Origin of HIVs:   Cross-species transmission based on SIV/HIV genomic  sequence comparisons HIV-1 from chimpanzees (SIV cpz ) HIV-2 from sooty mangabeys (SIV sm )

HIV-1 Genetic Subtypes [i.e., clades] Group M, Group N, Group O represent 3 independent primate – human  transmission events Group M:  Global distribution; further classified into clades #  [A, B, C . .] Group N:  Cameroon Group O:  West-central Africa [# clade = taxonomic group whose members share a single common ancestor] C irculating  R ecombinant  F orms [Growing evidence that Group “O” viruses may have originated in gorillas]

HIV is a Retrovirus – it belongs to the  Lentivirus* subfamily Other Lentiviruses: Visna virus EIAV BIV FIV SIV  (discovered after HIV) * Lentiviruses are genetically much more complex than ‘standard’  Retroviruses.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus [HIV] Virion structure:  enveloped virus capsid [p24] matrix [p17] spikes [gp120 + gp41] Nucleocapsid contains: 2 ss(+)RNAs as genome [~10,000 ribonucleotides] Reverse transcriptase (RT) Integrase (assoc. w/ RT) Protease Spikes exist as trimers [sets of  3 (gp120+gp41)]
