Variant Details

Showing all: 1 variant(s).

Variant ID.  3300
Epitope Seq.  QVPLRPMTYK
Variant Seq.  QiPLRPMTYK
Mutations V/I
Epitope Location V2I
HXB2 Location V74I
Mutation Type DHB: diminished HLA binding or increased off-rate
OV: observed variant
Epitope Subtype B
Variant Subtype B
Method CTL suppression of replication, HLA binding, Sequence
Note Strain DH12-specific variant of epitope QK10, QiPLRPMTYK, was poorly recognized by a strain LAI QK10-specific CTL clone. Suppression of replication of all DH12 viruses was poor.
