HIV-Specific Cytotoxic T Cells in HIV-Exposed but Uninfected Gambian Women. Nat. Med., 1:59-64, 1995. Four HIV-1 and -2 cross-reactive epitopes that are presented to CTL from HIV-infected Gambians by HLA-35 were identified. These peptides could elicit HIV-specific CTLs from 3 of 6 repeatedly exposed but seronegative sex workers who carry the HLA-B35 allele. Most CTL derived from HIV-2 positive donors also recognized the HIV-2 peptide and the analogous HIV-1 peptide. PubMed ID: 7584954. Show all entries for this paper.
