Cellular glycosphingolipids mediate the fusion between some viruses and the plasma membrane of target cells. In the present study, we have analyzed the interaction of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 and HIV-2 surface envelope glycoproteins from distinct viral isolates with monolayers of various glycosphingolipids at the air-water interface. The penetration of the viral glycoproteins into glycosphingolipid monolayers was detected as an increase in the surface pressure. We found that HIV-1 recombinant gp120 (IIIB isolate) could penetrate into a monomolecular film of alpha-hydroxylated galactosylceramide (GalCer-HFA), while ceramides, GluCer, and nonhydroxylated GalCer were totally inactive. The glycoproteins isolated from HIV-1 isolates LAI and NDK and from HIV-2(ROD) could also interact with a GalCer-HFA monolayer, whereas gp120 from HIV-1(SEN) and HIV-1(89.6) did not react. These data correlated with the ability of the corresponding viruses to gain entry into the CD4(-)/GalCer+ cell line HT-29, demonstrating the determinant role of GalCer-HFA in this CD4-independent pathway of HIV-1 and HIV-2 infection. In contrast, all HIV-1 and HIV-2 glycoproteins tested were found to interact with a monolayer of GM3, a ganglioside abundantly expressed in the plasma membrane of CD4(+) lymphocytes and macrophages. A V3 loop-derived synthetic peptide inhibitor of HIV-1 and HIV-2 infection in both CD4(-) and CD4(+) cells could penetrate into various glycosphingolipid monolayers, including GalCer-HFA and GM3. Taken together, these data suggest that the adsorption of human immunodeficiency viruses to the surface of target cells involves an interaction between the V3 domain of the surface envelope glycoprotein and specific glycosphingolipids, i.e. GalCer-HFA for CD4(-) cells and GM3 for CD4(+) cells.
