Studies have determined that HIV latency is influenced by the innate immune response carried out by cell restriction factors that inhibit the postintegration steps in the virus replication cycle. This mathematical model combines deterministic and stochastic approaches to analyze the interactions between HIV proteins and the innate immune response.

These deterministic simulations (created in VCell and corresponding to Figure 2 in publication) use two different initial conditions (HIV_proteins(0)=0, CRFs(0)=0 and HIV_proteins(0)=5, CRFs(0)=0) and give rise to two stable states.
