Two distinct infectious molecular clones of human immunodeficiency type 2 (HIV-2) were analyzed for their biological properties in six cell lines. Fourteen chimeric and ten mutant viruses were constructed from these two viral genomes to localize the genetic determinants responsible for the phenotypes. Growth property of the viruses in the cell lines, together with the biochemical data, showed that a major determinant for the viral tropism resides in the env gene. In addition, in some cell lines… CONTINUE READING
