Antiretroviral drug therapy and cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) both exert selective pressures on human immunodeficiency virus type 1, which influence viral evolution. Compared to chronically infected, antiretroviral-untreated patients, most chronically infected, treated patients with detectable viremia lack a cellular immune response against the Gag(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-specific CD8(+) T-lymphocyte pressure can lead to the development of viral escape mutants, with consequent loss of immune control. Antiretroviral drugs also exert selection pressures on HIV, leading to the emergence of drug resistance mutations and increased levels of viral replication. We have determined a minimal epitope(More)
A porous hybrid inorganic/organic material, NaNi3(OH)(SIP)2 [SIP = 5-sulfoisophthalate][1], is shown to strongly bind molecular hydrogen at coordinatively unsaturated metal sites. A combination of H2 sorption isotherms, temperature programmed desorption, and inelastic neutron scattering spectroscopy show the existence of a considerable number of such strong(More)
