Species (MHC/HLA human(A*02:01, A*30:02)

Variant Details

Showing 1 of 15 variants.

Variant ID.  2978
Variant Seq.  RSLfNTVAvLY
Mutations Y/F T/V
Epitope Location Y4F T9V
HXB2 Location Y79F T84V
Mutation Type DHB: diminished HLA binding or increased off-rate
DR: diminished response
E: escape documented in this paper
Epitope Subtype B
Variant Subtype B
Method CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy, HLA binding
Note Variant RSLfNTVAvLY did not bind to HLA-A*02 in vitro, and it showed a significant decrease in ex-vivo EliSpot response in 1 chronically-infected, untreated patient; abrogation of CTL response in another such patient; with no changes in the third patient when compared to wt RY11. The authors designate Y79F and T84V mutation-containing peptides to be escapes.
