SLYNlVAvL   escape documented in this paper; non-susceptible form; TCR related mutation
Epitope Name SL9
Species (MHC/HLA human(A2)

Variant Details

Showing 1 of 6 variants.

Variant ID.  1860
Epitope Seq.  SLYNTVATL
Variant Seq.  SLYNlVAvL
Mutations T/L T/V
Epitope Location T5L T8V
HXB2 Location T81L T84V
Mutation Type E: escape documented in this paper
NSF: non-susceptible form
TCR: TCR related mutation
Method Chromium-release assay, Relative replication capacity assay, Sequence
Note CTL Clones 18030D23 and 161JxA14 from different subjects do not recognize this variant. Both clones recognize SL9 index sequence similarly. Since the clones are from different HIV-1 infected subjects, with different TCR sequences, TCR is seen to contribute to escape differentially in this instance.
