Variant Details

Showing all: 1 variant(s).

Variant ID.  127
Epitope Seq.  NIWATHACV
Variant Seq.  NvWATHACV
Mutations I/V
Epitope Location I2V
HXB2 Location I68V
Mutation Type NSF: non-susceptible form
SF: susceptible form
Method CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy, Chromium-release assay, Flow cytometric T-cell cytokine assay
Note This peptide was a good A2 binder, and induced CTL and CD8+ T-cell IFN gamma responses in mice. Responses were detected in 1/17 HIV+ HLA-A2 subjects. The variant nVwathacv was also immunogenic in transgenic mice, but was not recognized in the 17 people tested.
