Variant Details

Showing all: 1 variant(s).

Variant ID.  170
Mutations R/K L/I
Epitope Location R10K L14I
HXB2 Location R30K L34I
Mutation Type SNSF: subtype-specific non-susceptible form
Epitope Subtype A
Variant Subtype B
Note CTL responses in three individuals with non-clade B infections were studied, 2 with subtype A infections, 1 with subtype C -- their infections all originated in East Africa. This epitope was defined in an A subtype infection -- the B clade variant (LRPGGKKKYKLKHIVWASRE) has two mutations relative to the A subtype form, and the CTLs from this patient were not A-B cross-reactive.
