What makes HIV so hard to treat is that the HIV virus infects CD4 lymphocytes, white blood cells which are among the main weapons in the immune response. HIV actually infects and neutralizes the very cells that are supposed to eliminate viral infections.

Where does protien digestion start?
Weegy: Proteins are polymers of amino acids covalently linked through peptide bonds into a chain. [ [ Within and outside of cells, proteins serve a myriad of functions, including structural roles (cytoskeleton), as catalysts (enzymes), transporter to ferry ions and molecules across membranes, and hormones to name just a few. With few exceptions, biotechnology is about understanding, modifying and ultimately exploiting proteins for new and useful purposes. To accomplish these goals, one would like to have a firm grasp of protein structure and how structure relates to function. This goal is, of course, much easier to articulate than to realize! The objective of this brief review is to summarize only the fundamental concepts of protein structure. ] ] (More)
