Variant Details

Showing all: 1 variant(s).

Variant ID.  4457
Epitope Seq.  VKVIEEKAF{S}
Variant Seq.  VKVIEqKAF{N}
Mutations S/N E/Q
Epitope Location S10N E6Q
HXB2 Location S165N E161Q
Mutation Type OV: observed variant
SF: susceptible form
Method CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy, Longitudinal study, Other, Sequence
Note Mutations E161Q/S165N awere fixed to completion (100%) by 670d post-screening, indicating strong selection. No T-cell- or Ab-responses were detected against the mutant, and it was not a cryptic epitope, showing host-specific, non-adaptive immune selection pressures.
