Note Cross-clade T cell responses are frequently induced in individuals infected with different HIV-1 clades. There was an inverse correlation between the height of responses and epitope sequence divergence. For Gag epitopes, the magnitude of the response was directly linked to the homology between HLA anchor residues.
