Variant Details

Showing all: 2 variant(s).

Variant ID.  3211
Epitope Seq.  KRWIILGLNK
Variant Seq.  KRWIImGLNK
Mutations L/M
Epitope Location L6M
HXB2 Location L268M
Mutation Type SF: susceptible form
Method Chromium-release assay
Note Variant KRWIImGLNK was recognized equally well by KK10-specific CTL. Structurally the TCR-KK10 and TCR-Leu268Met variant were identical.

Variant ID.  3212
Epitope Seq.  KRWIILGLNK
Variant Seq.  KkWIILGLNK
Mutations R/K
Epitope Location R2K
HXB2 Location R264K
Mutation Type E: escape documented in this paper
LE: literature escape
NSF: non-susceptible form
Method Chromium-release assay
Note Variant KkWIILGLNK was not recognized by KK10-specific CTL and therefore an escape. This epitope variation was more slowly acquired.
