OBJECTIVE To describe the genetic diversity of HIV-1 in South America by full genome sequencing and analysis. METHODS Purified peripheral blood mononuclear cell DNA from HIV-infected individuals in Argentina, Uruguay and Bolivia was used to amplify full HIV-1 genomes. These were sequenced using the ABI 3100 automated sequencer and phylogenetically analysed. RESULTS Twenty-one HIV-1 strains from three South American countries, 17 of which were pre-screened by envelope heteroduplex mobility… CONTINUE READING
