Variant Details

Showing 1 of 6 variants.

Variant ID.  1831
Epitope Seq.  SLYNTVATL
Variant Seq.  SLfNTVATL
Mutations Y/F
Epitope Location Y3F
HXB2 Location Y79F
Mutation Type SF: susceptible form
Method Intracellular cytokine staining, Sequence, TCR binding
Note This naturally occurring variant was recognized by a CTL line from patient 868. Wild type 868 TCR also bound this variant. Binding to high-affinity TCR (a11b6) increased the magnitude of cytokine response.
