An HIV-1 antibody from an elite neutralizer implicates the fusion peptide as a site of vulnerability.

Abstract:

The induction of broadly HIV-1 neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) by vaccination is challenging, but understanding how a subset of HIV-infected individuals (elite neutralizers) develops bNAbs may guide immunization strategies. Here, we describe the isolation and characterization of the bNAb ACS202 from an elite neutralizer that recognizes a new, trimer-specific and cleavage-dependent epitope at the gp120-gp41 interface, involving the glycan N88 and the gp41 fusion peptide. In addition, an Env tr...
