Showing 1 of 3 variants.
|Mutation Type||NSF: non-susceptible form
SF: susceptible form
|Method||CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy|
|Note||5 variants of the epitope were observed: KAFSPEVIPMF, KnFSPEVIPMF, rAFSPEVIPMF, and KgFnPEVIPMF. Depending on the subject, different versions of these variants were more or less susceptible to their CD8+ T cells, i.e., one person's escape form was another person's susceptible form. Responses against KnFSPEVIPMF were strong but subdominant in subjects carrying KAFSPEVIPMF and KnFSPEVIPMF and there was little or no response in subjects carrying KgFnPEVIPMF.|
