Variant Details

Showing 1 of 2 variants.


Variant ID.  4454
Epitope Seq.  WASRELEKF
Variant Seq.  WASRELErF
Mutations K/R
Epitope Location K8R
HXB2 Location K43R
Mutation Type OV: observed variant
RCR: replicative capacity reduced
SF: susceptible form
Method CD8 T-cell Elispot - IFNy, Longitudinal study, Other, Relative replication capacity assay
Note Mutation K43R appeared at 91d post-screening, and was fixed by 175d post-screening by which time it was predominant (83%), indicating strong selection. No T-cell- or Ab-responses were detected against the mutant, and it was not a cryptic epitope, showing host-specific, non-adaptive immune selection pressures. The mutant was shown to be 12% less fit than the T/F virus over 3 comparative fitness passages until it was almost completely replaced by the T/F.
