Variant Details

Showing all: 1 variant(s).

Variant ID.  341
Epitope Seq.  SLYNTVATL
Variant Seq.  SLfNTiATL
Mutations Y/F V/I
Epitope Location Y3F V6I
HXB2 Location Y79F V82I
Mutation Type DR: diminished response
Epitope Subtype C
Variant Subtype A, D
Note The wild type epitope sequence was a subtype C peptide, the variant common to subtypes A and D. CTL response in 56 individuals from Tanzania was strongest for subtype C peptide, and lower for subtypes A and D, due to point mutation effect.
