosis, and that nearly 100% of this subset were concomitantly positive for the necroptosis marker receptor-interacting protein kinase-3 (RIP3). These findings show that distinct subpopulations of PVMs found in infants undergo programmed cell death instead of proliferation following SIV infection, which may lead to the absence of PVM-dependent SIVE and the limited size of the virus reservoir in the infant brain.

Despite combination antiretroviral therapies making HIV a chronic rather than terminal condition for many people, the prevalence of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) is increasing. This is especially problematic for children living with HIV. Children diagnosed HAND rarely display the hallmark pathology of HIV encephalitis in adults, namely infected macrophages and multinucleated giant cells in the brain. This finding has also been documented in rhesus macaques infected perinatally w...

Necroptosis is a form of necrotic cell death that requires the activity of the death domain-containing kinase RIP1 and its family member RIP3. Necroptosis occurs when RIP1 is deubiquitinated to form a complex with RIP3 in cells deficient in the death receptor adapter molecule FADD or caspase-8. Necroptosis may play a role in host defense during viral infection as viruses like vaccinia can induce necroptosis while murine cytomegalovirus encodes a viral inhibitor of necroptosis. To see how general...

Second mitochondria-derived activator of caspases, or SMAC, is a protein involved in apoptosis, a mechanism of cell death that is commonly targeted by cancer therapies. SMAC mimetics are drugs designed to mimic the action of SMAC. Now, a pair of related articles provides insights into the effects of SMAC mimetics in leukemia. For acute lymphocytic leukemia, McComb et al. show that a SMAC mimetic called birinapant works best when it can activate two different types of cell death: apoptosis and ne...

Macrophage recruitment to the central nervous system (CNS) during AIDS pathogenesis is poorly understood. We measured the accumulation of brain perivascular (CD163 + ) and inflammatory (MAC387 + ) macrophages in SIV-infected monkeys. Monocyte progenitors were 5-bromo-2′-deoxyuridine (BrdU) labeled in bone marrow, and CNS macrophages were labeled serially with fluorescent dextrans injected into the cisterna magna. MAC387 + macrophages accumulated in the meninges and choroid plexus in early inflam...

Regulated cell death has essential functions in development and in adult tissue homeostasis. Necroptosis is a newly discovered pathway of regulated necrosis that requires the proteins RIPK3 and MLKL and is induced by death receptors, interferons, toll-like receptors, intracellular RNA and DNA sensors, and probably other mediators. RIPK1 has important kinase-dependent and scaffolding functions that inhibit or trigger necroptosis and apoptosis. Mouse-model studies have revealed important functions...

We examined the expression of the mannose receptor CD206 by perivascular macrophages (PVM) in normal human and monkey brains and in brains of HIV-infected humans and of monkeys infected with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV). Depletion of brain PVM in SIV-infected monkeys by intrathecal injection of liposome-encapsulated bisphosphonates eliminated CD206-expressing cells in the brain, confirming their perivascular location and phagocytic capacity. In vivo labeling with bromodeoxyuridine in norm...

Myeloid cells play a critical role in perpetuating inflammation during various chronic diseases. Recently the death of macrophages through programmed necrosis (necroptosis) has emerged as an important mechanism in inflammation and pathology. We evaluated the mechanisms that lead to the induction of necrotic cell death in macrophages. Our results indicate that type I IFN (IFN-I) signaling is a predominant mechanism of necroptosis, because macrophages deficient in IFN-α receptor type I (IFNAR1) ar...

The role of type I interferon in bacterial infection is poorly understood. Sad and colleagues demonstrate that Salmonella-triggered production of type I interferon induces macrophage necroptosis, evasion of the immune response and dissemination of bacteria.

: The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is a neurotrophic lentivirus that enters and infects the central nervous system (CNS) of adults and children, giving rise to the clinical syndromes of AIDS-dementia complex (ADC) in adults and HIV-1-associated progressive encephalopathy (PE) in pediatric patients. The clinical presentation and progression of neuroAIDS in the developing brain of children is distinct from that seen in adult patients. Neuroimaging, and upon autopsy, neuropathologica...
