Mutch1994 D. Mutch, J. Underwood, M. Geysen, and S. Rodda. Comprehensive T-cell epitope mapping of HIV-1 env antigens reveals many areas recognized by HIV-1-seropositive and by low-risk HIV-1-seronegative individuals. J. Acquir. Immune Defic. Syndr., 7(9):879-90, Sep 1994. Notes: The proliferative T-cell response to pools of overlapping 17 mer peptides spanning Env were tested in both seronegative and low risk seropositive people. The pool that gave the greatest number of responders was pool 25, located in gp41. The 17 mer peptides used in this pool were tested individually for their ability to stimulate T-cell proliferation, and the most critical regions were found to be GIWGCSGKLIC and PWNASWSN. Mutch et al. suggest that the proliferative response in HIV-1 seronegative individuals is more likely due to cross-reactive, non-HIV induced memory cells than naive T-cells. PubMed ID: 7519672.
