101) If you examined human CD4 + Helper-T cells exposed to the green monkey-adapted vaccine virus, you would NEVER find A) Newly synthesized DNA chromosomes of HIV within CD4 + helper T-cells B) RNA chromosomes from the initial infection of HIV within CD4 + helper T-cells C) DNA chromosomes of HIV inserted into the chromosomes of CD4 + helper T-cells D) Newly synthesized reverse-transcriptase in CD4 + helper T-cells E) All of the above answers are correct 102) If you examined human CD4 + Helper-T cells exposed to the gorilla-adapted vaccine virus, you would NEVER find 103) The safest virus with respect to preventing the virus from evolving inside a patient’s body to cause AIDS would be (you can assume that the initial vaccine virus given to a patient is genetically uniform): 104) Assume (in this problem only) that both vaccines proved to be safe but instead of preventing infection by wild type HIV, they provided only partial protection. Exposure of people to the gorilla-adapted vaccine did not protect them from getting an infection but reduced by 50% the number of HIV’s viruses residing in an infected individual. Exposure of people to the green-monkey adapted vaccine reduced by 50% the number of people getting infected, but in those individuals that did get infected the HIV mutation rate was doubled due to a persistent change in the metabolism of vaccine-exposed CD4 + helper-T-cells. In vaccinated people that became infected with wild type HIV, the time to onset of AIDS symptoms:

105) If vaccinated people were also given AZT, this procedure: A) Would help protect against rare reverse mutations that made the vaccine virus capable of causing disease. B) Would stop gorilla-adapted vaccine from entering the CD4 + helper-T cells C) Would provide a second mechanism preventing the green monkey-adapted vaccine from entering CD4+ helper-T cells D) Answers B and C are both correct E) None of these answers are correct _________________________________________________________________________________________

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
