Table 1 Chronology of serological (ELISA & WB) and PCR analyses of monkeys experimentally infected with STLV-1 Tan 90 or STLV-1 Pat 74

From: Delayed seroconversion to STLV-1 infection is associated with mutations in the pol and rex genes

  1. * WB status = + if reactivity to both Gag p24 and Env gp46 original were observed, I + indeterminate, and – if no reactivity at all. The intensity of the WB was rated as ranging from negative (-) to 4 + .
  2. ▲ PCR was performed for both pol and pX genes. All + samples were + for both, and all – samples were – for both.
