Abstract Cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) type I has been established as an acute inhibitor of T cell activation. For this reason, we investigated the possible role of PKA type I in HIV-induced T cell dysfunction. T cells from HIV-infected patients have increased levels of cAMP and are more sensitive to inhibition by cAMP analog than are normal T cells. A PKA type I-selective antagonist increases the impaired proliferation of T cells from HIV-infected patients to normal or subnormal levels (up to 2.8-fold). Follow-up of patients after initiation of highly active antiretroviral treatment revealed that a majority of patients have a persistent T cell dysfunction that is normalized by incubation of T cells with Rp-8-Br-cAMPS. These observations imply that increased activation of PKA type I may contribute to the progressive T cell dysfunction in HIV infection and that PKA type I may be a potential target for immunomodulating therapy.
