RESEARCH AREA: Microbial Immunology, cell signalling & Cancer Biology


Topic: “RDC1 (A co-receptor of HIV-1) expression and signaling mechanism in the human placenta and its possible implications” During my research work at AIIMS, New Delhi, I identified the differential expression of one of the novel co-receptor of HIV in the Human placenta, called RDC1/CXCR7. We investigated the expression of RDC1/CXCR7 (A chemokine receptor) in the early and late stages of the human placenta. Our study reported for the first time that the expression of RDC1/CXCR7 increases at the later stage of the human placenta which a crucial stage for the vertical transmission of HIV-1. Further, we also reported that this receptor (CXCR7) signals through the CXCL12/SDF-1 in the human placental cells and activates different cell survival pathways. This effect of SDF-1-CXCR7 signaling was independent of CXCL12-CXCR4 interaction. This breakthrough opened a new question about the previously proposed exclusive role of CXCL12-CXCR4 in the growth and development of the human placenta. To sum up, we reported for the first time, the differential expression of CXCR7 and elucidated the signaling pathways triggered by the SDF-1-CXCR7 interaction in the Human placenta.
