Interesting link about viruses and the definitions of cells/life http://www.nature.com/news/2008/080806/full/454677a.html Describes a large “mamavirus” that can itself be infected and “sickened” with a small satellite virus nicknamed “Sputnik” The mamavirus is even slightly larger than the mimivirus. Together, these are the two largest viruses, so large that they can be seen with a light microscope (~ 200 nm). The structure of the mimivirus was determined here at Purdue in 2009 by Michael Rossmann’s lab.

Progression of HIV viral load and CD4+ T cell depletion CD4+ T helper cells are immune cells that promote the immune response Mechanism of CD4+ death not well understood, but is mainly through apoptosis (programmed cell death) Thought that majority of CD4+ cells killed are uninfected “bystanders” whose cell death pathways become activated Alimonti et al. 2003
