Table 2 Drug resistance mutations in samples successfully amplified and sequenced

From: Transmitted drug resistance mutations and subtype diversity amongst HIV-1 sero-positive voluntary blood donors in Accra, Ghana

Gene Samples Amplified Samples Sequenced Samples with DRMs
PR 28 12 1 PI
RT 32 20 2 NRTIs
1 NNRTIs
  1. Table 2shows the number of samples successfully amplified and sequenced in the PR and RT genes of HIV-1. Twenty-eight (50%) and 32 (53%) were successfully amplified for the PR and RT genes respectively. Of these, 12/28 (43%) and 20/32 (63%) were successfully sequenced for the PR and RT genes respectively. One (1) sample had minor DRM in the PR gene whilst 1 minor and 2 major DRMs were found in the RT gene of three (3) samples
  2. Key: PR Protease, RT Reverse Transcriptase, PI Protease Inhibitor, NRTIs Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors, NNRTIs Non-nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors
