Abstract: CXCR4 is widely expressed in multiple cell types, and is involved in neonatal development, hematopoiesis, and lymphocyte trafficking and homing. Disruption of the CXCL12/CXCR4 interaction has been implicated in stem cell mobilization. Additionally CXCR4 is a co-receptor for HIV. Selective small molecule antagonists of CXCR4 therefore have therapeutic potential. AMD3465 is an N-pyridinylmethylene monocyclam CXCR4 antagonist which can block infection of T-tropic, CXCR4-using HIV. Using the CCRF-CEM T-cell line w…
