This discovery sheds light on the role of a protein of this innate immunity in humans, TRIM5alpha, which induces a mechanism of protection against HIV-1 (the most common type of HIV in the world). Understanding this natural immunity mechanism could potentially be used in the development of immune strategies to inhibit the virus. Researchers believe this could possibly be done through genetic modifications to TRIM5alpha.
