This article, published in Cell Host & Microbe, looked at human immunodeficiency virus, type 1 (HIV-1) Envelope gp41 antibodies. (Gp41 is a protein on the surface of HIV that helps the virus invade the host's cells; it is of interest to those aiming to develop HIV vaccines.) Researchers wanted to know what shaped gp41 antibody response to HIV-1. Their findings supported…
