The body surfaces [such as the linings of the vagina, cervix, anus, and oropharynx] that are potentially exposed to HIV-1 during sexual and perinatal transmission, are similar to the skin in histology and dendritic cell [DC] content. Since large amounts of fresh skin are more readily available, the skin-derived leukocytes have been used as a model for the mucosal leukocytes to study their interaction with virus and potential roles in viral pathogenesis.
