Showing all: 1 variant(s).
|Mutation Type||E: escape documented in this paper
SF: susceptible form
|Method||CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy, Chromium-release assay, HLA binding, Longitudinal study|
|Note||Both K and R variants bind HLA-B8. The predominant variant shifts from K to R, back to K. R variant is never recognized; but the K variant is initially recognized, loses recognition and begins to gain recognition by CTL again.|

Antigenic Oscillations and Shifting Immunodominance in HIV-1 Infections. Nature, 375:606-611, 1995. This paper presents longitudinal studies of epitope variation and corresponding CTL responses in two patients. A mathematical model was created to provide a framework to explain the observed shifts in epitope and CTLp frequencies. For discussion, see also: J. M. Coffin, Nature 375:534-535 (1995).
