THE striking similarity between the first two human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) isolates Lai/LAV (formerly LAV, isolated at the Pasteur Institute1,2) and Lai/IIIB (formerly HTLV-IIIB, reported to be isolated from a pooled culture at the Laboratory of Tumor Cell Biology (LTCB) of the National Cancer Institute3,4) provoked considerable controversy in light of the high level of variability found among subsequent HIV-1 isolates5. In November 1990, the Office of Scientific Integrity at the… Expand

TLDR
The data indicate that the replication defect can be recovered in vivo by mutations in the envgene, without an associated pathogenic phenotype, and nef can function in the HXB/LW clone as a pathogenic factor that does not enhance HIV-1 replication in the thymus. Expand
Identification of HIV-1 determinants for replication in vivo.
TLDR
The heterochimeric SCID-hu Thy/Liv mouse is used as an in vivo model to define human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) determinants which are uniquely required for replication in vivo and six unique mutations in the V3 loop region of HXB2/LW have been identified which contribute to the increased replicate in vivo. Expand
Role of Nef in HIV-1 replication and pathogenesis.
TLDR
The studies discussed in the chapter will help identify the in vivo role of Nef in the development of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and extend work with in vitro systems. Expand
Analysis of HIV-1 genetic subtypes in Finland reveals good correlation between molecular and epidemiological data.
TLDR
Most subtype B strains in Finland were associated with homosexual transmission and about half of these were acquired in Finland, while most individuals harbouring non-B infections indicated heterosexual transmission and direct or indirect contact with Africa or Southeast Asia. Expand
Analysis of HIV-1 Genetic Subtypes in Finland Reveals Good Correlation Between Molecular and Epidemiological Data
The molecular epidemiology of HIV-1 genetic subtypes was studied in a cross-sectional sample collected from HIV-infected individuals living in Finland between 1988 and 1994 and compared withExpand
CA Mutation N57A Has Distinct Strain-Specific HIV-1 Capsid Uncoating and Infectivity Phenotypes
TLDR
It is shown that two widely used HIV-1 molecular clones exhibit significantly different N57A infectivity phenotypes due to fewer than a handful of CA amino acid differences and that these clones are both represented in HIV-infected individuals. Expand
A Novel Class of Anti-HIV Agents with Multiple Copies of Enfuvirtide Enhances Inhibition of Viral Replication and Cellular Transmission In Vitro
TLDR
Novel HIV-1 fusion inhibitors that may overcome the current limitations of enfuvirtide are constructed that provide a rationale to develop further novel anti-HIV agents by coupling additional antibodies of interest with alternative HIV-inhibitors via recombinantly-produced, self-assembled, modules. Expand
Inhibition of Lysosome and Proteasome Function Enhances Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Infection
TLDR
The evidence presented here highlights the important role of the lysosomes/proteasomes in the destruction of infectious HIV-1SF2 and could have implications for the development of novel antiviral agents that might take advantage of these innate defenses. Expand
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 IIIB Selected for Replication In Vivo Exhibits Increased Envelope Glycoproteins in Virions without Alteration in Coreceptor Usage: Separation of In Vivo Replication from Macrophage Tropism
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the LW HIV-1 isolate selected in vivo produced more infectious viral particles that contained higher levels of the Env protein gp120, and selection of the laboratory-attenuated Lai/IIIB isolate in vivo leads to altered tropism but not coreceptor usage of the virus. Expand
Maintaining the integrity of human immunodeficiency virus sequence databases
TLDR
Detailed analyses are presented of problematic sets of HIV-1 sequences in the database that include sequence anomalies suggestive of mislabeling or sample contamination problems, to help identify potentially flawed data and ensure the integrity of sequence databases. Expand

Isolation of a T-lymphotropic retrovirus from a patient at risk for acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).
TLDR
From these studies it is concluded that this virus as well as the previous HTLV isolates belong to a general family of T-lymphotropic retroviruses that are horizontally transmitted in humans and may be involved in several pathological syndromes, including AIDS. Expand
Serological analysis of a subgroup of human T-lymphotropic retroviruses (HTLV-III) associated with AIDS.
TLDR
Another subgroup of HTLV, designated HTLV-III, has now been isolated from many patients with AIDS and pre-AIDS and is shown to be a true member of the HTLV family. Expand
Genetic variation in HTLV-III/LAV over time in patients with AIDS or at risk for AIDS.
TLDR
The repeated isolation from a given individual of only highly related viruses raises the possibility that some type of interference mechanism may prevent simultaneous infection by more than one major genotypic form of the virus. Expand
Evolution of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 nucleotide sequence diversity among close contacts.
TLDR
Evidence is provided of a continuous spectrum of sequence diversity between any two isolates ranging from those derived from the same person to those from close contacts and, ultimately, those from unrelated individuals. Expand
Detection, isolation, and continuous production of cytopathic retroviruses (HTLV-III) from patients with AIDS and pre-AIDS.
TLDR
A cell system was developed for the reproducible detection of human T-lymphotropic retroviruses (HTLV family) from patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or with signs or symptoms that frequently precede AIDS (pre-AIDS), and it provides large amounts of virus for detailed molecular and immunological analyses.

Complete nucleotide sequences of functional clones of the AIDS virus.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the proviral form of HXB2 has now been determined and its structure is quite similar to that previously determined for HTLV-III/LAV clones whose biological capacities had not previously been demonstrated. Expand
Evolution of sequences encoding the principal neutralization epitope of human immunodeficiency virus 1 is host dependent, rapid, and continuous.
TLDR
The extent of variation within the nucleic acid sequence encoding this epitope was studied in DNA directly obtained from peripheral blood mononuclear cells of six children and their plasma donor, revealing that the quasi-species distribution of sequences obtained after cloning varied from recipient to recipient and that the distance from the donor sequences increased over time.

Nucleotide sequence of the AIDS virus, LAV
TLDR
The complete 9193-nucleotide sequence of the probable causative agent of AIDS, lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV), has been determined and shows two novel open reading frames the authors call Q and F, which place LAV apart from the previously characterized family of human T cell leukemia/lymphoma viruses.
