Lentiviruses cause chronic persistent infections in various mammalian species, including bovines, horses, sheep, felines, and primates.
To address this, a prospective study was initiated in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, the only field site where SIVcpz infected chimpanzees are habituated and so can be observed in their natural habitat.
Gombe is located in northwestern Tanzania on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. SIVcpz also appears to be transmitted from infected mothers to their infants, and in rare cases, possibly by aggression (Keele et al. Migration of infected females constitutes a major route of virus transmission between communities (Rudicell et al. Behavioral and virological studies also provided insight into the pathogenicity of SIVcpz.
However, the sporadic prevalence of SIVcpz, along with its more recent monkey origin, suggested that its natural history might differ from that of other primate lentiviruses.
2010), and it is tempting to speculate that less ubiquitous SIVs were acquired more recently and/or may be more pathogenic.
Of the many primate lentiviruses that have been identified, SIVcpz has been of particular interest because of its close genetic relationship to HIV-1 (Fig. However, studies of this virus have proven to be challenging because of the endangered status of chimpanzees.
We also show that AIDS has likely afflicted chimpanzees long before the emergence of HIV.
Tracing the genetic changes that occurred as SIVs crossed from monkeys to apes and from apes to humans provides a new framework to examine the requirements of successful host switches and to gauge future zoonotic risk. HIV-1 spreads by sexual, percutaneous, and perinatal routes (Hladik and Mc Elrath 2008; Cohen et al.
Examples range from incidental “dead-end” infections (e.g., SIVver infections of baboons) (Jin et al. 1998) to the generation of new SIV lineages with substantial secondary spread (e.g., SIVgor infection of gorillas) (Van Heuverswyn et al. In addition, cross-species transmissions have generated mosaic SIV lineages through superinfection and recombination in species that already harbored an SIV (e.g., SIVsab infection of sabaeus monkeys) (Jin et al. In both mandrills (), such recombination events have led to the emergence of a second SIV strain that cocirculates with the original virus (Souquiere et al. What remains unknown is when and how often these cross-species transfers have occurred, what impact they had on virus and host biology, and whether AIDS is a frequent consequence of SIV host switching.
