1. Can HIV attach itself to a muscle cell or a skin cell?

It seems that HIV attacks the immune system mainly by damaging the CD4 (also known as T4 or T-helper) cells which help the body fight off diseases.

But I don't think that is the correct answer to this question. Theoretically wouldn't it attack a muscle cell or skin cell indirectly?

Thanks for your time

Also, Why is it that you cannot get aids by shaking hands? (Using information about binding sites) Thanks
