||Recombinant SIV p55- Strains: SIV mac 23g and SIV smH4 is glycosylated with N-linked sugars and produced using baculovirus vectors in insect cells.
||Simian immunodeficiency virus, SIV, is a retrovirus that is found in strains, having the HIV-1and HIV-2 specific strains that infect humans. SIV strains may cause an AIDS-like immune deficiency known as SAIDS (simian acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) if they cross species boundaries. HIV-2 is more similar to SIV strains than to HIV-1, suggesting for the first time the simian origin of HIV. HIV-2 is derived from the SIV strain found in sooty mangabeys whereas HIV-1, the predominant virus found in humans, is derived from SIV strains infecting chimpanzees.
