At least 20 mutations of the CCR5 receptors have been identified. The 32 deletion protects homozygous subjects from HIV infection, and delays progression of the disease in heterozygous patients.Receptor del CCR5-wt: Receptor del CCR5-wtReceptor de CCR5-32: Receptor de CCR5-32Methodology: Methodology DNA extraction: - Buffy coat Amplification of DNA: - One tube PCR Electrophoresis: - 2% Agarose-TBEResults: Results 188 bp Wt/Wt 156 bp Wt/32 32 Deletion : 32 Deletion Results: Results 1- From the 83 patients 8 were (wt/32). 2- 75 patients were wt/wt. 3- All (wt/32) survived more than 11 years without treatment (slow progressors). 4-None of the (wt/32) children were infected.Slide26: Epidemiology Immune response Genetic factors Virus subtypes Slide27: HIV-1 SUBTYPESSlide28: Determine HIV-1 subtypes circulating in Panama. Evaluate the genetic diversity of the HIV subtypes identified. Correlate HIV subtypes variability with transmission patterns, immune response, and progression. OBJECTIVESSlide29: Why gp41? Small fragment Highly conserved region between M,N and O (Agwale et al (2001) J. Clin. Microbiol. 39:2110-2114). Can be used for phylogenetic analyses Study Samples: Study Samples Subjects: 25 HIV positive patients from Saint Thomas Hospital that came for viral load evaluation. Method: Gp41 Sequencing Slide31: Methodology DNA extraction gp41 Nested PCR Chunfu Y. et al. J. Clin. Microbiol, Vol. 38, 1999. Sequencing 1058 pb 1516 pb 460bpSlide32: SEQUENCING 1-Genotyping: drug resistance 2-HIV subtypesPanama vs other Subtypes: Panama vs other Subtypes Subtype B Other SubtypesFuture Research: Future Research 1-To determine the importance of other mutations in progression of the infection. 2-Immune mediators of resistance and/or progression. 3-Circulation of different HIV subtypes and recompbinant forms in Panama.Where we are??: Where we are?? 1-What do we have? More than 300 samples (plasma and buffy coat) of HIV infected patients. 2-What facilities do we have? Flow cytometer, ABI-310 sequencer, viral load and genotying equipments. 3-What do we need? Improved softwares for subtyping and genetic analysis of recombinant forms.Slide36: INSTITUTO CONMEMORATIVO GORGAS You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
