Shotton1995 C. Shotton, C. Arnold, Q. Sattentau, J. Sodroski, and J. A. McKeating. Identification and characterization of monoclonal antibodies specific for polymorphic antigenic determinants within the V2 region of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 envelope glycoprotein. J. Virol., 69:222-230, 1995. Anti-V2 linear and conformation dependent MAbs were studied. All V2 Abs studied could bind IIIB, but failed to neutralize non-clonal stocks. Epitope exposure is different in rgp120 compared to native gp120. HXB2 V2-MAb neutralization escape mutants were sequenced. PubMed ID: 7527084. Show all entries for this paper.

McKeating1996b J. A. McKeating, Y. J. Zhang, C. Arnold, R. Frederiksson, E. M. Fenyo, and P. Balfe. Chimeric viruses expressing primary envelope glycoproteins of human immunodeficiency virus type I show increased sensitivity to neutralization by human sera. Virology, 220:450-460, 1996. Chimeric viruses for HXB2 with primary isolate gp120 gave patterns of cell tropism and cytopathicity identical to the original primary viruses. Sera that were unable to neutralize the primary isolates were in some cases able to neutralize chimeric viruses, indicating that some of the neutralizing epitopes were in gp41. PubMed ID: 8661395.
