[The biological properties of the HIV isolated from a virus carrier living in the Byelorussian SSR].

[Article in Russian]


Biological properties of an AIDS agent first isolated from a native citizen in the USSR are presented. The source of the virus was a young Byelorussian woman who in the near past had had sexual contacts with a citizen from one of the Central Africa countries. The isolate is thought to be of HIV-I type. It replicated perfectly in many continuous lymphocyte lines and had HIV-characteristic morphology. The protein spectrum of the isolate was gp120, gp41, p65/51, p55, p32, p24, p17. Reverse transcriptase activity was detected in the culture fluid of the virus-containing cell cultures. The isolate was designated HIV-IZ.
