Bohn-Wippert et al. investigate reactivation of T cells latently infected with HIV. They discover that only larger cells exit latency, while smaller cells remain silent. Viral expression bursts are cell size and cell-cycle dependent, presenting dynamic cell states, capable of active control, as sources of viral fate determination.
