When primary macrophages are pretreated with TNFα in vitro, the virus entrance into these macrophages is inhibited. In this case, the action of the TNFα passes through the receptor of the TNFα RII (75 kDa). 92 Tat is liberated in the extracellular compartments where it behaves like a toxin. 96 The inhibition of the NOS activity abolishes the cytotoxicity of gp120. Therefore, oxidative stress diminishes the defenses of the host (eliminating immune defenses and increasing apoptosis, particularly of CD4 cells) and favors the replication of the virus.
