Retrovirus-Cell Interactions provides an up-to-date review of the interactions between retroviruses and the cells they infect, offering a comprehensive understanding of how retroviruses hijack cellular factors to facilitate virus replication. Drugs targeting viral enzymes have been developed to treat HIV; the next challenge is to inhibit virus-cell interactions as next generation treatment strategies. Organized according to the retrovirus' replication cycle, this book does not focus exclusively on HIV, but rather includes important findings in other retroviral systems, including animal retroviruses, retrotransposons, and endogenous retroelements to allow broad comparisons on important commonalities and differences.

Key Features

  • Provides a valuable starting point for people who want to develop a detailed understanding of retroviral replication
  • Includes future-thinking strategies, such as next-generation treatment and anti-retroviral therapeutics
  • Features important commonalities and differences among retroviral systems


Clinicians, researchers and academics in Virology, Microbiology/Immunology, and Molecular Biology
