  • Cultural Shock - 1,305 words

Plainly put, these anthropologists underwent a culture shock; "disorientation experienced by a person suddenly to an unfamiliar culture."

This illustrates why these isolates can infect monocytes and primary lymphocytes, both of which express CCR-5, but not T-cell lines, which lack this co-receptor. By contrast, T-cell-tropic strains cannot infect monocytes because they lack the CXCR-4 co-receptor.
