Note A/E clade epitope RELERFAl was found in 17/26 A/E patients of the KI cohort, though it was found in 111/1644 B virus and 217/315 clade A/E virus sequences in the Los Alamos HIV-1 database. It was recognized by CTL from clade A/E-infected patient KI-388 which had been elicited by consensus clade B RV8.
