Half of subtype B Brazilian HIV-1 harbors the V3 tip GWGR instead of the GPGR. To investigate the evolution of GW variants, we analyzed 81 env sequences and 5 full-length GW genomes from antiretroviral-naive individuals sampled between 1983 and 1999. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that GW strains intermingle in the tree with other subtype B sequences. The… CONTINUE READING
