|Epitope Name||gag 77-85|
Showing 1 of 8 variants.
|Mutation Type||DR: diminished response
E: escape documented in this paper
TCR: TCR related mutation
|Method||CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy|
|Note||Artificially synthesized variant. It was poorly recognized by CTLs from some of the A2+ HIV infected asymptomatic individuals. The variant bound to HLA-A2 with higher affinity than the wt epitope, indicating that the poor CTL recognition was due to inhibition of TCR recognition.|
