Legend to Table 2 to 7B: The CTL epitopes that should be recognized according to the HLA alleles are defined using the HXB2 reference. The observed corresponding epitopes in the different samples are described either for RNA or DNA. The dates are the dates of sampling.
« Id » indicates that the epitope observed is identical to the HxB2 reference. The numbers in parenthesis are the theorical MHC IC50 (nM) according to simulation of affinity between the epitopes and the HLA alleles. The numbers in parenthesis and italic represent percentages of RT variants determined by UDPS.
