Since the normal function of the chemokine receptors used by HIV-I for entry is to activate cells in response to various stimuli, he hypothesized that the virus itself (or its envelope glycoprotein gp120 that mediates attachment to cells) might mimic natural activation signals and he responsible for inflammation and injury in organs like brain and lung where macrophages are infected and also activated.
