We want to ensure your continued use of the materials within the NIH HIV Reagent Program with minimal impact to you.  The NIH HIV Reagent Program materials are provided at no cost to registered researchers (shipping charges apply).

ARP-95: HIV-1 LAV-Infected 8E5 Cells

ARP-95, HIV-1 LAV-Infected 8E5 cells, is a cell line known to contain a single integrated copy of HIV provirus per cell, which directs synthesis of defective virus particles. This cell line can be used for HIV genome quantification. Click here for more information on ARP-95.

ARP-4961: HIV-1 BaL gp120 Recombinant Protein

The HIV Reagent program offers a recombinant gp120 protein from human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) strain BaL, a glycoprotein found on the outer surface of the virus. Consisting of viral membrane spikes (3 molecules of gp120 linked together and anchored to the membrane by gp41 protein), it is essential for viral infection, as it facilitates HIV entry into the host cell.
