Multiple antigenic peptides (MAP) comprising eight synthetic peptides corresponding to the V3 loop of HIV-1MN or HIV-1IIIB linked to a lysine core were used to characterize the humoral Ab response of HIV-1-infected patients against this domain. One hundred percent of the tested sera from HIV-1-infected European patients reacted significantly with the(More)
As part of an ongoing vaccine study using peptide immunogens designed to stimulate simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV)mac-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) it was necessary to identify rhesus macaques within our colony bearing the Mamu-A1 major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I haplotype. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from individual(More)
The transmembrane glycoproteins of all retroviruses contain a conserved region composed of a leucine zipper, an immunosuppressive domain, and an immunodominant Cys-Cys loop. The amino acid sequence of the immunosuppressive domain of gp41 of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1; amino acids 583-599) is closely related, but not identical, to the(More)
An investigation of subnanosecond switching of 119-microm radiation achieved by irradiating high-resistivity silicon wafers with 1.7-ns, 337-nm pulses from a nitrogen laser is presented. The experimental results are compared with a one-dimensional numerical multilayer model, which accounts for the generation, recombination, and diffusion of the free(More)
