Variant Details

Showing all: 1 variant(s).

Variant ID.  2668
Epitope Seq.  KRWIILGLNK
Variant Seq.  KRWIIMGLNK
Mutations L/M
Epitope Location L6M
HXB2 Location L268M
Mutation Type E: escape documented in this paper
TCR: TCR related mutation
Method CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy, TCR binding
Note The L6M mutant was associated with lower antigen sensitivity. The early-arising L6M mutation enables the virus to avoid recognition by effective CD8+ T-cell clonotypes.
