feline immunodeficiency virus
Widespread lentivirus (retrovirus) that causes an immunodeficiency in domestic cats.The immunodeficiency may be due to failure to generate an IL-12-dependent Type I response. CXC-R4 seems to be the surface receptor for viral binding - CD4 is not required in contrast with HIV infection.
