Abstract
The dynamic HIV-1 epidemic has resulted in the emergence of several different subtypes and recombinant forms that may differ in biological properties. A recombinant form of CRF02_AG and sub-subtype A3 (A3/02) was recently described based on env sequencing and associated with faster disease progression rates compared with its parental strains. Here, we performed near full-length sequencing of the A3/02 variant to characterize the recombination patterns of a potential novel and more pathogenic circulating recombinant form of HIV-1 in Guinea-Bissau.
