Method Sequence
Note SILRGGnLDK is a known escape variant. While SILRGGnLDK does not appear to have been transmitted to 133-C from the A*74- (which is the restricting HLA for SK10) mother, it arose in the child and was observed to be at a frequency of 100% at 0.3yr. In 133-C, A*74+, the K12N mutation was always observed as a co-variant with G11E and sometimes covariant with I7V.
