Nietfeld1995 W. Nietfeld, M. Bauer, M. Fevrier, R. Maier, B. Holzwarth, R. Frank, B. Maier, Y. Riviere, and A. Meyerhans. Sequence Constraints and Recognition by CTL of an HLA-B27-Restricted HIV-1 Gag Epitope. J. Immunol., 154:2188-2197, 1995. Single point mutations were introduced into this epitope in the viral strain LAI, and the ability of comparable peptides to sensitize target strains was tested. The change of anchor residue R 264 to (L or G), results in infectious virus, and corresponding peptide has reduced binding affinities for HLA-B27. The change of G 267 to K or E abrogated infectivity, and the peptide bound to HLA-B27, but did not serve as a target; thus nonrecognition of peptides derived from quasispecies analysis of a small region might not really be associated with an escape mutant, but rather a non-viable mutant.
