Data Sets: HLA Typing and Epitope Mapping


A number of studies have defined reactive peptide maps scanning HIV proteins. Although optimal epitopes are not usually defined, large sets of reactive peptides and the individual's HLA types are defined.

This site contains data tables, organized by study, that describe:

  1. Peptides: a list of the subjects that react with each peptide and the EliSpot or FluoroSpot results.
  2. Subjects: each person's HLA and other data.
  3. Maps of overlapping peptides and HLA types of responding individuals, relative to the HXB2 reference strain.
