Entry term(s) HTLV-IV
LAV-2
virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana tipo 2
virus linfotrópico T humano tipo IV
Scope note: Especie de VIH relacionada con el VIH-1 pero que posee componentes antigénicos diferentes y tiene una diferente composición de ácidos nucleicos. Comparte reactividad serológica y homología de secuencias con el Lentivirus SIV de los simios e infecta sólo los linfocitos T4 que expresan el marcador fenotípico CD4.
