a: CD4 receptor ~
b: an anchor on the cell


"Hovanessian says that CD4 receptor is like an anchor on the cell, to which HIV attaches, while CD26 is the door through which it enters. CD26 reacts with a part of the virus's protein coat called the V3 loop. Hovanessian says that this sequence is like the key which opens the CD26 door."
