We have studied the breadth and potency of the inhibitory actions of the CC chemokines macrophage inhibitory protein 1alpha (MIP-1alpha), MIP-1beta, and RANTES against macrophage-tropic (M-tropic) primary isolates of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and of the CXC chemokine stromal cell-derived factor 1alpha against T-cell-tropic (T-tropic) isolates, using mitogen-stimulated primary CD4+ T cells as targets. There was considerable interisolate variation in the sensitivity of HIV-1 to chemokine inhibition, which was especially pronounced for the CC chemokines and M-tropic strains. However, this variation was not obviously dependent on the genetic subtype (A through F) of the virus i..
