The S100 calcium-binding proteins S100A8 and S100A9 are elevated systemically in patients with viral infections. The S100A8-S100A9 complex facilitated viral replication in human CD4+ T lymphocytes latently infected with HIV-1- and S100A8-induced HIV-1 transcriptional activity. Mechanisms inducing the S100 genes and the potential source of these proteins following viral activation are unknown. In this study, we show that S100A8 was induced in murine macrophages, and S100A8 and S100A9 in human...[Show more]
