Abstract

The severe hepatic disorders in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is often attributed to a variety of other factors which could affect hepatic function. To evaluate the mechanism of liver damage in murine AIDS-induced immune-suppressed animal, a murine model of AIDS (MAIDS), caused by infection with LP-BM5 murine leukemia virus was used at a late stage of the disease. Retroviral infection significantly increased hepatic cholesterol, triacylgycerol and the cholesterol/phospholipid ratio. Similarly, the proportions of palmitic, palmitoleic, linoleic, ratios of linoleic to arachidonic and saturated to unsaturated fatty acids were significantly lower while the proportion of oleic, docosatetraenoic and docosahexenoic fatty acids were significantly increased in the retrovirus infected mice. Hepatic dysfunction as evidenced by increased serum transaminase levels were also observed in the retrovirus infected animals. The data suggest that the liver damage in murine AIDS is induced by retroviral infection and the desaturase enzymes system necessary to maintain regular balance of the fatty acids in the cells may be affected during retroviral infection.
