Abstract: Summary IFI16 is an important player of the host intrinsic immune response. Among others, it has been reported to sense intermediate products of HIV-1 reverse transcription in the cytosol and to sequester the transcription factor Sp1 in the nucleus to attenuate viral gene expression. Here, we present three different methods to reduce IFI16 protein expression levels in HIV-1 primary target cells. These techniques can be adapted for the investigation of other cellular factors in primary macrophages an…
