Immunogenicity of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) reverse transcriptase: Detection of high levels of antibodies to HIV reverse transcriptase in sera of homosexual men


Immunoglobulin isolated from sera of homosexual men infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) inhibited the reverse transcriptase (RT) activity of HIV. The inhibitory activity was specifically directed against HIV RT, and not against other mammalian retrovirus RT, including human T-lymphotropic virus type I. The relative titer of anti-RT antibody was… (More)
