A unique HIV-2 intergroup recombinant strain was identified in Cameroon. The virus, CM-03-510-03, was amplified from blood collected from a 47-year-old female patient in Douala, Cameroon in 2003 who was seroreactive for HIV-2. A near full-length genome 9089 nucleotides in length was amplified from proviral DNA. The genome for CM-03-510-03 is composed of segments of HIV-2 groups A and B with four recombination break-points and has open reading frames for all the structural and regulatory genes… CONTINUE READING
