Patient Patient: HAND Status HIVE + ADC This patient had two forms of HAND: HIVE and ADC
Patient Patient: Sex M This patient was male
Patient Patient: Risk Factor IV Drug User This patient may have contracted the HIV virus through IV drug use
Patient Patient: Viral Load At Sampling Unknown Viral Load Information on this patient’s viral load at time of sampling could not be found
Patient Patient: CD4 Count At Sampling 5 cells/ul This patient had a CD4 count of 5 cells/ul at time of sampling
Patient Patient: HIV Therapy Status AZT This patient had received AZT therapy prior to sampling

Sampling Sampling: Tissue Spleen This sample was obtained from spleen tissue
Sequence Sequence: Polyprotein (Protein) Tat (gp160) This sequence segment covers the Tat and Gp160 HIV regions
Sequence Sequence: Genotyping Information1 B (B)* This sequence was listed by the originating data source as a B subtype sequence. jpHMM genotyping confirmed subtype as B. Recombination testing detected recombination events in this sequence (indicated by the asterisk).
Sequence Sequence: Accession Number U82096 The sequence accession number for this sequence is U82096
Sequence Sequence: PMID 9718130 The sequence PMID for this sequence is 9718130
Sequence Sequence: Length in Nucleotides 150 The sequence length for this sequence segment is 150 nucleotides
Sequence HIV Sequence cccaaat… The nucleotide sequence for this sequence is “cccaaat…”
  1. 1The sequence genotyping annotation provides genotyping and recombination information in the following format: Subtype as reported in the original source material (Subtype as reported by jpHMM genotyping) and recombination information. Additional symbols used in this annotation include: “#” = not tested due to insufficient length of sequence, “*” = p < 0.05 for recombination test, “(No)” = p > 0.05 for recombination test
