OBJECTIVES The aim of our investigation was to study the HIV-1 env V3 loop sequences of the subtype A variant of the virus actively circulating in the territory of Eastern Europe (A1-EE). DESIGN It appears that the characteristics of HIV-1 V3 loop sequences of the thoroughly studied subtype B strains determine the viruses tropism and phenotype. We were… CONTINUE READING
