Immune evasion by HIV-1 during acute infection is critical for the establishment of latency. Barouch et al. (2016) and Guo et al. (2016) demonstrate in independent studies that Nod-like receptor X1 (NLRX1) may facilitate early systemic dissemination of HIV-1 by inhibiting the virus-triggered innate immune response.
