|Mutation Type||DR: diminished response
SSF: subtype-specific susceptible form
|Note||CTL responses in three individuals with non-clade B infections were studied, 2 with subtype A infections, 1 with subtype C -- their infections all originated in East Africa. This epitope is similar to the A24 DYVDRYFKT epitope found for B subtype, but CTL from this A subtype infection required the additional Arg -- the B clade sequence change from F to Y diminished CTL reactivity.|
